Traditionally MTB tyre design is terrain or condition limited, it's either dry or muddy, rocky or wet specific. The Taipan uniquely spans all those conditions through its unique tread and knob design. Widely spaced knobs help shed mud when the going gets wet. Raised geometric ridges between the knob grab onto roots and smaller rocks when you need traction between knob contact.
The rolling contact patch is also knobbed with 3mm high knobs that deliver the perfect mix of tread with low rolling resistance. But traction is only half the story. What moves must stop as well, the Taipan has specifically angled ramps on its geometrically profiled knobs that guarantee that when you grab a handful of brake lever, something predictable happens.
Race Riposte XC (RRxc) Triple Compound (RRxc)
Triple compound construction works like this; hard understructure compound (94 ShA) supports the grippy softer lateral compound (50 ShA) as well as the medium durometer rolling compound (70 ShA). The third compound adds another level of structural integrity to the tyre.
Performance: Tubeless technology facilitates low-pressure riding, optimises grip and increases yield, improving tyre performance.
Comfort: The Tubeless concept dispenses with the inner tube ensuring incomparable comfort and allowing low-pressure riding.
Puncture Resistance: The Hardskin casing reinforcement provides puncture resistance on the tread and sidewalls.
