  • Tread is tightly spaced for high speed, drag-free onslaughts, yet blocky and tall enough to really dig in when it comes time to slam on the brakes
  • Rounded profile and staggered, supported side knobs keep clamoring for traction even as the trail becomes smooth
  • Relatively tight tread spacing provides an excellent plane for riding harder surfaces, creating a smooth-rolling sensation
  • Siping on center blocks and corner blocks creates more working edges and as tires undergo braking and cornering, additional bands of grip are exposed to enhance traction
  • Cornering side blocks are offset from each other to create consistency and a predictable feel when transitioning from outer tread to inner tread
  • Robust casing provides the strength needed for wire-bead tires to last, and a high ratio of rubber to thread protects against trail threats and urban unpleasantries
  • Proprietary 60a durometer rubber compound offers the ideal mix of rolling efficiency and traction for cross-country and trail riding; plus, it's versatile and long lasting

Is the direction of rotation important for the Trail Boss 26 in x 2,25 in tire PN 101-272-0001? Is the Trail Boss logo supposed to be on the right side or the left side of the bicycle?

Asked by: Clark
This tire is directional. There will be an indication of the proper orientation labeled "Rotation" molded into the sidewall of the tire, with an arrow pointing in the direction of forward rotation.

Does this tire come rolled up inside out in a little ball? Have not had good luck with tires packed this way. Bead failed completely; fortunately I was going rather slow on level dirt trail at time. High speed could have been disastrous.

Asked by: NMChuck
This tire is not a folding version, so it will ship in its regular shape (a full circle).
