The Black Mamba XC tire was developed with Julien Absalon (2x Olympic and 4x World XC Champion). It was specifically created for the London Olympic XC course. Its design lineage comes from the Hutchinson Piranha and Cobra. The goal of the Black Mamba is a very light and fast in dry condition tire. A dense low profile 2 compound knob pattern covers the tire. With the 2.0 version of this tire weighing in at only 450 grams this is an extremely light competition tire. Softer compound side cornering lugs hang on well when cornering. Available in Tubeless Ready RR and Airlight tubed models. This is definately a race day performance tire.
