Super Race—The Ultimate Competition Construction For XC Racers
When speed, unsurpassed control and low rolling resistance matter, choose a tire with Super Race Construction.
Their extreme suppleness absorbs bumps, de-stresses the rider and ensures traction. Super Race is the prerequisite for shaving off seconds and achieving personal best times.
Super Race tires are ideal for sportive use in XC and marathon applications. Turn-Up construction keeps the tires supple and flexible, while the RaceGuard protection layer keeps your tires inflated while you achieve maximum speed.
- Shifted center blocks enable precise steering and high braking traction
- Stable shoulder blocks for precise steering
- Very quiet rolling characteristic with extremely low rolling resistance
- Folding bead, TLE

Tougher than I thought!
I run this together with Thunder Burt and have traditionally run the Speedgrip version. I switched to the Super Race to get just a bit less rolling resistance. I was worried about puncture resistance especially since I'm running these in India and the Mumbai area specifically, where the terrain is brutal and replacements are non-existent. They have held up very well and I can't tell a huge difference in rolling resistance. That being said, I think they are great and if you can't get the Race then you'll still be fine with the Speedgrip. I'm running a lightened Scott Scale 920 (2021) with Carbon Wheels and have the tires at 2.25 though I am considering trying the 2.10" (Grip version). I cycle about 200km per week and run the odd CX race when I can.
