Mezcal

Fast all-rounder with an updated modern and clean design, enhanced with G+ Isotech* compound. Defined center ridge tread with capable side knobs, emphasized on speed.

  • Defined center-ridge tread for low rolling resistance
  • Low profile, densely spaced knob configuration
  • Multiple effective braking and climbing edges
  • Capable side knobs

 
Note: G+ and 4C are only used in the TNT version of this tire.

“For dry conditions, I only use the Mezcal.” – Pauline Ferrand-Prevot (2015 World XC Champion)

“The Mezcal is the absolute and most advanced tire. The knobs in the middle of the tire offer a great rolling performance and the soft sidewall give the perfect grip for fast curves. The most impressive is actually how strong this tire is despite its light weight. The tire has a good flexibility which provides both comfort and traction.” – Lukas Flückiger (BMC MTB Racing Team)

Editorial Reviews

Art’s Cyclery

While not having planned to run these tires until after race day, I realized during my pre-ride that the Mezcal G+ was the right tire at the right time. Whether I was on loose single track, or standing and hammering up a fire road climb, the grip and cornering capabilities of this tire won me over.

I never felt uncomfortable or too skittish on the wet stuff. There's no question that Vittoria have done some work on this tire. Especially in terms of the toughness, strength and compound performance, with the 4 compounds in the tread being unique to this Italian brand - science being useful I'd say. We've been so impressed with the Vittoria use of graphene.

Popular Science

Vittoria uses graphene that is two to eight atoms thick—nearly invisible. By adding it to mountain-bike tires, Vittoria achieves the dream combo of characteristics—light, sticky, and tough—that rubber can’t on its own. In fact, adding graphene to rubber creates a tire that changes depending on how you ride. When riding on a straightaway, the tire stays relatively hard. When braking or cornering, it softens.

Speed, grip, puncture-resistance, and durability: Vittoria’s graphene-infused cross-country Mezcal has it all. And we thought that was impossible. It’s lightweight and grippy (even on slimy Vermont roots and rocks), and after a month of daily use, it shows less wear than other XC tires I’ve run for the same period of time.
