Designed in partnership with multiple Downhill World Championship Greg Minnaar, this all-conditions tire has tall, sharp knobs to punch through dust and loam to find grip. Hard-packed or muddy, dry or wet and rooty, the Assegai provides the grip and cornering support required by riders at the top of the sport.
- Tubeless ready tire means lower air pressure, improved traction, lower rolling resistnace and less chance of flatting.
- Intermediate (not too soft, not too hard) rubber compound is designed offer a balance of traction, speed and durability.
- EXO protection increases sidewall durability, abrasion and cut resistance.
- Wide trail spacing is optimized for 30-35mm inner width rims.
The bead holds the tire onto the rim. Beads may be hoops of wire, or made of a flexible material which allows them to be folded compactly. Folding tires are easier to store or pack on trips.
