One of the secrets of the generally-recognised outstanding
quality 
of Vittoria tyres lies in their
casing tech-nology 
, particularly the
TPI
. As can be seen from the pyramids to the side, all the tubulars and tyres in the Vittoria range are classified according to their
TPI number
.- What is TPI?TPI stands for threads per inch (2.54 cm), referring to a one inch length of casing.The casing is the "heart " of the tyre or tubular and is made of RUBBER + THREADS (nylon, cotton, Kevlar®,
polycotton…).
How is TPI calculated?1 inch (2.54 cm)TPI is calculated by counting the number of threads contained in a one inch (2.54 cm) length of casing.
more threads
(high TPI) =
less rubber
(in the same casing surface conditions)This means:- LESS WEIGHTMore threads in the casing rubber means less rubber is needed to fill the gaps between the threads.- GREATER FLEXIBILITY and COMFORTMore threads in an inch means thinner and more flexible tyres.- LOWER ROLLING RESISTANCEEnergy is mainly lost through rubber deformation. If there is less rubber, more of the energy absorbed by the tyre during rolling is used for movement, and this means smoother running. Vittoria TPI's range from 26 to 320 (see table on previous page):- 26 to 220 for
nylon casings;
- 220 to 320 for cotton and
polycotton casings
.
320 
TPI is a record which Vittoria has achieved thanks to the constant efforts of its Research and Development team.This is the ultimate guarantee of outstanding performance and reliability.
