Description

Wild n' out.

When speed is on the menu, low-profile knobs are essential to prevent energy loss. This often comes as a sacrifice in the traction department. But, with the Michelin Wild Race'r 29in Tire, intelligent knob construction reduces that negative impact.

To start with, this tubeless twenty-niner tire's hollow, diamond-shaped blocks alternate between being bridged together and being solo. This happens along the center tread zone, and it helps to reduce flex under acceleration and braking. Additionally, it enables a conforming level of flex when needed. Meanwhile, the bridging ties into the side transition blocks.

This gives the tire consistent traction during turn-in, and it ramps up as lean angle is increased. The enhanced traction is from more aggressive knobs, with additional siping. Along the Wild Race'r Tire's outer-edge, reinforced triangles dig in to loose soil for confidence inspiring handling.

The Michelin Wild Race'r 29in Tire has a folding UST Aramid bead and is available in either a 2.1 or 2.25-inch width. Please note that this tire is sold individually, and that it does not include either tire sealant or rim tape.

Fast Tire w/ Decent Grip

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a really fast rolling tire that offers pretty decent grip once you get your air pressure set just right. It is not as light or fast rolling as something like the Maxxis Aspen but still holds its own very well. Sets up tubeless very easily as well.

do I have to run them tubeless? we have...



do I have to run them tubeless? we have a lot of goat heads that I am constantly pulling them out of my tires, I run slime in my other tubes, it works well for all the thorns. Help, what do I want?

Best Answer

It will not be a problem to run tubes with this tire. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. brett@competitivecyclist.com

I've been running these tubeless for 2 seasons they work great. Nice beefy sidewall puts up with Colorado rocks. Also I like that they are a little bigger volume softens things up on a HT.
