The word Mezcal originally comes from the Aztec word meaning "oven-cooked agave." Though oven-cooked agave sounds great, the only thing you'll be cooking with Vittoria's Mezcal is your competition. With its low center tread and densely spaced knob configuration, the Mezcal is deliberately designed for speed. This doesn't just mean raw speed on a nose-tugging descent, but also billy goat-like ascending and jet-like cornering. Aside from its specific tread design, much of the Mezcal's talents are to be attributed to its G+ Isotech Compound. G+Isotech®* is Vittoria's unique Graphene compound that is gifted with speed (lower rolling resistance), grip, durability and wear resistance.

This is not a negative review, but the reason I'm posting is to highlight some shortcomings of this tire. Some reviews i read prior to purchase billed this as a superlight tire fast and grippy tire that, due to the new compound, was tougher than your average XC tire and could stand up to trail use. Its a good fast grippy tire for sure, but it has not stood up to my rocky home trails well at all. Multiple punctures and the sidewalls are showing threads. I have the 2.25s mounted on i9 enduro rims, and the sides of the tires stick out further than the tread, so they get scraped up easily and are not made for any kind of rocky or technical terrain. If you race xc, i highly recommend, but otherwise look eleswhere. For reference, i have also used a Maxxis Ignitor and Maxxis Ardent over the same time period and had none of the puncturing or sidewall issues. Also ran a Scwalbe Hans Dampf for awhile and had some wear and puncture issues, but nothing like the Mezcal. Grippy and fast for and XC tire, but dont be fooled that its anything else.
