Can you make a tire that excels in the dry and the wet? That sheds mud but rolls fast? That’s light but has a meaty tread compound for loose, muddy trails? Sure you can, because we did. That’s the Taipan, the all-course, all-conditions quiver of one to tackle any trail on any day. Blocky, v-shaped knobs power through wet and muddy conditions for exceptional acceleration and mud-shedding abilities. Modest tread block height keeps weight down and efficiency up when the skies clear and the trails dry out. It’s the perfect pick for those days when the weather can’t make up its mind.
