Versatile all-rounder: the Mezcal III folding tyre by Vittoria
The Vittoria Mezcal III tyre is the versatile all-rounder with which you can certainly get a place on the winner's podium. The Mezcal has a uniquely low tread pattern with narrow spacing in the centre for low rolling resistance and durability. A grippy side profile gives you grip on varied terrain, while the bevelled lugs provide traction on roots and rocks. The best tyres are made of the best casing and compound, and the Mezcal is no exception. With Vittoria's 4C rubber compound, which includes their proven Graphene 2.0, the Mezcal achieves the Holy Grail in XC tyres: grip, durability and light weight.

- Manufacturer Part Number:
The fundamental feature of graphene is that it changes the performance of the rubber, reinforcing the innovative characteristics of Vittoria tyres. In version 2.0, the compound depends on the tyre type and its requirements to improve the desired performance. For MTB tyres, this means that Graphene 2.0 improves grip in the wet. So with this rubber compound, you don't have to compromise when speed, grip, durability and wear resistance are required.
4 Compound (4C):
4 Compound is exclusively developed by Vittoria to create a tyre without compromise. Vittoria 4C consists of a coating process that combines the 4 different rubber compounds in one tread. Both the tread and sides consist of a base and surface layer. This makes it possible to place the graphene rubber compound exactly where it is needed, depending on the type of tyre. In addition, durability and puncture protection are improved as the robust base compound resists punctures.
Nylon is a solid and durable synthetic fibre traditionally used for robust tyre casings. The synthetic fibre can be very light, but is not as supple as Corespun. Regardless of the tpi number, each specification is applied to the respective price-performance scale. And they all deliver the essential elements of Vittoria: comfort, speed and good handling.
XC Trail TNT Casing:
This casing is designed to make tyres for Cross Country use more durable, more efficient and extra long lasting. At the same time, Vittoria's TNT construction offers ultimate puncture protection on the sidewalls because it has an extra protective layer in the wall of the tyre. The bead is made of aramid, which makes the tyre foldable - it also saves weight. XC Trail TNT Casing is slightly heavier, but much more robust than XC Race TLR Casing.
TNT - Tube/No-Tube:
These tyres do not have a butyl inner layer with additional sidewall protection, but a strong nylon fabric and abrasion resistant rubber compound. The bead is suitable for both standard and tubeless rims. Vittoria TNT (Tube/No-Tube) tyres are up to 100 g lighter than conventional tubeless tyres, despite reinforced sidewalls with massive cut resistance. Ride tubeless on UST rims with Pit Stop or liquid Latex Pit Stop. TNT tyres offer better cornering, roll faster and have fewer punctures, even at lower inflation pressures.
