Fast and confident on the trail
From legendary tire designer Frank Stacy, the Bontrager SE2 Team Issue Mountain Bike Tire features a compound formulated specifically for lightweight durability, improved cornering traction, and low rolling resistance. This Tubeless Ready tire is built with a reinforced sidewall and the sub-tread protection of a Core Strength casing around a fast-rolling versatile tread.
- A versatile trail tire that excels in loose-over-hardpack and firm conditions
- Fast-rolling, with consistent, predictable traction for a variety of trail conditions
- Tubeless Ready (TLR) for easy tubeless setup and puncture protection
- Core Strength has sidewall and sub-tread protection for lightweight durability
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 bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
