The Mezcal has been updated with a clean new design. It now features a well-defined center ridge, reliable side knobs, and a fast rolling tread. The low profile, densely spaced knob configuration makes for great climbing and breaking edges that still roll exceedingly fast.
Multiple edges provide optimal braking and climbing potential
Multi surface use rolls fast and reliably in a variety of conditions
Dependable side knobs provide confidence in soft corners
Pound for lb best tire ive ridden the last 20 + years
Pound for lb this is the best tire I've ridden, not that I've ridden all. Been on MAx dhf which i love deciced to try these based on reviews in that they are tough and really light. I knocked off a pound very noticeable. Being dry in summer so far they corner as well as dhf,suprisingly they are rock solid in loose dirt all the way down to hard pack. Not quite as good in the gravely stuff as the dhf. I look forward to riding when it gets wet here in the Pacific NW Couldnt b happier in the moist loam with the dhf as they are unstoppable Very fast rolling so the they dont brake as well as dhf, or keep there straight line ability as well.Brakin while cornering there excellent pedaling up hills is where the fast rolling really comes in very impressive.Havnt ridden any rock gardens yet,i predict they will do well. . Not qite as well cilmbing when it gets real loose but comparable Still searching for the boundaries as I've discvered in the dhf in dry conditions.very sens.to preasure, so far i like about 22 or 3 in front and 20 21 back. Not in the same class as dhf but they're holding there own.
Mezcal III TNT G+ 27.5 x 2.35 installed on SantaCruz Bronson, primarily ridden in Colorado Rockies, Moab, Fruita.
Following a season of riding, these tires performed very well.
+ Excellent traction on wide terrain surfaces- slickrock, rocky trails, sandy or loose soil.
+ Rolling resistance feels to be better on these than the Vittoria Gomas I had before.
+ Superb durability, no flats or air loss to date. There were times I nailed sharp rocks and the like on the thinking I was going to get a flat. There sidewall and treads show dings and scrapes but so far no pinch flats, no sidewall leaks, nada. Even with Stans, the original Mavic tires that came with the rims got flats what seemed like every ride...
