Why We Like The Grifo 33 Cross Tire

Cyclocross tires need to accommodate a wide range of conditions from pavement to pure mud, and in a single race the tread pattern has to be especially capable, but that's why we're turning to the Grifo 33 Cross Tire. It delivers that capability and then some. Ultimately, it all comes down to the tread pattern. At first glance, it appears low in profile. It doesn't require the extra weight of bulky, tall knobs, but instead provides ample grip in terrible conditions while minimizing the associated rolling-resistance over harder stuff. Regardless of if the tread orientation is facing backward or forward, we're rolling fast.

  • A tried and true tread pattern that's perfect for racing and training
  • Evident knob shape provides good grip in less than ideal conditions
  • Highly puncture-resistant and lightweight Super Poly casing
  • Open tubular design for lightweight, compact strength
  • Fast rolling in all conditions regardless of orientation

Loves the mud!

This tyre was overadvertised last year. However, the hype is real! This tyre is a new cyclocross classic. I just keep using it year after year! It can not be killed! I just put a bit of tyre sealent at the beginning of the season to keep it fresh. However, the tread keeps looking new and fresh race after race! I abused the tyre and it keeps loving me back.

Great tires, short lifespan

I've put it through the wringer

Over the last few years, I have owned a few sets of these and have ridden them a lot on multiple bikes. As a high, performance, race-day type tires, these are ideal. As a trainer/gravel grinder, they are great, but not terribly practical. The casing (300tpi) is easily the most supple I've ever ridden with tubes. Now, the down sides - they are not inexpensive, they cannot run tubeless, they are awful to mount the first time (they stretch out and are fine later), and they don't last very long (the tread can separate from the casing and may need to be re-glued). All in all, though, I love them. If they were made to be more durable, they probably wouldn't have the same ride quality.


Can these be mounted tubeless?

Absolutely not, and get your tire levers ready, because these things are a BEAR to mount! Once you get them on, they are pretty sweet!
