There is a reason why so many important teams have chosen Vittoria as their trusted tire provider for the 2018 racing season: our high-quality professional bike tires make Vittoria the must-have partner for any professional team. As a matter of fact, thanks to both 4C (four compounds) and Graphene technologies, we are able to provide professional and amateur cyclists with excellent tires.
In particular, as far as road cycling pro teams are concerned, the Corsa series is the favourite tire choice for racing: Corsa G+ is the standard tire for road races, Corsa Speed is the best option for time trials, Corsa Control is the tire specifically designed for cobble stones and paving. Concerning training tires, the Rubino Pro series is the most popular choice for pro teams.

Given the success Vittoria has achieved in professional road cycling we have decided to equally invest in professional mountain bike racing.

These teams mainly rely on the Vittoria cross country tires Barzo, Mezcal and Gato for their versatility. All these tires are mostly used in their TNT version, enhanced with 4C (four compounds) and Graphene technologies.
In particular Barzo is the most efficient tire for technical trails, Mezcal is the ultimate choice for dry conditions and Gato is the tire specifically designed for the best rolling in wet conditions.
We are very proud to be the tire of choice for so many important teams. Their contribution to the development of our products is fundamental: the feedback and suggestions related to the tires they use in racing is extremely important for the development of our high-performance professional bike tires.
