Speed. In cross country racing, this is all that matters. To achieve this, however, a cross country mountain bike tire needs to deliver on all fronts for various different kinds of terrain. Our tires have this covered, though, and with a World Championship level of confidence to boot. You can expect fast tread patterns with plenty of grip in the corners and on climbs, plus durable constructions that won't leave you flatting out at the pivotal moment of your race. Consider them the total package when it comes to race-day performance.
Trail riding is a tricky thing—you need to be able to climb and descend with equal doses of prowess. So it comes as no surprise that finding the perfect trail tire can be a bit of chore. Not anymore, though, because our trail tires feature durable constructions and fast rolling tread patterns that leave you with a barrel full of confidence when the trail points downward.
When you're riding all mountain, you need tires that are ready and willing to handle the entire mountain. Our all mountain tires are up for the challenge, though, and this isn't by chance. They're designed to offer varying levels of "toughness," and feature a variety of tread patterns that will matchup perfectly with the conditions of your local trails and riding style. So go ahead and go full lean into that dusty berm—our tires have you covered.
Downhill mountain biking stands as the ultimate proving ground for equipment, and tires are no exception to this. It's fast, aggressive, and extremely taxing when it comes to wear, which is why our gravity and downhill mountain bike tires place a focus on strength, speed, and traction. Within the line, you'll find our recommendations for front and rear tires that vary in tread design and width, all with a focus on getting you to the bottom of the track as fast as possible.
You're putting it all out there when you're riding, so let's just say that you have enough to worry about without having to worry about your tires. So to give you both confident performance and peace of mind, we build our tires to be fast rolling with loads of traction and strength. Go ahead and air it out, your tires are going to be there when you reenter the atmosphere.
