The Scorpion Enduro Hard Terrain is an MTB tyre designed for compact terrain and the hardest surfaces. The tread features low, tightly packed knobs and elevated ability to adapt to the terrain, offering a large contact area and therefore excellent feeling while riding.
The use of the special SmartGRIP Compound guarantees an elevated adaptability and at the same time resistance to tearing, offering elevated grip in all weather conditions, be they dry or wet: the best ally for your performance off-road.
Featuring HYPER WALL A newly designed construction that increases even further handling and pinch flat resistance. Key in off-road applications, especially in the most demanding ones such as gravity and eMTB, the integrity of the bead area and the stability of the sidewalls are a founding pillar for the overall tyre performance:
Pirelli introduces a construction that solidly anchors the bead and the rubber sidewall insert with a woven fabric flipper, making them behave as one whole solid piece instead of as separate components with relative movements to each other.
Protection: Multi-ply 60tpi TLR Nylon casing plus bead to bead woven nylon layer for extra strength and reliability + HYPER WALL increasing protection against pinch flats and higher protection against side wall cuts.
Grip: The SmartGRIP rubber compound guarantees elevated grip on wet surfaces; weather is no longer an issue, no sacrificing grip for dry or wet conditions.
Handling: Low pressure handling is increased with HYPER WALL construction as well as bead stability. The shape of the tyre has been optimised for modern rims made of aluminium or carbon with a wide internal groove.
Damping: Robust 60 tpi TUBELESS READY Nylon casing, designed to dampen shocks and vibrations and make low pressure riding more stable with a wider footprint on the ground.
Tread: The tread of the Scorpion MTB Soft Terrain is made up of deeper, more widely spaced knobs that guarantee excellent penetration into the terrain and elevated chemical and mechanical grip, making it perfect even for a more aggressive riding style. The depth and rigidity of the knobs encourages penetration in the terrain and mechanical grip, guaranteeing excellent responsiveness and feeling for traction and braking as well as excellent support when cornering. In addition, the specific spacing of the knobs for the Scorpion MTB Soft Terrain and the rubber compound help unload any material that builds up on the tread at low speeds.
Single Rubber Compound: SmartGRIP is a compound that uses cutting-edge advances in chemical technology to achieve two typically opposed features in off-roading: mechanical resistance and chemical grip. This compound is capable of achieving performance levels high enough that it can be used for the entire depth of the rubber used to create the tread. The use of a single rubber compound ensures that performance won’t decrease as tread wear increases, which is usually a key defect of multilayer compounds. Pirelli selects the best rubber compound for every tread and every size, no compromise between grip and handling in wet and dry conditions.
Structure: The structure of Scorpion MTB tyres is optimised on the basis of the end user’s riding style and intended use. Different combinations of materials, densities, thicknesses and sizes produce tyres that offer different riding experiences, guaranteeing very high levels of handling, grip and smoothness on any type of terrain. The words Tailor Development summarise the Pirelli approach, which focuses on the development and optimisation of tyre performance for every size and version, developing ad-hoc solutions for every single tyre in the Scorpion MTB catalogue.
