Mitas Launch CX range of tyres
2017 sees the launch of a range of Cyclo-cross tyres and Mitas sees this sport as a real growth area in cycling. Three tyres will be released after extensive testing a development in the wilds of the Czech and Slovakian hills, to cater for all conditions in Cyclo-cross.
X-Swamp is the most aggresive pattern, designed to cope with wet muddy and soft terrain. The high knobs give good traction, solid handling and a good self-cleaning ability. Weight 375gms.
X-Field is the most versatile pattern and is designed for more moderate/intermediate terrain. Tread is of optimal height for the application and gives low rolling resistance, speed, traction and effective braking ability. This will be the right choice for most CX tracks. Weight 355gms.
X-Road This tread pattern will suit hard packed terrain but will also function well on the road for training. Finer and smaller tread blocks, especially in the central zone of the tyre, ensure low rolling resistance bringing enjoyment from fast and comfortable riding. Weight 335gms.
All new CX tyres are made in 700x33C sizing with folding Kevlar bead construction and ‘WELTEX’ technology to fully protect the bead of the tyre from abrasion cuts experienced by carbon rim shoulders. The CX tyres also come tubeless ready for ultimate performance and reliability.
All the tread patterns are RRP £26.64 (plus vat)
