Vittoria Corsa G+ Tubular Graphene Road Tyre
Usually dispatched within 24 hours
Average connection time 25 secs
The world’s best-known and most-used cotton tubular tire is the best performance tire: fast, flexible, reliable and proven by millions of race kilometers, evolved.
- The world’s best tire
- 4 compounds for best speed, grip, durability and puncture protection
- Kevlar®** reinforced Corespun K for increased sidewall protection
Graphene is a revolutionary material in the form of a very thin, nearly transparent sheet of pure carbon. In its extreme form it is as thin as a single atom (1/100,000,000th of a metre). Vittoria used Directa Plus Graphene called G+, which is 2 to 8 atoms thin.
The Benefits of Graphene
- Enormous surface area: 1 gram – around 2630m² that can facilitate any chemical process
- High mechanical resistance: approximately 200 times stronger than steel
- High thermal conductibility: more than 2 times that of a diamond
- Less density: is equal to half that of aluminium
- High elasticity: equal to 6 times that of steel
- High electrical conductibility, transparency, lightness, flexibility and mechanical resistance
Vittoria and Graphene ITS and No Compromise
With the application of Graphene in Vittoria wheels & tyres, we have truly developed revolutionary products. Therefore, we have created a new product range called the “Intelligent Tyre System” (IT’S)
Vittoria tyres are now intelligent. ITS compounds become harder and softer, depending on the needs of the rider. If the tyre 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. Prior to the advanced development of Graphene, there was always the requirement of choosing between optimising, or aiming at, speed, grip, durability and puncture protection. 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 such compromises between speed, grip, durability and puncture resistance. All these features are now reaching their maximum possibilities.
Vittoria is the world’s leading manufacturer of tyres with cotton Corespun casing. The sublime performance of Vittoria tyres and tubulars is the product of years of experience. R&D, and advance production technology. At its heart is our mastery of fine-cotton Corespun production. Simply put, the finer the Corespun fabric, the more supple the tyre casing. The casing conforms closer to the roads surface, providing a smoother ride, easier rolling, and better grip. The grade of fabric used in a tyre’s casing is expressed in threads-per-inch (TPI): the higher the TPI number, the finer the threads, the denser the weave, and the suppler the tyre. Uniquely, Vittoria makes casings with 320 TPI Corespun yarn – the finest available.
Vittoria cotton casings differ in thread size and additive content, according to intended use:
- Corespun T 320 TPI utilizes the finest thread available, exclusive to Vittoria. This special 320 TPI fabric makes for the lightest, supplest, and fastest casing ever, to sustain the highest pressures used on track.
- Corespun K320 TPI has a mixture of Kevlar®** threads for casings, where strength is the essence.
- Corespun 320 TPI is our most advanced Corespun casing, made of the finest poly-cotton thread with no added Kevlar®**
- Corespun 290 TPI is a high-TPI cotton with polyester yarn, producing a flexible, strong casing sustaining high pressures and offering outstanding performance and comfort.
- Cotton 220 TPI Cotton is the traditional material of high-quality racing tubulars. Vittoria uses the finest grade of natural cotton, 220 TPI, in a diverse range of top-class tubulars.

Nylon is a robust and durable artificial fibre traditionally used for strong tyre casings. The artificial fibre can be very light but is not as supple as Corespun. Our Nylon casings set a new standard in their class. Vittoria offers casings in Nylon 180 TPI, 150 TPI, 120 TPI, Nylon 60 TPI and Nylon 26 TPT, each equipping tyres at its respective point on the price-performance scale, and all conferring the Vittoria characteristics of comfort, speed and good handling.
Vittoria’s unique Graphene compound with revolutionary G+*, as provided by technology partner Directa Plus. No compromise is necessary with this compound that is superior in speed (rolling resistance), grip, durability and wear resistance.
4 Compounds (4C)
Exclusively developed by Vittoria to achieve performance products without compromise. Vittoria 4C is a layering process, using 4 separate compounds in the same thread. The 4C process offers unmatched versatility, by allowing for separate base and surface compounds, in both the centre and side areas of the tread. Benefiting from the different properties of each compound, including the G+ Isotech, their distribution is extensively tested to deliver the best products imaginable.
3 Compounds (3C)
Applied by Vittoria to deliver all-round products without compromise. Vittoria 3C is a layering process, using 3 separate compounds in the same tread. The different properties of each compound, including the G+ Isotech, allow for the improved experience in all circumstances.

Fantastic tyre both in tubular and clincher version. They roll and corner impeccably on both rough and smooth surfaces and in the wet and dry. The only downside is that they wear that little bit quicker (more rear than front as you'd expect) but definitely my go to tyre. Always keep a look out for bundle deals or deals in these tyres and fair play to PBK they come up trumps quite regularly.
Reliable, Supple & Fast
I like experimenting new stuff especially when comes to cycling and Tubulars is one switch which I haven't regret making. Started cycling using clincher 3 years ago with Conti GP4000 even tried using Latex vs Butyl inner tubes. Then one year ago took the courage and switch to Tubular. Read a few comparison online and Vittoria Corsa G+ was my pick. Like most people my biggest fear was Punctual and Speed wasn't that important for my leisure type of riding. After riding these tyres for more than 1,000km now , tried both 25" and 28" even on Tan vs Black tyre wall and I reach this conclusion. I have not experience any punctual till date and grip and safety is very good both in wet and dry. I do notice that the Black side wall tyre seems to hold air better compare to Tan wall. But you still need to pump them up for each ride. And unlike Clinchers, these tyres likes to be pump up above 120psi to enjoy the suppleness. I tried 85 - 100psi which I use to do when riding clincher but hear a fellow experience rider telling me to pump it up to 120-130psi so I follow and I am glad I did. These tyres roll faster noticeably. I am glad I pick Vittoria as my choice for Tubular and it change my perspective about using Tubular altogether. Conti GP4000 are great clinchers but I think Vittoria are better Tubular makers.
