The Choice Of Champions For A Combination Of Terrains
The Vittoria Mezcal III G2.0 Gravel Tire is a versatile all-rounder that gets you to the podium, time after time.
Ride a combination of terrain? This is the choice of the pros.
The Mezcal features a unique low-profile tread that is tightly spaced in the center, for low rolling resistance and durability.
Countless effective edges work together to grip on a variety of terrain, while directional siping on each knob make traction in the roots and rocks.
The best tires are built with the best casing and compound, and the Mezcal is no exception. Using the proprietary Graphene enhanced 4C compound, the Mezcal attains the holy grail of gravel tires; grip, durability, and low weight.

The tire *could* be fantastic. Great tread, fast rolling and just enough traction for light-duty gravel and single track. The tire measures 35mm so it's dead-on there, but it's a low volume 35mm. Compared to the Donnelly MXP, which is typically my go-to tire for mixed terrain and CX races, this tire looks anemic. The MXP is just a larger volume tire without much additional width (maybe 1-2mm). That extra volume is pretty important to me since I'll often jump on some rocky single track for CX training (or just because it's fun). I won't try that with these tires.
I found myself riding more gravel than pavement on my new touring bike, so I swapped the slicks it came with for these. These are grippy in light to moderate gravel, and don't squirm on pavement, and roll smooth and fast. For rough terrain, I run 650b x 47 knobbies, but for all else, I use these. Not too expensive, either. No complaints.
