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

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!

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
