The XC racing tire for dry conditions + mixed terrain

Fast rolling, aggressive cornering, and a lightweight construction – this is the tire for XC courses that mix hardpack with root lattices and the occasional rocky stretch. The Mezcal XC Race is engineered for pure XC speed, and its pedigree is proven with multiple UCI World Championships and XCO European Championships.

The continuous center line maintains fast-rolling contact, and its offset extensions are siped to multiply the number of leading and trailing edges, propelling you up the trail on climbs and increasing bite while braking. The rear siping on the shoulder knobs runs parallel to the trail with variable widths and open trailing edges, so the Mezcal corners fast on hard, slippery surfaces – despite being such a fast-rolling tire. For climbing, cornering, or careening down hill, no tire cooks like the Mezcal.

01

Graphene 4C Compound

Rubber, infused with Graphene in a graduated schedule of four compounds across the rolling strip and shoulders. Two stabilizing base compounds boost puncture resistance and create a foundation for climbing, braking, and cornering loads. The trail-side compounds reduce rolling resistance, boost traction, and get tacky on switchbacks and off-camber sections, wet or dry. 

02

XC-Race TLR 120-Tpi Casing

The lightest casing for XC racing, pairing a durable, supple 120-TPI nylon construction with tubeless-ready, World Champs-proven Aramid beads. The XC-Race TLR spins up fast, shrugs off punishment, and mutes chatter without muddying responsiveness – speed and trail feel without vulnerability.

These tires fly on the trails and crushed rock - perfect if you race cross country. The side walls are stiff enough to resist cutting in the rocks but soft enough to feel like added suspension on the trail.
