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

The Vittoria Terreno Wet G+ 2.0 is the grippiest member of Vittoria's Terreno CX/Gravel tire line-up. The Terreno Wet comes with a widely spaced tread pattern that should clear mud and subsequently offer the grip you need in wet conditions.

Just like the other members of the Terreno CX/Gravel line-up, the Terreno Wet comes with a tubeless-ready 120 TPI casing with reinforced sidewalls and Vittoria's G+ 2.0 compound. Although Vittoria doesn't mention any differences regarding the G+ 2.0 compounds, we're quite sure the Terreno G+ 2.0 comes with a version of the compound that is more optimized towards grip at the expense of speed.


The Terreno Wet is available in the 31-622, 33-622, and 38-622 sizes. We've tested the 33-622 size as it was the only size that was available when we tested this tire.

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

The Terreno Wet isn't a fast CX/Gravel tire. It ends up near the bottom of the CX/Gravel overview when ordered by rolling resistance. When we look at other aspects of this tire like knob height or puncture resistance, other tires are available that offer a lower rolling resistance at the same or better knob height or puncture resistance.


Depending on the conditions you ride in, the Terreno Wet might be excellent on the front with a Terreno Dry (read our review) or Terreno Mix (read our review) on the rear as rolling resistance is less important on the front wheel. If you're willing to change your tires every six months, the Terreno Wet might be good for winter use with the Terreno Dry for summer use.
