Vittoria Cross XG Pro Tire - Clincher $61.99
Dirt, mud, pavement—you’re ready.
Bring on the dirt and mud--there isn’t much the Vittoria Cross XG Pro Tire can’t handle. The PRB 2.0 puncture-resistant belting wards off pesky flats, while the foldable bead and nylon 150 TPI casing offer a supple ride with top-notch performance.
- Widely spaced knobs shed mud and reduce rolling resistance
- Foldable bead shaves grams
- Recommended 60-90 PSI (4-6 bar)
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought these because you can run them tubeless according to vittora's website.
Used the stan's cyclocross kit and was good to go.
C02 is necessary and they take a while to seal up. Hopefully vitorria will come out with a tighter bead. But they work for now and I'm happy with them.
whats better the 700x32 or the 700x34 whats...
whats better the 700x32 or the 700x34 whats the difference what do u recommend..
This measurement is the width of the tire (incase you didn't know). And while there's not THAT much difference between 32 and 34mm, the choice can make a noticeable difference in how your bike feels.
The wider 34s can take slightly lower pressure maybe giving them a little more cushion over rough terrain. They may have a little more traction in stopping and climbing steep hills. But the 34's will not necessarily have better cornering traction. Wider tires can "walk" or roll when they are on narrow rims. Plus the cornering traction of a tire like this is mainly dependent on its side knobs.
If you have wider beefy cyclocross-specific wheels/rims go ahead and get the 34's.
Or if you expect ride in very dry conditions the wider 34's might be better (wider tires seem to do better in dusty, sandy, dry terrain).
Otherwise the 32's are lighter and will probably feel more stable more often in the corners.
If you are racing Cyclocross technically 34mm is wider than regulations allow.... but no one cares and many people run them anyway :-D

Tires ride really well on all types of terrain. No problems so far.
Great traction - tough bead
I have enjoyed the additional traction (and more forgiving ride) of these tires; however, I've had major difficulty installing on my Easton Vista wheelset. Punctured 3 tubes, broke 1 lever. Purchased a tire bead jack and I've now won the battle. I also have the Cross XN for commuting -love them more.
Can these be run tubeless?

They should work in most tubeless setups.

These tires are great. I use these as my CX training tires, and their big brother tubulars as my race tires. The tread pattern is a great all arounder and is very similar to the Clement Grifo pattern, but these have bigger and better cornering knobs. Very predictable tires. I will continue to buy these in the future.
