Vittoria has expanded its nylon casing technology with radial casing. Radial casing is different to conventional casing. The cord plies of radial casing are set at 85° to the direction of travel (from bead to bead) making that the cords deform freely as the tire flexes. In conventional casing, the cords overlap diagonally to the direction of travel, causing more friction between the two plies.
Due to the direction of the cords, the tire gains flexibility resulting in more comfort and grip. The flexible casing means, the width of the tire is reduced by 1mm making it a lighter, more aerodynamic and therefore faster tire.
Radial casing is Vittoria’s premium of nylon casing technology, exclusive to our Diamante tires.
