 An excellent all around tire, I run the barromarathon as my rear, replacing with a brand new every month or so. Grip is fantastic, except on slippy rock... but in my experience, NO tire is great on slippery limestone.

 Got these on order dude.
Currently using the Gato,and if this is as good as them,I have got a bargain.
The tread design though,does look more suited to the terrain I ride.
People don't realise there are great tyres outside the big three of Maxxis,Schwalbe and Conti's

 Put the Barro Mountain on and it exceeded expectations.
The Gato is a great tyre,but it's big brother just felt more confidence inspiring on the loose over hard downhills.
Rolling resistance was very adequate,but not as fast the Gato.
Not enough to merit saying it's draggy though,you just feel the bite more.
That's a good thing on my kind of terrain,where loose over hard is the norm.
Great price,great quality and have upped my game by a good way.

vittoria Barro Mountain (MSRP $45) — The Barro Mountain is a cutting-edge multi-purpose tire with an aggressive, moderately spaced pattern that handles the toughest terrains without increasing rolling resistance. Plateau-like, rounded knobs create a stiff tread that sheds dirt and debris easily, rolling over everything it finds…dry or wet soil, rocks and even roots. When the terrain gets demanding, the versatility of the Barro Mountain will keep you moving.
