End the resistance.

The AKA 29in tires are Vittoria’s high-performance XC race tire. The low-profile tread is directional to provide plenty of grip with very little rolling resistance, and wide spacing between the slim lugs sheds mud and loose dirt quickly to keep the tire functioning as efficiently as possible. Low-profile, aggressive corner lugs provide sharp predictable handling. It's also available in two sizes: a super-speedy two-inch width or a burlier, gripper 2.3-incher.

Tread, however, is only one part of the tire story. Almost as important is the casing underneath. Vittoria TNT (TubesNoTubes) casing is made from a 120 TPI cloth — quite supple by mountain bike standards. The sidewalls are reinforced with nylon in order to minimize cuts and folding when riding at low pressure in order to take full advantage of the tires' tubeless capabilities.

Ride Vittoria!

Best tires for my style of riding...Utah single track....great traction and durability, easy TL setup...made by a leader in the bicycle tire industry. What more can I ask for...

Great, awesome, fantastic!

Vittoria, need I say more?

The AKA has been my go-to since being introduced to the Saguaro...both are great tires for the type of riding I do (mostly XC) and where I do it (Park City/Sun Valey). These tires have great longevity, work well in dry to tacky conditions, and are awesome set up tubeless at around 20-22 psi. The TNT construction is burly enough to ward off sidewall damage but supple enough to aide with grippy traction while cornering...

Loving it so far!

I was hesitant at first to try these tires. I had no prior experience with Vittoria, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I had been running Continental Race Kings for a while, but I can say that these feel faster. I love the tread pattern, and they do great on most trail conditions, except really wet and rocky stuff. Pretty stiff bead on these, so setting them up took a little elbow grease, but now that they are up and running, I love them!

Great tire

Vittoria...say no more. The AKA is a great, dry trail tire...much like the Saguaro, it is predictable in corners, rolls fast and is durable. I run it TL at around 18-20psi on Enve 50/50 hoops and ride in the PC/SLC trail system and beyond (Sun Valley, etc).
