Smooth, supple, and speedy.

Tires, more than anything else, dictate how your bike interacts with Mother Earth, so it's important to choose the right ones. The goal is to achieve the highest amount of grip while maintaining the lowest amount of rolling resistance, all with a tread pattern and tire width that are best suited to the terrain you ride most often. Vittoria's Peyote TNT 29-inch tires nail this happy medium. They're light, fast, and they corner well, especially on hard and dry terrain, thanks to low-profile lugs and large corner knobs that afford gobs of grip in corners.

Tread doesn't tell the whole story, though — the casing underneath is almost as important. Vittoria TNT casing is made from a cloth with 120 TPI, which makes it significantly more supple than burlier DH-style tires for increased grip and feel that maintains plenty of strength. The sidewalls are also reinforced with nylon in order to minimize cuts and pinch flats, even if you're running tubeless. The Peyote TNT is equipped to be ridden with tubes or without, as you prefer.

Love these tires

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was always a Schwable fan until I moved the Brevard, NC area. We have everything here from awesome technical downhills to fast flowing Singletracks. After two tire failures I searched out a new tire for the area. Although most are riding Maxxis here I went with a buddies recommendation to try the Peyote TNT (29x2.25). These tires perform perfectly in the wide range of trails I ride. My only issue is they are soft so they wear out faster than what I was use to. I ride nearly 60 miles of single track a week and had to replace the rear tire at about 3 months. But for the performance and half the price of the Maxxis I will consider the fast wear as a cost of doing business. My only compliment it the grey sidewall. I'd like to see a option for a black sidewall. I'll see you at the top of Laurel Mountain...

Overall decent

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used these tires on my. Downhill hardtail mountian bike. These tires are pretty decent for the price, compared to others and overall nice in general. I literally put these tires through hell. They've been through downhill, rain, mud, sand, water, jumps, abuse, rocks, etc.
Pros and cons
Good traction
Good tire pattern
Grips the trails
Great in mud

Bad for street riding (i dont go offten to the trails)
Wears down quite quickly
Tire knobs could be bigger.

Those where a few pros and cons I experienced.
You experience may vary.

Solid, Fast Tread Pattern

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm currently running these tires in 2.25 in front and rear on a hardtail. The tires are relatively light and have been performing well so far, but likely as we get more into the season and the trails become more washed out (in Utah) I'll switch to a front tire with a little bit more bite. That being said, I'm really liking the tire as a rear and would recommend it for any sort of XC/Trail application. I'd probably save the front for only XC, unless you live somewhere with nice grippy conditions year on the regular.

Sedona Snow

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this as a back tie for a trip to AZ. Hit a few different trails, including Sedona with some snow, slush, and lots of mud on the ground. Great traction even in wet rocks and dry gravel. The tread wears a little quickly, but nothing to be offset by.
