When your rides take you everywhere from quick-rolling hard-pack flow trail to rooty tree lines and rock gardens, you'll need your bike to keep up with the variety, and while modern mountain bikes certainly have a knack for tackling just about any terrain, your steed will thank you for throwing on a fresh pair of boots onto its wagon wheels that can take on any terrain. Teravail's Honcho 29in tires make an ideal partner for mixed conditions. The Honcho is designed to take on dusty miles of flowy singletrack, to damp and muddy rooty treelines, starting with center lugs that are evenly spaced lugs that sit close together, with ramping at the front to keep them rolling quickly. Tall transition lugs are spaced to shed mud, and lead way to staggered, beefy side lugs hook up with the dirt when you're leaning over in corners, and feature buttressing to support you under heavy cornering loads.
The Honcho is built with two different casing options— the Durable, and Light-and-Supple, aptly named for their riding characteristics. The Durable Bead-to-Bead casing offers protection from throughout the whole tire, with robust woven polymer composite between the outer rubber and inner casing, within the sidewalls, as well as tread, preventing tears and abrasions in rough terrain. Additionally, a second tightly woven layer of protection is added under the tread to protect from punctures. Conversely, the Light and Supple offers the basics when puncture protection is less critical, with decreased weight, and an extra-supple feel at lower pressures, elevating comfort while you ride.
