Description

Speed with grip.

Three distinct rubber compounds allow the Black Panther CX Tire to balance grip and efficiency in a variety of off-road conditions. It's the same TriComp X concept found on Vredestein's high-end road tires, just adapted to give cyclocross racers a competitive edge.

Vredestein is known for obsessing over the compositions of its rubber compounds and the way that they're applied to specific zones of the tire. It calls this Tricomp X technology, as testing has shown Vredestein engineers where specific rubber compounds and tread patterns work to provide the lowest rolling-resistance and maximum grip in all weather conditions. By using different compounds in the tread and shoulder, and combining this with a knob structure specifically suited to these compounds, the tire provides a well-balanced blend of speed, grip, and low overall weight.

The compound is enhanced by a semi-smooth, connected center tread in order to ensure a reduction in lug flex. Accordingly, the tread pattern provides a smooth sense of rolling and acceleration on hard-packed courses. However, when things get loose, the multiple rows of nicely spaced side knobs bite to keep you upright. Adding to this, the tire's 33mm-width and asymmetric shoulder cleats further encourage hard cornering, low rolling-resistance, and optimal mud-shedding.

The tire also features Vredestein's proprietary SEC rubber compound and a 120 TPI casing. Essentially, this means that the casing is comprised of 120 threads per inch. Along these lines, you'll notice that the casing's TPI equates to finer-grade fibers used in its composition. Accordingly, the fine fibers are more malleable than a full rubber casing, and this flexibility creates a more adaptable interface for the tire's rubber contact surface during cornering. So, this design provides a higher level of grip, while also contributing to a low-level of rolling resistance. This equates directly to both comfort and speed.

The Vredestein Black Panther CX Tire is available in the color Black/black and in a 700c x 33mm size. Please note that this tire features a folding bead.
