A tyre with maximum grip for wet and muddy conditions: aggressive tread with tall, widely-spaced, reinforced knobs sheds mud, carves wet bends.
The Gato was designed for maximum grip and control in wet and loose conditions. The larger volume version features the same aggressive tread pattern, but with size specific, tall, widely spaced, siped knobs that ensure excellent shedding characteristics and increased traction through a range of elements. Reinforcements at the base of the central ridge reduce rolling resistance while similar reinforcements on the side knobs ensures knob stiffness and penetration when cornering. The new Gato, despite its infancy, is a sure choice for adverse All Mountain applications.
Vittoria TNT (Tube–No Tube) tyres are up to 100g lighter than standard tubeless, yet have reinforced sidewalls with massive cut resistance. Run tubeless on UST rims with Pit Stop cartridge or liquid latex Pit Stop, TNT tyres offer better cornering, faster rolling, and fewer pinch flats, at lower pressure. Fitting is easy: TNT’s tyre bead locks readily into the rim and tire is inflated with a standard hand pump. Pit Stop cartridge contains only 35 g of foam, as effective as 50–60g of liquid latex, and is a reliable solution for tubeless running. TNT tyres can equally be used with an inner tube if the rider prefers, and are still light for a reinforced tyre.
