If we all had our way, we'd have a stable full of tubular tires at our disposal for every ride, but the reality of our bank accounts and the hassles of puncturing mid-ride when your tire is glued to the rim mean that isn't exactly an option. Thankfully, tubeless technology has advanced to the point of giving tubular a hefty run for its money. Vittoria's Cross XL Pro TNT Clincher Tire borrows heavily from is Cross XL tubular counterpart to bring near-tubular ride quality to your favorite set of tubeless-ready rims.
The Cross XL Pro utilizes Vittoria's supple 120tpi TNT casing for a smooth, fast ride with sidewall protection and a tubeless-ready bead. The tread features widely spaced knobs purpose-built to shed mud and grip firmly when acceleration off the line, railing corners, and scrubbing speed into the barriers. While this tire is especially competent in muddy conditions, it's also versatile enough to serve as an all-around tire for use on any 'cross course.
