Vittoria Syerra Details:

Vittoria’s Syerra is the choice of aggressive riders who seek backcountry performance and dependability, in a sensibly lightweight package that punches well above its weight. Designed for the most demanding XC courses, as well as for all-day adventures, climbing over mountain passes, and descending technical terrain, the Syerra is Vittoria’s best match for the increasingly popular Down-Country mountain bike segment.

Because of its increased robustness, the Syerra allows riding technical and demanding XC trails with more confidence, fun and peace of mind. Because of the increased comfort it delivers, the Syerra is also a solid choice for light Trail use and long mountain rides. Syerra’s tread profile shares design-DNA of both Agarro and Mazza, but with reduced weight and improved rolling performance. The pronounced shoulders and a defined side-channel provide assured cornering bite and early engagement, allowing the progressive sipe-width to hold off-camber lines with ease.

Generous spacing combines with strategically placed tread surface siping, allowing the Syerra to scramble up loose rock faces, and self-clean on the next revolution. These sipes are built into Vittoria’s step-ramp tread blocks, allowing the tire to maintain speed, while still providing a sharp effective edge for climbing and braking.

By using a durable Tubeless Ready casing, supported with Anti Pinch Flat APF sidewall inserts, the Syerra is much more robust and durable than the classic XC tire you are used to with little effect on weight.
The end result is a quiver-killer tire, that climbs as well as it descends.

 My last two sets of tires were GEAX, but I believe now, all of Vittoria's product is under Vittoria name, but they have held up amazingly well, and I have a fresh set sitting here, ready for when the current set finally wears outSmile

 I'm pretty impressed that you still have functioning Geax tires since that name went away in like 2015 or something like that.

 @PAmtbiker: Put a pair of Geax Barro Mountain Race on late in 2014 season, got 2586 miles out of them. Put a pair of Geax Saguaro's on beginning of 2017 season, I'm not even sure I believe they've gone this far, but they're still on the bike, and current total is around 4000 miles. I have a new set here, but I'm in no hurry to swap then out, curious to see how much further they'll goSmile

All three sets came from One One/Planet X over a year or two span @ stupid good pricing. My only regret is not buying more of them, cuzz 26" is getting hard to find and the pricing on ALL sizes of new MTB tires is IMO, f'ing ridiculous.....

 @GT-CORRADO: I also had some of those Barro Mountain and they lasted forever, but remained grippy

 @minesatusker: Were they Barro Mountain, or Barro Mountain RACE?? slightly different tread pattern and compound between the two. But so far, they've all served me well.

 850g for a tyre + 165g for an insert = 1015g a wheel, that's quite some heft for a down-country set up, or am I confusing it with up-country?
  • 6 0
 Wouldnt Upcountry be a less capable XC Bike? Maybe a Lux or something like that.
  • 1 0
 on a proper rooty rocky loop i am pretty sure it will be more efficient than without the inserts.
  • 2 2
 If they ditched the tire insert/pinch guard protection they integrate into the tire, it would probably save close to 100grams. Makes zero sense to have them if you are running a foam tire insert that provide same pinch flat protection plus rim protection.

 Those tires aren't downcountry enough.
  • 4 2
 So with the insert you have a xc-trailduro set up? I am not a gravity hound but I just don"t get the whole insert game. The brutes who smash rims and tear up tires sure but for most riders just buy the proper tire for your bike, weight and riding type....

 I've run inserts but don't always....they absolutely allow lower pressure - pros and cons to that. When I chatted up Felix Burke at BCBR in 2019 he was running like 18/19 psi w/inserts which would be 21+ without....it was wet and slippery, I think it was a big advantage.

Ideal setups IMO for a aggressive XC bike, say BCBR or ripping around Squamish, Whistler, Moab, etc. would be something like a Syerra in back, rear cushcore XC, front Agarro w/o insert....

 I started running inserts (CushCore XC) on my XC full suspension this summer and I love it! They don't just protect your tires and rims, it's like I've added an extra 5 to 10 mm of suspension. And being able to ride with lower tire pressure increases tire traction. So for me, it's all positive.

 @RadBartTaylor: An arrow I won't put in my quiver I guess. I find things get squirmy before I pinch flat or ding rims. I am a brute and run 22-3 rear, 21-2 front which I think is pretty low for my 200lb frame. I guess I am just too slow for it to be an issues or all my formative years on hardtails keep me light on rear wheel.
  • 1 0
 @pink505: well you are in good company since guys like Jack Moir and Sam Hill have not run inserts in the past, so there is that. I agree though, I like the way a bike feels with more PSI, I'm 190 and am up in the 24/27 PSI range when racing rocky enduro's, but can get down into that low 20's like you and be comfortable....
  • 3 0
 They can be really helpful for certain setups. For instance if you want a fast rolling rear tyre which still has good flat resistance. Most brands dont make fast rolling tyres with tough casings. Or if you ride a hardtail and want to run a soft, cushy rear tyre without dinging your rims all the time.
  • 1 0
 @Ttimer: very well put, if you want a fast and forgiving hardtail running big inserts like the vittoria airline and a fast rolling and ok gripping tire is the way to go. On my FS i just run 2 ply supersoft tires as most 1 ply tires dont come in supersoft and rollingspeed is not the number one priority on the freeduro.

 I think I'd puncture those tyres in about 30s, so I'll leave them to someone with more skill...

 I hear they're changing the name to Vytorya soon.

 OK I hope they can work on my Sniper, because there is no Syerra in Mainland China

 I feel like they completely missed the mark on what a downcountry tyre is. Entered!

 Are these for sale yet IRL? Would like to get one to replace a Barzo..
  • 1 1
 Currently have Barzos on my hardtail, scariest tires I have ridden in my entire life, also the only XC tires I've had on one of my own bikes.
These Syerra (god that awful spelling *puke*) tires look like they would do much better for me, as tires with no shoulder lugs make me piss my pants in fear when riding.

 Oh look, a Morsa with transition knobbles.
  • 1 0
 I know it looks that way, but they definitely are not. I have a set (sent to me for podcast) and they are definitely more XC than the Morsa.
