The X-C-X is a Cross Country and Cyclocross tire designed for high-speed riding on medium to hard-packed trails.
- Fast rolling long narrow center knobs for increased speed and ramped smaller knobs across tire give added traction and cornering control
- Dual Compound is harder in the center for added durability and fast rolling while softer on the sides for enhanced cornering control
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
