Early last month we brought you a first look at the newly rebranded Vittoria (ex Geax) Goma tyres. Rod’s been putting these to work, and just in time for the new year Vittoria NZ (CycleSport) have just landed two entirely new Vittoria XC / Trail models (‘cos we’re not all all-duro riders)

The ‘Barzo’-

$70.00 RRP. 27.5 or 29″ available in either 2.1 or 2.25, folding. Technical small-block tread layout has constant effective-edge centre and lean-dependent sipe angles. Counter V-formation channels ease the cleaning of mud, dirt, and debris, in-line with cornering forces.

Expert rider’s high-speed trail tyre
Great in wet or soft conditions
Fast rolling XC tyre


The ‘Peyote‘-

$70.00 RRP. 27.5 or 29″ available in either 2.1 or 2.25, folding. Low-profile, ramped leading edge knobs. 100% siping for tactile grip: every knob surface has a groove or dimple to increase tactile grip at the contact patch.

Symmetrical tread design with self cleaning channels
Great in hardpack or rocky conditions
Really fast and good for cornering

Hopefully we can get some test sets of these soon!
