Tour of Aotearoa Tyre Guide


The Tour of Aotearoa (TA) sees you encounter a wide variety of terrain. The ideal tyre is one that will handle most off-road conditions with confidence while having a low rolling resistance for those long-sealed road sections. In addition, the tyre must handle the load and be strong, hard wearing and trouble free.

No single tyre will be perfect in every condition – so choose a great all-round performer.

Vittoria’s performance off road tyres can be run tubeless or with tubes – giving you control.



This XC flagship tyre is a smart and popular choice. 4C graphene 2.0 compound resists everything you can throw at it and XC-Trail case has added side wall protection. The awesome wear quality see’s these tyres last the distance, handling the off-road sections with confidence yet still rolling fast on the sealed road sections. Available in 27.5” and 29” with sizes from 2.1” to 2.6” (2.25” is the most popular).


With a unique directional fish scale tread design, the Terreno 29” 2.25 is evolved from our cyclocross range and is perfect for TA. the Graphene 2.0 compound is fast rolling while providing great grip in all but the poorest trail conditions. It is a light 650g with our XC-race tan wall case. Also available in 700x38c.


If plus size tyres are your thing the Bomboloni 3” tyres are a great choice. Good rolling speed, great grip and great wear. Available in 27.5” and 29”.
