Most of us aren't professional mountain bike racers, and, while it would be nice to have a wheelset for every type of weather and terrain, it just isn't realistic without some very serious sponsorships. This is where the all mountain tire shines. The Vittoria Goma Tire is designed to tackle every type of terrain in wet, dry, muddy, or sandy conditions. And, while it may not be the absolute best tire for each and every possible condition, it's nice to know that your bike is set up to handle any type of trail you may encounter along the ride.The Goma's tread pulls out all the stops for an all mountain tire. A super sticky compound is formed into large, aggressive knobs that are siped and stepped for excellent mud shedding and true high speed tracking over both mild and highly technical terrain. Cornering is superb and progressive. Rolling resistance is low. Braking is right now.
