Description

Ready to roll.

Vredestein worked on developing its new Competition Line of tires with the objective of balancing low weight, high traction, and overall durability. The result is a 10% weight reduction compared to its previous versions, yet it still maintains the same high quality construction that Vredestein is known for. The Black Panther Xtreme 29in TLR Tire stands at the top of this range of tires, as it's lightweight, gripp'y, UST/tubeless-ready, and built for what Vredestein calls 'heavy conditions.' For us, this translates to a tire that readily tackles both wet and dry trails littered with roots, rocks, and everything in between.

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 Xtreme differs significantly from Vredestein's standard Black Panther and Xtrac versions, in that it uses varying knob sizes that have been arranged in a different pattern. And while the original Black Panther and Xtrac iterations employ a central row of knobs, the Xtreme uses more of a staggered arrangement with open 'pockets' down the center. Additionally, the side knobs were beefed up, growing both taller and wider in order to provide enhanced bite on the sidewalls. The advantage of this tread arrangement is that you receive improved overall grip in wet conditions, increased mud-shedding capabilities, and enhanced cornering traction in comparison to both the original and Xtrac versions.

Similar to the other Black Panthers, the Xreme is UST/tubeless-ready. Vredestein also incorporated its anti-puncture system directly into the tread compound, keeping the overall weight of the tire low.

The Vredestein Black Panther Xtreme 29in TLR Tire is available in a 29x2.2in size and in the color Black.
