Tubeless ready all-purpose MTB tyre intended for XC and marathon racing.
Thanks to the VECTRANTM PUNCTURE BARRIER, this tyre has excellent puncture protection under the tread, and more importantly at the most vulnerable part – the sidewalls.
The tread pattern of the XC11 TR tyre provides low rolling resistance, is self-cleaning and has exceptionally good grip in a wide range of weather and terrain conditions. Because that’s what you need from a high-performance race tyre.
Oil silica A soft compound (60 shore a) developed for mtb cross country and marathon tyres. Adding a reasonable amount of oil to a polymer blend with activated silica improves traction and reduces rolling resistance.
Sidewall protection A specially formulated slippery sidewall strip protects the most vulnerable part of certain mtb tubulars. This special sidewall strip allows the tubular to slide off sharp edges without damaging the tyre carcass.
Vectran puncture barrier This most effective anti-puncture system is placed directly under the tread area. The core of the anti-puncture system is made from vectran – liquid crystal polymer (lcp) fibres which are five times stronger than steel. Vectran also offers outstanding cut resistance and high impact resistance at a low weight – highly demanding properties for high-end bicycle tyres.
Vectran puncture barrier not only provides the best possible puncture protection but also ensures precise cornering and improved stability.
