For the worst road conditions, The Rubino Pro Control is a folding tire with a very robust construction, capable of handling the worst of road conditions, without sacrificing the performance the Rubino range is known for. With full bead-to-bead tread wrap, cuts and punctures are dramatically reduced, and are reinforced with the PRB anti-puncture layer inside the casing. The Rubino Pro Control also shares the exclusive 3C Graphene compound structure, long service life, puncture protection, sharp handling traits, and lightweight folding bead material of the Rubino Pro.
3C COMPOUND: Road tires need to deliver speed, control and durability. Vittoria 3C Graphene compounds are formulated to give good grip with the low rolling resistance, while still providing a long useful wear life.
FOLDING Clincher: The most convenient choice, as this construction allows the tire to be stored in very compact size. Also, they are lighter than rigid alternatives as there is no wire inside the bead. The perfomance of such tires is better.
Nylon Casing: Nylon is a robust and durable artificial fiber traditionally used for strong tire casings. Nylon threads are less thin than cotton ones, so casings have a lower number of threads per inch. The advantages of nylon casings is that they are strong and durable, extending the wear life of the casing. However, because it is an artificial fiber, it is not as supple (soft/flexible) as cotton.
About GRAPHENE technology in tires: Graphene is the innovative material used by Vittoria in compounds to improve performance of tires. Graphene is the world´s thinnest material but at the same time one of the strongest ever used for consumer applications. Made of a single hexagonal-shape layer of carbon atoms, Graphene interacts with rubber by filling the space in between the rubber molecules. It acts like a magnet, making rubber molecules closer to one another and improving the overall rubber structure. Graphene´s main properties are related to: Thinness / Strength / Flexibility / Lightness.
