    Vittoria Cross XC Pro

    Does anyone have any feedback on this tire? It looks like it may be reasonably aggressive and do well in mud. I am planning to race a few cross races this year for the first time so any input is appreciated. Thanks.

    Looks like a knockoff of the very popular Challenge Grifo.

    It's going to be better than a slick tire or most OEMs. Probably not too different, one way or the other, from other $50-$60 cyclocross knobbies. Except that you're getting the pair for that price.

    I like the Evo XGs - looking forward for the TNT version to run tubeless since the non-TNT one leaks through the sidewall. Decently aggressive, great for grass.

    Looks like a decent tire, the old silver rubbered versions were crap in the wet. I will say, the Michelin Mud is pretty much the gold standard for sloppy condition clinchers, so much so people have FMB glue that tread onto tubulars. They also measure out to a 33, 3mm bigger than the 30 listed size
