Who better than a 2-time XC World Champion can give you hints and tips about tires? Dario Acquaroli (read his story here) unveils the only run-flat insert that will make you and your bike unstoppable, and the perfect tires to conquer the desert!
BE UNSTOPPABLE WITH AIR-LINER RUN-FLAT INSERT
"At the Hero Dubai, you will need the proper equipment to win the dry and sandy trails of the desert. Whatever the conditions, with your tires paired with Air-Liner - the run-flat tire insert from Vittoria - you will be unstoppable. Air-Liner allows you to cover up to 200 km on run-flat. It takes you (and your bike) to the finish line, safe and sound. Re-usable and easy to set up, Air-Liner protects the rim, increases the grip and prevents pinch flats. Long story short: Air-Liner is the only insert for bike tires designed for run-flat riding. And it's a must-have."
CONQUER THE DESERT WITH #VITTORIAMEZCAL
Mezcal is the go-to tire for the desert because of its densely packed, low profile, knob configuration that allows for maximum speed. 4 compounds in the tread (4C) increase Mezcal’s wear life and also cornering, braking, and climbing performances. Considering the trails of the desert, Mezcal 2.25 front and rear is the most suitable option; also Mezcal 2.25 front and Terreno 2.25 rear can be a good combination. Terreno is a capable semi-slick XC tire for the fastest courses. Center scales are ramped, providing a fast rolling leading edge and sharp, responsive braking and cornering edges."
