Barzo G2.0 XCR Tire
With the Barzo G2.0 XCR Tire from Vittoria, you can confidently tame technical cross country courses at speed. Using square profile knobs for durability and stability, the tire grips a variety of trail surfaces while keeping rolling resistance to a minimum. Its progressive sipe angles allow the tire to dig in even harder the further it's leaned over. It's simply a do-it-all tire that will have most of your trail condition bases covered as both a front and rear tire.
Tread matters for sure, however, it's only one ingredient that makes up a tire. Underneath those knobs is Vittoria's all-new XC-Race TLR casing made from nylon with 120 threads per inch. This is its lightest weight casing dropping grams over the XC-Trail version by forgoing the additional sidewall protection but gains cool brown sidewalls. Holding the tire onto the rim is a Tubeless-Ready, folding Aramid bead.
Vittoria owns the only extruder in the world that allows for 4 compounds in a single tread which it then fortifies with Graphene 2.0. This allows Vittoria to fine-tune the flex of the tread-base and tread-surface separately, placing the correct durometer Graphene 2.0 compound exactly where it is needed for maximum cornering, climbing, rolling, and braking performance. Additionally, durability and puncture protection is also improved, as the base compound resists punctures, and provides a more stable base for the tread.

Just a tire
- I've put it through the wringer
use this for front and rear with tubes on a fs bike. 30 psi front 35 rear. I ride east coast xc trails. conditions are constantly changing. this tire performs best on dry trails but throw in some acorns, oak leaves, moss, or deadfall twigs an no tire survives. after a wind storm pine cones covered the trails and the tires packed up with pine cone pieces and all grip was lost. the tire I've liked the most is the Stans Raven, it doesn't do well in mud and you lose some braking power but it grips well everywhere else. If you ride east coast rocks and roots and have a tire you like, let me know.

I feel you on this. It’s fast and grippy on dry trails (but what tire isn’t) but once you introduce some moisture it loses a lot of grip.
