The World’s Fastest Tire: Vittoria Corsa Speed

Based on test results by independent test lab Wheel Energy in Finland, Vittoria determined it has developed the fastest bicycle tire ever measured. The new Graphene-enhanced, tubeless-ready Corsa Speed showed a 40% advantage over the same product without Graphene. Corsa Speed Tubeless-Ready (TLR) Vittoria’s Corsa Speed TLR is our first tubeless-ready product for road cycling and uses a cotton Corespun casing. Leveraging decades of experience in handmade cotton tires, Vittoria has developed the technology to create the lightest tubeless tire in the market at 205 grams. Its construction and the use of sealant makes it capable of self-healing virtually all punctures. The tread for Corsa Speed consists of Vittoria’s G+ Isotech compound, which is Vittoria’s unique compound with revolutionary material Graphene (as provided by technology partner Directa Plus). The Corsa Speed (TLR) is available in size 23-622 (700x23C). Corsa Speed Tubular Vittoria’s Corsa Speed is also available in a tubular version. Using the exact same cotton Corespun casing technology, it delivers a perfect match for wide aero tubular rims. This version of the Corsa Speed weighs only 220 grams. The Corsa Speed (Tubular) is available in size 23-28”. Graphene Makes Tires Intelligent Our Graphene-enhanced compounds become harder and softer, depending on the needs of the rider. If the tire is rolling straight, the rubber is at its hardest and offers low rolling resistance. If the rider breaks, accelerates or corners, the compounds soften and offer significantly more grip. No Compromise. Effectively, the introduction of Graphene allows for natural material barriers of rubber to be removed, which means that there is no longer the need for compromises between speed, grip, durability and puncture resistance. All these features are now reaching their maximum possibilities. In short, Vittoria is about to start a cycling revolution.

Vittoria Launches Off-Road Tires with Graphene

Vittoria’s World Championship-proven MTB tires are now benefitting significantly from the addition of Graphene. The new 4C and Graphene-enhanced performance tires, including new race-ready tread designs, expand the range to deliver speed, grip, strength and durability across all disciplines. In combination with the latest casing developments, Vittoria sets a higher standard in applied technologies for MTB that has never been reached before. The New Off-Road tires Vittoria’s updated Mezcal for XC has been completely redesigned and developed, now also improved with Graphene. It’s defined center-ridge tread achieves a low rolling resistance, while the braking and climbing edges offer effective grip. The new Morsa for AM is designed for the rougher and slippery Enduro courses, benefitting in speed and grip from the addition of Graphene. The 2.5 Morsa features a rTNT casing, designed to dominate downhill courses. The new E-Barzo and E-Goma are dedicated electric MTB bike tires, benefitting directly from Vittoria’s innovative use of the revolutionary material Graphene. Its strength allows these tires to easily deal with the acceleration torque that is generated by the added engines. Graphene and 4 Compounds (4C) This year, Vittoria capitalizes on its significant investment by adding the capability to design treads with four compounds. Every compound in each tread is developed with precision for its intended purpose, whether that is improved speed, grip, rolling resistance, or wear. With Vittoria’s G+ Isotech compounds, enhanced with Graphene, these properties are boosted to uncompromising levels of strength, weight and stability. Together Graphene and 4C offer both the optimal ingredients and the structure to take tire performance to a whole new level, yet decreasing the total weight of tires. The updated TNT (Tube No Tube) Constructions TNT represents the top-of-the-line Tubeless-Ready MTB casing available. TNT is a complete system, featuring class leading Sidewall-Protection, and performance compounds. What originated as our Tubeless ready casing has evolved into the obvious choice for World Class racers, who demand race day dependability. All new tires come in a variety of wheel sizes and widths, to suit every rider’s needs.

Besides the already mentioned yellow jersey, fi’zi:k got the polka dot jerseys (Chris Froome), the maillot blanc of Nairo Quintana the team classification (Team Movistar) and the combativity award with Bardet (AG2R-La Mondiale). The overall title came with 7 stages victories, such as the stunning performance of Rohan Dennis in Utrecht or the outstanding climb of Alpe d'Huez of Thibaut Pinot. This year's edition saw 7 out of 22 participating teams battling on board of our saddles, whereas 7 aces distinguished themselves in the peloton racing with our #R3B shoes. Team Sky's Chris Froome, aboard his Fi'zi:k Antares 00 Saddle, has won the 2015 Tour De France.

Vision Tech Usa – Metron 40 ready with disc brakes

Carbon fiber is the material of choice for nearly every bike component. There are some exceptions to this, but carbon wheels have been used at every level of the sport for over a decade now. They are incredibly useful across different applications in that the same set of wheels could be used on many terrains and surfaces. In the last year, Vision carbon fiber wheels won elite cyclo cross world cups and Grand Tour stages. With that in mind, which carbon wheels should you choose for your bike? If you’ve made the move to disc brakes, we’d suggest the Metron 40 Clincher (or Tubular) Disc wheelset. This wheelset uses the lower profile (but still aerodynamic) Metron 40 rim. This rim combines both strength and low weight and is part of the Metron 40 – the wheel of choice for the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix and for Team Colombia’s climbers at the Vuelta a Espana. If you’re considering disc brakes on your next bike, we’d suggest holding off on a wheel purchase, disc brakes offer many safety and handling benefits, so upgrading to a set of Metron 40 Disc wheels with your next bike will upgrade your braking performance and your wheels at the same time. On a side note, disc brakes are good news because in every wheeled sport, the ability to slow down more quickly and better, has meant that competitors can go faster. Counter-intuitive, perhaps, but true.

FSA MegaTooth Technology for Mtb

FSA MegaTooth chainrings, the latest in technology to meet the needs of top riders, and an answer to the strong market demand for “1X” (Pronounced ‘ONE BYE’) drive train systems; systems that are simple, light and robust, with one only chainring at the front and a wide range cassette at the rear. 1X systems require a special chain ring with a very unique tooth profile that is quite different from traditional chain rings. Why? The reason is simple: with 1X systems there’s no front derailleur or chain device to retain the chain and prevent chain drops, so the chainring itself must retain the chain. This is possible thanks to the distinctive design of MegaTooth chainrings, with alternating “thick-thin” tooth profiles that perfectly fit the chain links, coupled with a unique curved shape that significantly aids retention in all riding conditions. Developing this special design was hard work: how to maximize longevity? How to manage contamination with mud and dirt? How to reduce friction? Many months of designing, riding and testing covering all these aspects resulted in a unique, innovative and incredibly effective product: MegaTooth!
