    Ride to hell or glory.

    'Cross is fun because it's unpredictable, messy, and chaotic, but you don't want to make it even tougher than it has to be by rolling on the wrong tires; too slick and you'll end up on your teakettle, too knobby and you'll feel like you're pulling a trailer behind you. Vittoria nails the perfect balance with the Cross XC Pro TNT Clincher Tire, which employs an Aramid Racing 3D rubber compound to keep you rubber-side down without adding so much resistance that you'll think you're pedaling through a sandbox. You can run it tubeless if you prefer, courtesy of Vittoria's Aramid Tubeless Talon bean (TNT tires feature 120 threads per inch, so you'll sacrifice a little bit of suppleness of the 150 TPI non-tubeless option), and the clincher design makes the Cross XG affordable and easy to maintain.

    A Newbie

      Never went tubeless before this. Since I had Stan's No Tube rims... why not? These went on well, because I viewed the video provided... no problem. My first ride on these tires was a muddy Cyclocross Race, and these tires kept me upright and passing people. The lost tire weight gave me better sprints turn to turn. Sorry, I can't compare to any other tire (New to tubeless), but install wasn't anything like the reviews. Oh, I used some heavy duty Pedro's Irons. I used Stan's Tape, and no compressor needed. Well, I prayed the install would go well... It Did... Thank God.

      Great price for a great tire!

      I had no trouble mounting the tires as a tubeless set on Stans Valor Carbon wheels using two tire levers and working my way around the rim. They fit snug to the rim and popped into place, which gives me comfort in knowing I won't roll a bead. Each wheel took about 5 minutes to mount, inject Stans sealant, and inflate with my air compressor. Once mounted, they sealed quickly and I have had no leaking after several weeks of riding.
      I like the traction the tires provide in various conditions including hardpack, loose dirt, and rocky terrain.

      Easier to mount than others experience.

        I read the other reviews so I was dreading receiving the tires and trying to mount them. However I mounted them with tubes and it took no extraordinary effort. They mounted straight and popped onto the rim at about 80 psi. Looking forward to taking them out for a ride this weekend.

        Easy to mount for me

        I really like these tires so far. I got them to make sure I had a UCI race legal option (most 33 mm tires measure 34 on the wide rims of today).

        I mounted mine tubeless on Shimano Ultegra wheels. They required some real effort to get on, but once on they popped right in place with the compressor and held air without any sealant.

        They ride well a bit below 30 psi (I weigh 160ish pounds). They have excellent traction in grass and dirt and I was surprised at their traction traversing hill sides. Very impressive. They roll relatively well too. I have not tested them in truly deep mud, but would probably reach for something knobbier.

        I did try mounting them on a wider rim with mediocre tape and it was a less pleasant experience. So that might be a big issue for some, with how wide OEM rims are these days.

        Great in Dry +the key to mount

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I prefer the XL Pro over the XG, but these are a great way to get UCI legal (order the 31mm) tires for a good price. These are a great all around tire that rolls well on grass and hard pack.

        Some may complain of the mounting being difficult, I find that to be a huge plus, tires stretch out as time goes on rendering once bombproof tubeless setup into a burping nightmare later in the season. Not so with the XG Pro, yes they are super tight mounting (there is a trick, read on) but that tension helps to hold the bead in ultra low pressure race scenarios.

        At one point I torture tested them at 12PSI (I weigh 145lbs, tires were mounted on Stans-Iron Cross rims), the tire was a noodle that low of course, however it did not burp, quite the opposite. I could get the tire to roll off the rim, but the bead still stays seated. In a race scenario this has proven invaluable, running 20psi and being confident you're not going to burp around a corner is priceless.

        Now the trick to mounting is a mix of using a good tire lever, proper bead placement, and using your knees on the last part of the bead.
        Use a good wide tire iron, (like pedros) to get the first bead on, make sure that the bead is seated in the center of the rim, where there is a sunken channel (effectively reducing the diameter of the rim by a few mm). If you struggle with getting the last part of the bead over the rim, again go through and make sure the bead is seated in that channel to give the bead more slack to work with then use the tire iron to pry the bead over the edge. Now mount the other side of the bead onto the rim, again the hard part is going to be getting the last bit of it over the lip of the rim. Make sure to check that the mounted part of the bead is seated in that channel, and you should end up with a 10"-12" section of remaining bead that is hard to mount.

        Sitting in a chair, one end of that 12" section with your knees tight to the rim (this keeps it from walking as you work on the other side of the section). Use a sturdy tire iron to pry the remaining bead on one small part at a time. wedge the tire iron under the bead and rim, hooking the iron on the rim and prying it up over (this is where I have broken a weaker tire iron in the past). Once that section is on move 2"-3" closer to your knees and repeat the process until you get the last section on.

        more than you bargained for?

        Like Brian W. I have never shirked from a tough tire mount but no dice. I think the main reason they are on sale is that only a handful of people have managed to mount them onto rims, and then after the first hour of struggling to stretch the bead on you have to start wondering to yourself about whether you would want to confront a flat while out and about. Good reviews from those that have finally succeeded in mounting them.

        Fantastic Tires!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Like Brian W. said...... they are harder and normal to install. With a good set of tire levers they install with no problems. Because they fit tight, doing a tubeless setup in super simple. My crappy track pump was able to set the bead with absolutely no sealant. I actually ran no sealant for the first couple days and never had any issues with tire pressure (yes.... I now have sealant installed..... cross is coming!).

        No go!

          On sale for $18, I couldn't pass up the deal. Fought to put these on for 2 hours at home with no luck. Tried every trick in the book and I'm always up for the challenge of a difficult tire. Some are hard to get on but not imposible. This one got me. I took it to my buddy at the local bike shop. Even with all the tools and tricks and experienced staff this tire was a pain to set. Finally after an hour of him working them on, we got it.

          To much of a pain, I'm going to with a different tire.
