Race Ripost® compound and Hardskin bead to bead reinforcement.

A very versatile tire, the Taïpan gives performance, lightness and adhesion, the indisputable assets. Whatever the conditions, it’ll take you on all terrains.
Its round balloon will blow away the most sceptical mountain bikers as to the capacity of the Taïpan to be a tire XC par excellence.
Finally, the volume of the lateral knobs is specified to optimise grip and lateral deformation. Used on a regular basis by the best XC and TRAIL racers in mixed/wet conditions.
The Taïpan is decisively the ultra-versatile tire. On top of being effective in mixed XC, it is the Trail profile by definition.
Sections, reinforcements, casings, compounds, all the ingredients are united to launch the legend!
Its profile is seductive to atypical enthusiasts. Its specific and spaced knobs optimise rolling just as much as adhesion when mounted at the front.

Team B/Twin MTB Racing Team
"The Taipan is very versatile and adapts extremely well to different conditions, dry as much as wet. It means, for example, that you’ll never be handicapped on a marathon. The quality of the compound offers an exceptional grip allowing me to maintain adhesion where previously I had slipped and skidded."
Multiple XC Master World Champion
« When friends ask me which kind of tires to use, I always recommend a set of TAIPANs. They are exceptionally versatile from ride to ride, with very satisfying ride qualities... and the durability of the compound is a great comfort during the whole season !. »
