Vittoria Terreno Mix G+ 2.0 road bike tire on a rolling resistance test machine

The Vittoria Terreno Mix G+ 2.0 is a CX/Gravel tire made for those riders that do not want to change their tires during the season. The Terreno Mix tread pattern is a near-continuous center ridge that provides lower rolling resistance on hard surfaces and a more open tread pattern near the edges to provide cornering grip even under mixed conditions.

Construction of the Terreno Mix is the same as the other members of the Vittoria Terreno line-up (Zero, Dry, Wet). The main difference is in the tread pattern, and possibly a slightly different variation of the G+ 2.0 compounds with the Terreno Mix and Terreno Wet tuned to provide more grip at the expense of speed.


Just like the Terreno Dry and Wet, the Mix is available in the 31-622, 33-622 for CX bikes and in the 40-622 size for gravel bikes.

Rolling Resistance
Real tire width in mm:
30-32 = 33 psi/2.3 bar
33-35 = 30 psi/2.1 bar
36-40 = 27 psi/1.9bar
Extra Low Air Pressure
33.4 Watts
CRR: 0.01001
The CX/Gravel section is a multi tire size section, air pressures have been adjusted to the measured casing width.

All numbers are for a single tire at a speed of 29 km/h / 18 mph and a load of 42.5 kg / 94 lbs.

Use the formula: RR (Watts) = CRR * speed (m/s) * load (N) to calculate rolling resistance at a given speed and load.

Conclusion


  • Vittoria Terreno Mix G+ 2.0
Performance compared to all other CX/Gravel tires
(100% is fastest - lightest - highest - strongest)

The Terreno Mix doesn't outshine any other tires in our performance-oriented tests, but for the mixed conditions tire it is, we can't find any reasons why you shouldn't buy it. If you do not want to change your tires during the seasons, you'll get decent performance with these tires in most conditions.


We've now tested Vittoria's entire Terreno CX/Gravel line-up, and we must say we like their view of CX/Gravel tires. They've covered a large range of conditions with just four tires. We think that's a better approach than releasing dozens of tires that have minimal differences between them.
