Scorpion MTB Rear Specific is the mountain bike tyre designed for maximum traction and durability of the rear tyre in a variety of riding situations. The tread is designed for the same terrain types as Scorpion MTB Mixed Terrain, with blocks whose average height and spacing on mixed surfaces in dry and wet conditions offer a wide range of use, traction and cornering, and braking at lean angles.
The use of the special SmartGRIP compound guarantees a strong impression and high tear resistance to guarantee good grip in all weather conditions: Your best competitor for off-road performance.
Tear resistant compound with 120 tpi flank reinforcement and improved puncture and cut protection without compromising smooth running performance.
The SmartGRIP Compound ensures a strong grip even on wet surfaces. The weather cannot impair grip in either dry or wet conditions.
Optimised tread pattern for state-of-the-art aluminium or carbon rims with wide inner groove.
Tubeless Ready 120 tpi carcass, specially designed to absorb shocks and to provide a more stable ride with lower tyre pressures and wider contact patch.
SmartGRIP Compound is a rubber compound based on the latest chemical technologies and provides two typical properties that are normally contradictory in the off-road sector: mechanical strength and chemical grip. The performance level of this compound allows it to be used for the entire rubber layer that makes up the tread.
The use of a single compound ensures that there is no reduction in performance as wear increases, which is a critical problem with different compounds in multiple layers. Pirelli selects the best compound for each tread pattern and size without sacrificing grip and handling on dry and wet surfaces.
