Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons

  • The specialist when it comes to the rear wheel, is specifically designed for speed on straight sections and grip in turns.
  • With this tyre you are faster than the Scorpion MTB M series, without compromising on too much grip.
  • The durable compound with 120 TPI reinforced sidewalls gives you good protection against cuts and snake bites.
  • The supple carcass ensures stability and grip at a lower tyre pressure.
  • This tyre is specially designed for the rear wheel, so it's less suitable for the front wheel.

Description

Description

The Pirelli Scorpion MTB R is the specialist when it comes to the rear wheel. With a medium profile and an average profile distance, the Scorpion MTB R has excellent grip and traction. The Scorpion R is a versatile tyre and can be used on multiple types of terrain; from soft to hard surfaces and in dry and wet conditions.

The tread of the Scorpion MTB R has a small profile with a small profile distance in the centre. This profile choice ensures a low rolling resistance on straight sections. The shoulders are provided with wider studs with a larger profile distance. This way, the Pirelli Scorpion R maintains its grip on high speeds in turns.

The anti-puncture compound on the tread ensures great durability. The 120 TPI inforced sidewalls minimalise the chance of getting cuts and snake bites. Thanks to the supple carcass, the Scorpion MTB R is perfectly usable with a lower tyre pressure. That way you enjoy a high stability and a powerful grip. Just like other tyres from the Pirelli Scorpion series, the MTB R tyre can also be made tubeless.

If you want to get the most out of the Scorpion R, be sure to make your tyre tubeless for even less rolling resistance!

Great per tyre

I have rides this tyre in a number of conditions from mud through to hardpacked gravel, the tyre grips well and inspires confidence in turns. Even when going over wet roots, or on steep rocky climbs there is no slipping. Tyres clear mud from the tread easily, so no mud build up on the tyre. Tyres were easy to set up for tubeless, and sealed on the first attempt and haven't lost pressure over the last 3 weeks.

Pros

  • Grip
  • Cornering
  • Mud clearance
  • Easy to set up tubeless

Cons

  • cost
  • can be tight to fit

Uitstekende tubeless band

Ondertussen de tweede keer dat ik voor Pirelli kies. Banden gaan vlot op wiel en tubeless zetten lukt met een booster zonder problemen. Dit is een goede all round band. Heeft minder last van tubeless melk "zweten" dan de banden die ik vroeger gebruikte (continental).

Pros

  • Past vlot
  • Makkelijk tubeless zetten
  • Zweet geen melk uit
  • All round

Cons

  • Profiel beperkt voor zware modder

Zeer goed

Op mijn motoren rijd ik ook met Pirelli banden. Omdat ik zeer te vreden over deze motor banden ben wilde ik deze Pirelli MTB Rear Specific band eens uitproberen Net als op de motor stelt deze niet teleur. Veel grip met en geeft vrij wel meteen vertrouwen in de bochten. Er kan behoorlijk wat kracht op de pedalen gezet worden voordat hij grip verliest. Afgelopen week naar de Ardennen geweest erg plezierig om met deze band te rijden. Veel grip tijdens stevig remmen op de afdalingen. Ik heb de band met een 8 beoordeeld omdat ik andere merk banden nog niet geprobeerd heb. Maar vraag me af of ik iets anders wil. Wellicht verdient deze band wel een hogere score. Slijtage kan ik nog niets over zeggen daar heb ik hem te kort voor.

Pros

  • Grip
  • Grip tijdens remmen
  • Redelijk lage rol weerstand
  • Geeft vertrouwen

Top achterband!

De 2.4 valt mooi en makkelijk op mijn 30mm velgen. Tubeless in één keer. De lage rolweerstand maakt hem snel en de grote zij noppen geven voldoende grip in de afdalingen. Erg blij mee!

Pros

  • Lage rolweerstand
  • Veel grip
  • Slijt niet heel snel
