Description

Show Description

Rides like an enduro dream. This fast, technical tire has easy-rolling centre lugs and a linear shoulder to provide sharp cornering and predictable drift. The casing is rated at 240 TPI, has 3 plies at the sidewall, and 4 plies beneath the tread for racking up mileage. Reinforced sidewalls reduce the chance of pinch flats.

  • Black Chili Compound provide 26% lower rolling resistance, 30% higher grip, and 5% longer mileage than silica compounds.
  • ProTection APEX casing has overlapping 3–4-ply construction.
  • More rubber at the bead improves retention, minimizes burping, and eases tubeless-ready setups.
  • Even, widely spaced lugs grip on a range of conditions, and shed mud quickly.
