Vittoria Cross XM Pro II Tire - Clincher $54.95
Better than you expect.
Leave it to the Italians to design a cross tire that even the pros will drop to their knees and give homage to. The Cross XM Pro Tire is a mud-barreling, pavement-gripping piece of art that parts loose surfaces like a robed man of God. Widely spaced knobs allow optimum mud shedding while providing unparalleled grip during acceleration, braking and cornering. Vittoria's new tread pattern and PRB 2.0 protection belt ensure the Cross Clinchers deliver incredibly low rolling resistance, superlative comfort and stability, as well as all around grip that will help you pedal through the chop past your arch rival.
- 150 TPI is a cross-specific balanced weight-to-flexibility tread-per-inch ratio with low rolling resistance and great value
- PRB (Puncture Resistant Belting) improves chances of preventing flats
What community has to say
too soft of rubber for the road

i guess i will say the good first these tires are light . they hold the pressure stated with out blow out. i keep mine at 85 to 90 psi which i check every two days. I had put these though 675 miles since i got them for on road use only. i got these for winter tires hopping they would work. these tire do roll good when you going straigt but when you turn you can feel them slow you down a little. i have not had a single flat or blow out and i do not use any type of flat gaurd in my rims or tires. Now the bad after these mile on the road with keeping the psi up the center of the tire is already worn out and bald on front and rear with riding on the road on all 675 miles or so. i guess these tires are only meant for the sand or mud like stated in the discreption. keep in mind i only ride the road and that is what my review is based off. now if they are used for the mud or sand these might have lasted longer? i just know i will not be buying these again at the price i paid for them.i got these for winter tires for when it snowed but they are too worn out already getting the marthon with the spike for that now
Nice low-profile cross tire

I was a little worried this wouldn't grip well in the mud-snow mix we had at the race last weekend, but it did quite well on everything from mud to grass to sand. I mounted them on a set of Velocity Dyad rims, which spread the tread out a bit more and offered a really nice ride.
