Pirelli presents Scorpion MTB: a tire line, that eliminates the weather variable!
Pirelli expands also to the off-road world and presents a Scorpion MTB range in Sicily, its first tire line specifically designed for Mountain Bikes. The distinctive concept of the new Pirelli product line is a range of models designed for the variety of terrains, based on their consistency, from compact to soft. Easily understandable, developed for each specific need, the new Scorpion MTB line will definitely surprise you. It offers the most suitable rubber for every type of riding, considering terrain, style, wheel characteristics. The result is a tire line that guarantees maximum performance in each size and version, regardless of the weather conditions.
Each size is produced separately
The great experience acquired by Pirelli in the Motocross field has been invested, in the new MTB tire development: tread patterns, knob shape and height, distance, cross-link and angles. All this has been studied for maximum efficiency on the specific surfaces you're riding on. While designing new tires, the Pirelli's engineers also had to consider many other variables: from the rider's riding style to the most recent developments in terms of profiles and rim sizes. This is why the construction technology of the new Scorpion MTB is different for each tire size. The combination and interaction of different compounds, reinforcements, static and dynamic rubber properties, measurements and patterns for the various terrains: all this was quite a difficult technical challenge for Pirelli but nothing can change their professional approach! They develop all their products with the specific customer needs in mind. The new Scorpion MTB range allows the rider to freely choose tire size that best suits their riding style, without fear of compromising on performance.
