The Vittoria Syerra is the Choice of Aggressive Riders Where Backcountry Dependability comes in a Lightweight Package
The new Vittoria Syerra provides confidence and peace of mind on the technical XC course and pristine mountain pass alike. The Syerra's robust design allows for long days of all-mountain riding where a stable, comfortable and dependable platform is essential.
Diving into the Details:
Syerra's tread pattern shares design DNA with Vittoria's popular Agarro and Mazza profiles but reduces the weight and rolling resistance for snappier handling on climbs. The pronounced shoulders and defined side-channels provide toothy cornering and early engagement, holding off-camber lines with ease.
Generous spacing and strategic tread surface siping allows the Syerra to scramble up loose rock faces, shedding mud and debris on the subsequent rotation. Vittoria's proprietary step-ramp tread blocks maintain speed while retaining a category-defining tactile ridefeel when things get loose.
Syerra is designed to be used as a matched set, front and rear but also pairs well with other models. Utilizing a durable tubeless-ready casing, Syerra is supported with anti-pinch flat sidewall inserts. The end result is a robust quiver-killer that climbs as well as it descends.

I think these tires could work well under some circumstances but less than ideal in the pnw. I put some time on them in Moab and liked them on slick rock but they're not great on loose over hard and down right sketchy in the wet on rocks and roots. Not a confidence inspiring front either. They roll fast and seem to hold up okay but they don't work for my daily rides. Would not put on the front again either.
I ride barzas on my everyday funhardtail. Tried the syerras on my aggressive hardtail , nukeproof scout. They are slightly wider and noticably higher rolling resistance than the barzas . Syerras are better for trail grip than barzas. The syerras do well on urban also, but the barzas have lower rolling resistance. Because my order of mazzas was refunded due to unavailability, i have gotten a set of syerras for my every day fun hardtail for when the barzas wear out.
Using these tires on their intended purpose 130/120 trail bike but the feel too much on the XC side to be a true downcountry tire. Theres no doubting these roll real fast. But when you are going fast the tire should hold the line which these tires dont give much grip when pushed. Its almost immediate when you realized when you have lost grip but for a XC/Trail tire shouldn't be this way. Like this as a rear tire only but because Vittoria gave these awful red graphic treatment, it does not have the same brand design like their other tires. So they really are red-headed stepchilds no one wants.
Like previous reviewer said, it doesnï¿½t grip well. Several times i felt myself washing out in corners, and on rocks even smooth ones.. and i am not one to corner extremely fast. Coming off a bad fall i donï¿½t feel confident in these at all.. maybe they would work great on rail trails. But for the riding here in the northeast. Notï¿½
Was looking to change from Rekon and this looked to fit the bill. Like the extra casing strength in the sidewall. Not sure why they need to call it a Down Country tire and put obnoxious red labeling on it. Running it on the rear with a Mazza trail up front replicating the set up I had with Maxxis. Have mounted on Nobl hoop @ 30mm internal width.
