Vittoria uses graphene that is two to eight atoms thick--nearly invisible.
Examining how graphene responds to accelerating and turning corners, Vittoria constructed them in a way that allows the top and bottom layers to react differently during use.
Vittoria can’t say exactly how many miles to expect from these tires—that depends on trial conditions and how hard you ride. Leading up to and on a recent trip through Nepal, I put hundreds of miles on the Morsa and the Mezcal. Fellow bikers’ tires lost pressure on a daily basis; they’d spin out on a slippery rock.
The benefits of Graphene
1. Enormous surface area: 1 gram = around 2,630 m2 that can facilitate any chemical process
2. High mechanical resistance: approximately 200 times stronger than steel
3. High thermal conductibility: more than 2 times that of a diamond
4. Less density: is equal to half that of aluminium
5. High elasticity: equal to 6 times that of steel
6. High electrical conductibility, transparency, lightness, flexibility and mechanical resistance
