CX season tire test
Here's the new Vittoria Cross XG Pro CX tire. It's a narrow 32c. We just got these in and after a quick call to our rep Doug and Gast down at LBC I mounted them up and headed out to try them out.
Gast recommended 45 psi which is where I started out at. According to him I needed to run more pressure since I'm 60 pounds heavier. By my calcualations that puts him at 125lbs. We better watch out, Gast must be fitter than ever. He might smokin' fast this season.
Anyway, 45psi worked really well. I did hit root to rim once, but no pinch flat. They never felt like they were going to roll in the corners either. The tires hook really well on dirt and dry grass. I rode them at Standing Bear and then over to Tranquility. They offer a couple other styles as well for various conditions.
