Ask for a Bombolino in Italy and you will be handed a delicious fried dough pastry. Vittoria decided to make something equally sweet for your fat tired rig. Vittoria brought automotive snow tire technologies into the bicycle realm with their Bomboloni. The square-step ramps along with square edged knobs will let it bite into the loose and unknown terrain a fat tired rig hungers for while still retaining a low rolling resistance. Additional grip is provided by the sipes that are cut in at alternating angles. Crawl over rocks, roots and donut shop street signs with confidence.
Tires came stock on a Niner ROS 9 Plus. Tire casing had a HORRIBLE wobble in both tires. Remounted on a different wheelset and the wobble persisted. Both wheelsets are true and fully seated. On top of that, first day out riding my wobbly Bombolinis, the bead tears not even an hour into my ride. There goes $120.
I have a warranty claim open with Vitorria.
That being said, they were super grippy and a ton of fun despite the casting wobble and torn bead. So 2 stars instead of one.
Put this 29+ tire on my Trek Fuel 29 and it fit in the existing fork no problem on my 30mm internal/35mm external width rim. Ended up Running it at 12psi. It is a very fast rolling tire, you almost don't even notice the weight. Definitely gives good rollover.Cornering traction is good, but definitely not as good as a beefier tire like a Minnion.
I bought this tire in an effort to reduce the self-steer effect I was getting from a Maxxis Chronicle. The Maxxis is a great tire off road, but on pavement the self-steer made riding no-hands a bit unpredictable. The Vittoria is still very good off road, but self-steers less on pavement. Kind of an expensive experiment, but I'm happy with the result.
