Has anyone used the Vittoria Terrenno Dry or Hutchinson Override? I'm interested in knowing if they perform like a slick tire on pavement, while providing sufficient utility on gravel.

As the threat of rain was impending on the Dirty Kanza, I asked my shop to order a set of Terreno Mixed in the 40 width.  Unfortunately all they shipped was the wet Terreno.  Well we mounted them dry and the first time I rode them was an extremely dry DK!  They were flawless at 36psi.  No I cannot answer your question but I ordered the dry set for my other wheelset.  I'll post when I get them mounted and ridden on the pavement.  So far, I've been impressed!

I've got a few hundred miles on the Hutchinson Override 38s now and I'm surprised I'm not seeing any praise for these tires.  They roll fast on the firm stuff and on paved roads, they handle well in loose gravel and this past week, I even learned that they do quite well in sand and mud.  I'm impressed.  

I've tried all the WTB tires and Challenge and Clement and others (various sizes on various wheels).  These are as good or better than any and seem to have nice, but a bit more stout sidewalls for their lightness.

Nice tires!

I went ahead and ordered the 700x38 Hutchinson Override, I selected the 127 tpi version.

I'll post a repot in a few weeks.

No experience with that tire, but thanks for putting it on my radar. Adding it to the Tire Finder now.

Just got a pair of Terreno Mix, 700 x 40.  Really enjoyed my first ride on them in a mix of easy single-track, rail-rails, and a bit of pavement.  Found them incredibly cush in the rough stuff (had been on Vittoria 700 x 33 tires), and good on the wet mucky stuff, but a bit sluggish on pavement and dry dirt.  

Bought them b/c I love my smaller Vittorias so much: fast and darn near bombproof against rocks and single-track abuse.  So wanted to try a 40c tire.  Was going to get WTB Nanos, but then these hit the market and I was sold.  

I'll update as I get more miles logged, but I just wanted to report that this line of tires (dry, mix, wet) should be on your radar.  Comes in three sizes and is tubeless compatible (I'm using w/ tubes).  

I predict that these tires are going to win a cohort of devoted riders.

so the terreno mix is a good allround option for mixed stuff.

After starting this thread, I went ahead and purchased both the Overide and the Terreno Dry in the 700x40 size.

Currently I'm running the Terreno Dry on the front and the Overide on the rear. The combination rolls with minimal resistance, especially on pavement and firm gravel. The bike performs more like a road bike and keeping a faster pace is easier than on the 700x36 Donnelly MSO I was using previously. Traction on all dry surfaces is more than sufficient, even on steep gravel climbs and fast descents on loose surfaces. A plush tubeless tire, with 40-50 psi, offers plenty of grip if conditions are dry.

If I never spent time on pavement, I would use a tires with a knobby tread design, probably the WTB Riddler. I really enjoy a fast rolling, plush tire and both the Overide and Terreno Dry are recommended.
