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