Outstanding For Fast And Dry XC Tracks
The THUNDER BURT Super Ground 29 inch MTB tire is Schwalbe's fastest MTB tire because of Its low weight and extremely low rolling resistance.
Tightly packed center knobs will keep you fast while beefier side knobs keep you upright when the terrain gets technical.
