Eminent Cycles choose Vittoria to treat their traction obsession
Vittoria Mazza will be featuring Eminent Cycles brand-new “Ongold” Onset MT. As the US-based manufacturer clearly states with regards to the Onset MT, this is an mtb for riders thriving when things get nastier, riskier and faster; for mountain bikers whose reward comes from overcoming risks and challenges. The Onset MT can be truly defined as a “Full Enduro”. In fact, this bike has been designed with one word in mind: Traction. Eminent worked on all the different components that come into play when aiming to maximize traction; especially on those points of contact between the bike and the ground such as tires.
Tires are crucial when it comes to traction as they affect not only the overall riding experience of the bike but also its ability to inspire confidence and trust even in the most extreme conditions. That said, Vittoria is proud to be the tire choice of Eminent Cycles for their Onset MT, and even prouder to take care of their traction obsession with some Mazza therapy.
Mazza combines years of athlete input with cutting edge tread technology, raising the bar on the mixed terrain Enduro tire category. Starting with a defined center tread, the Mazza uses deep siping in the direction of rotation, allowing the tire to roll fast while still opposing drift, especially in off-camber terrain. The stepped leading edge rolls like a ramp, but digs in on climbs, making Mazza a top choice for both front and rear use. Substantial room was designed into the center tread to provide braking traction, while also accelerating cleaning. Cornering on the Mazza is handled by Vittoria’s trademark progressive sipe width technology, which gives a gummy inside effective edge, but without the instability that competitors experience on the outside of the tread.
Mazza features the 4C compound, Vittoria formula for ultimate traction performance for mtb tires. Four separate graphene-enhanced rubber compounds are layered inside the tread, allowing the surface of the tread to remain tacky, while the base remains planted. This ensures each effective edge is kept in place under high cornering and braking loads, leading to reduced rolling resistance, and increased wear life. The “Ongold” Onset MT are wrapped in Vittoria Mazza 2.6 and 2.4 tires.
