Pirelli tires are not only in the range for motorized athletes.
The cyclist also benefits from the years of experience of the Italians. With their Scorpion mountain bike tires they don't have to hide from the competition either.
The Pirelli Scorpion R is a special mountain bike rear tire. It delivers top performance in wet and dry weather conditions. The tread consists of medium length lugs arranged in a medium pitch pattern. The rubber compound ensures a service life that is in no way inferior to that of a front wheel tyre. It is also perfectly matched for mounting on modern wheels with large rim widths.
Unique to PIRELLI Scorpion mountain bike tires is a continuous layer of Smart Grip Compound. The advantage is that the high performance of the cleats is retained even after a longer period of use. This ensures uncompromising traction, both in dry and wet soil conditions.
The Scorpion R 2.2 is equipped with a flexible 120 TPI TUBE-LESS READY carcass. This offers optimal stability and traction, even with low tire pressures.
The tear-resistant rubber compound in combination with a 120 TPI sidewall reinforcement provides additional puncture and cut protection.
