When you’ve been around a few decades, you learn a few things, but you don’t do it by staying still. The Python 2 has stood the test of time (and won a cabinet full of medals) through continual refinements to make it one of the best performance XC tires on the start line. It’s versatile enough for almost any trail, with a fast-rolling center section and wide, low-height knobs for efficient power transfer and grip at the rear wheel with less power lost to lug squirm. Squared-off shoulders make even off-camber sections feel like hero dirt, thanks partly to the softer shoulder compound in the RR.XC tread technology.

20 years of victories
Legendary

IN PRACTICE

The Python 2, that’s the ultimate tire with 20 years of victories! Its legendary «square» profile gives a top fast-rolling efficacy on all dry to mixed terrains, with square knob structure and an optimised compound-casing sealing. Associated with square profile, the lateral grip is excellent and the Race Ripost® compound is ideal when gaining speed, riding on bankings, getting out of ruts. For intensive use, you’ll love it at the rear. The legend is reassuring, trust it!

STRENGHTS

Legendary tire, multiple winner of the XC World Cup.

Fast rolling “square” effective profile.

Gives performance, grip and high-quality fast rolling capacity.

More reliable thanks to compound thickness and raised sidewalls.

 

ADVICE FROM A PRO

Alexis CHENEVIER, 6 times Transvésubienne Winner

« For me, the best word to describe the Python 2 is VERSATILITY. It is mounted on my XCountry and All Mountain bikes 90% of the time. I use it mainly in rear mounts for its excellent grip in traction and braking while maintaining a very good yield. The PYTHON 2 performs well on dry and mixed grounds. With the Hardskin casing, it is very resistant. With the Python 2 at the back, and the Kraken at the front, I could win 6 times the mythical Transvésubienne.»
