27.5 x 2.35 Hutchinson Taipan Tubeless Ready
The team at Hutchinson really outdid themselves this time. While traditional MTB tyre design is targeted to specific terrains or conditions, Hutchinson started from scratch with the idea to create a unique XC tyre that wasn't limited by your location.
The result is the fantastic Hutchinson Taipan with wide spaced knobs to shed mud, raised geometric ridges to hang on to roots and small rocks, as well as angled knob ramps that act like anchors when you grab that brake lever. The centre tread section also features 3mm knobs that deliver grip without severely impacting rolling resistance.
This 27.5 x 2.35 Tubeless Ready tyre weighs only 980g and features a 2x66 TPI casing and Race Riposte E-Bike dual compound designed to withstand the high torque load E-Bikes can generate. This model also features a folding bead and Hardskin puncture protection built in which adds a high-density textile reinforcement to the casing protecting against cuts and punctures.
"What is Tubeless Ready?" you ask. Well, Tubeless ready means this tyre can be used on a standard wheel with an inner tube, or, you can mount it on any UST or tubeless compatible wheel, throw some sealant in there (we recommend Hutchinson Protect'Air) and you're away laughing.
