The Australian Cycling Team is today proud to announce a two-year deal with Italian tyre maker Vittoria to supply the team with the new state-of-the-art Vittoria Graphene 2.0 tyre.
This deal will take the team through to the end of 2020 and gives certainty in terms of product quality and supply through the current four-year cycle.
Vittoria will also be working with the Australian Cycling Team to get the most out of the new Vittoria Graphene 2.0 tyre.
Kerrie Lee, Director Australian Distribution: “We are proud to continue our 16-year partnership with the Australian Track Cycling Team. Throughout this time Vittoria has united with the Track Team to produce the fastest track tyres in the world. With Vittoria’s new launch of Graphene 2.0 we are excited to know that the team will be on even faster tyres and can't wait to see the results.”
Simon Jones, Performance Director, Cycling Australia:
“Vittoria tyres are the leading tyre brand in the world and this agreement is fantastic for the team in the lead up to Tokyo. Vittoria have a history of continuous improvement and innovation which fits well with our performance first philosophy”.
The Vittoria Graphene 2.0 tyre:
“...the new 2.0 graphene is functionalized to enhance specific tire performances. In other words, where the first generation of graphene compounds raised the bar evenly, Graphene 2.0 pin-points each performance metric, and increases it disproportionately to the rest. Vittoria is now able to apply Graphene in such a way that it can achieve a performance boost specifically for speed, wet grip, durability and puncture resistance.” vittoria.com
