“Barzo is sick when it gets a little gnarlier, if theres more rocks and roots, or deep loam, this is what I go for.” – Tom Sampson (Yeti-Vittoria)

“Some tires have a lot of traction, and some tires have a lot of speed, but it’s rare that you can find a tire like the Barzo that somehow manages to have both.  No matter the terrain these tires bite in and find traction, allowing me to confidently corner all-out every time.  In loamy soil they are literally like velcro in the corners, with so much traction it actually takes some getting used to.” – Justin Lindine (Apex/Hyperthreads)

“I love the Barzo on my light zippy cross-country bike because I typically ride this bike on faster rolling trails like my hometown, Bend, OR. The Barzo is light, it rolls fast and it can handle the soft loose corners with ease.” – Lindsey Voreis (Ladies All-Ride)

Editorial Reviews

PinkBike

I found the 2.25'' wide Barzo to be pretty darn impressive. As a front tire, it offered plenty of cornering bite when leaned over on most terrain, and I'd say that it's more predictable than its speedy tread pattern had me expecting. The caveat comes when talking about loose, dusty dirt, which is when the tire tends to push a bit more than some of its competition.

Initial trials on local trails left two impressions: 
1. The Barzo is a fast tire with honest-to-goodness knobs. 
2. The Barzos’ cornering limits are higher than my own willingness to commit.

MTBR

Very fast tires with more grip than traditional XC racing tires. Lots of higher grip tire pairing options available. Many sizing and casing options, easily seals tubeless, excellent grip for speed and weight, extremely light.

Dirt Rag

Besides the awesome traction and control in rough, technical sections thanks to the lug pattern and wide carcass, the Barzo is a fast rolling tire on smooth fire roads and even on pavement if you ride to the trail.
