Vittoria has embraced its role at the forefront of bicycle industry and in the year 2000, through an explicit commitment to pushing the envelope and driving innovation. This commitment has seen Vittoria achieve several innovation milestones. This includes cotton casing tires, latex inner tubes and the blending of 4 different compounds known as 4C all combining seamlessly in the same tire. Vittoria s contribution to improving your ride however, is the ability to leverage the qualities of Graphene, deployed in both our tires and wheels. Graphene is derived from graphite and it s structure is very thin, molecules are as thin as an atom 1 1,000,000,000th of a meter one gram of Graphene can cover a 2.630 square meter surface.
With the aim to always push the boundaries of what is possible, Vittoria succeeded in the development of a new generation of Graphene GRAPHENE 2.0 G 2.0 takes the original Graphene compound foundation that Vittoria built, and functionalizes the advancements in performance, for each specific application
Vittoria is the pioneer and the world s leading manufacturer of tires with cotton casing. The sublime performance of Vittoria tires and tubulars is the product of years of experience, R D, and advanced production technology. At its heart is our mastery of fine-cotton Corespun production
Vittoria 4 compounds 4C layering technology features separate base and surface compounds, in both the center and the side areas of the tread. This approach enables to fine-tune the flex of the tread-base and tread-surface separately, placing the correct compound exactly where it is needed for maximum cornering, climbing, rolling, and braking performance
Vittoria off-road tires cover aggressive treads and strengthened constructions to prepare the rider for the huge demands of jumps, drops and various tire-threatening obstacles typical of mountainbiking.
Vittoria MTB tires come with different types of casing to satisfy all needs
A tubeless ready bead allows the tire to be used either with a tube, or with just tire sealant no tube . It is chosen for its unique performance. It locks into the rim wall to provide an airtight seal and ensure easy tubeless set-up, and to optimize air retention minimize burping . The Open Tubular TLR tubeless ready shares the same production process and properties as the Tubular, with the addition of a stronger bead material and a chafer for sidewall protection. For optimal safety, this tire is constructed to withstand 18-bar pressures on a standard alloy tubeless rim
Each tread is glued to the casing by hand. The tubular tire s round profile delivers several advantages over any clincher. Notably, tubular tires offer superior shock absorption and more predictable cornering. The broad tread-casing interface distributes shock loads more evenly through the casing, allowing the tire to absorb greater impacts without deflecting or slowing down.
The Open Tubular has the same production process and properties as the tubular but without a sown-in inner tube. Open Tubulars are handmade with aramid folding beads for optimal clinching.

Customer reviewsGreat tires for club rides
I ve had a couple sets of the Rubino Pro 2.0 All-Round tires 700x25 s and have been very happy with them. They have a nice, supple ride quality, don t get flats too often, and last a long time. You probably wouldn t use these for racing but they seem ideal for training and club rides. Note the pressure range printed on the sidewalls is 100 - 130 psi, but I typically run mine at 90 psi rear and 80 psi front which feels great and so far I ve never had a pinch flat I weigh 195 and ride a Gunnar road bike w HED Belgium rims . fwiw - the blue sidewalls also look nice. Highly recommended.
