Vittoria Takes Compounds to the Next Level
MADONE, Italy – ISOGrip is the name of Vittoria’s newest compound for road racing tires which the Italian – Thai tire maker showed at Eurobike’s Demo Day last month. According to Vittoria ISOGrip takes tire compounds to the next level and it’s the first coming from the company’s new compound factory in Thailand that will be officially opened next January.
In 2011 and 2012 Vittoria has invested considerably in R&D, dedicating an entire factory to the research, development and production of this new compound. The company says ”This revolutionary compound created in Vittoria labs takes our proven treads and casings to the next level.”
Secret road tests
ISOGrip has been secretly tested during Giro d’Italia and Tour de France by pro teams such as Rabobank and is now available to the public. Vittoria’s entire cotton family, from Corsa CX to Pavé CG, has the new innovative compound that earned spectacular test results.
Vittoria says about these test results: “By comparing the laboratory tests with the previous developed compound Kevlar SiO2, ISOGrip holds the identical mechanical properties, improves scratch resistance, increases wet grip and reaches a level of adherence to the ground never felt before, without any increase in the rolling resistance. ISOGrip defines maximum grip and speed in performance tires. On dry or wet road conditions, ISOGrip® will take you beyond your limits.”
