Built for speed and efficiency over hard packed and mixed surfaces comes the new Mezcal III G2. 0 XCR Tire from Vittoria. Featuring a densely packed and low profile knob configuration, the Mezcal is easier to get up to speed and its alternating center-ridge tread keeps the rolling resistance low. Thankfully, all that free speed doesn't come with a loss of grip as its numerous effective edges bite hard for impressive cornering, braking, and climbing traction. This particular tire is built using Vittoria's lightest XC Race Tubeless-Ready 120TPI nylon casing for lightweight performance and dependability and with a folding aramid bead. It does forgo the additional sidewall protection found on the XC Trail casing, however, it sheds 20-45 grams depending on the size and comes with really neat brown sidewalls. Vittoria owns the only extruder in the world that allows for 4 compounds in a single tread which it then fortifies with Graphene 2. 0. This allows Vittoria to fine-tune the flex of the tread-base and tread-surface separately, placing the correct durometer Graphene 2. 0 compound exactly where it is needed for maximum cornering, climbing, rolling, and braking performance. Additionally, durability and puncture protection is also improved, as the base compound resists punctures, and provides a more stable base for the tread.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
