The architecture of the Kraken’s knobs has been inspired by the Skeleton, the ultimate tire in terms of performance. Developed in 29 x 2.30, the volume of the Kraken allows to go down in pressure to bring a maximum of comfort and serenity in the most chaotic parts. The ultimate goal with the Kraken was also to design a tire that would not be too exclusive, only for XC athletes, but to expand its use to any mountain bike addict and trail lover.

Versatility, grip and performance


The architecture of its studs is inspired by the Skeleton, an XC tire that excels when it comes to performance. Developed in the size 29 x 2.30, the volume of the Kraken allows the pressure to be reduced to bring maximum comfort and peace of mind on the bumpiest of sections. Available in two constructions, ultralight 127 TPI and ultra-versatile 66 TPI coupled with the Hardskin® bead-to-bead reinforcement, the Kraken Racing Lab will meet the needs of pure performance enthusiasts as well as those of XC Marathon competitors and Trail enthusiasts.
