Vittoria Evo XM Cyclocross Tubular Tire 290 tpiCyclocross Magazine paid off a paparazzo (with just a free subscription) to capture a spy quick photo of the very first Vittoria Evo XM Tubulars, a new, aggressive-treaded model to join Vittoria’s existing XG and XN tires. Although we do not know what XM officially stands for, the “M” may as well stand for “Mud” as the new model features taller, larger knobs, and looks to match up well with the popular Dugast Rhino tire.

The XM model will be available with the company’s Corespun K 290 TPI casing, which is a polycotton mix combined with Kevlar, and will feature a black side wall and a puncture-resistant latex tube. It is expected to be available shortly after Interbike.
