The Black Panther is a competition-oriented tire designed to perform well in a wide variety of terrain conditions. Vredestein’s patented TriCompX technology endows the tire with a progressive, triple compound tread; softer rubber on the edges for more grip in the corners, and a harder center tread for maximum speed when the bike is fully upright. The tread blocks’ placement and design expand upon this performance philosophy in a staggered five row structure with taller knobs placed outward and closely placed, near flat center knobs. A high thread count casing ensures a supple, low rolling resistance ride in a reasonably light weight package.
As a designated tubeless ready tire, the Black Panther may be installed without a tube, requiring only a tubeless compatible rim and a small amount of tire sealant, such as that available from Stan’s NoTubes.
