Hutchinson has expanded its MTB range with the Griffus 2.4 and Griffus 2.5.
The two tyres, designed for Gravity use, are tubeless ready and come in two versions, 2.4 and 2.5. The tyres are the first product to come from Hutchinson’s Racing Lab programme which uses elite and professional riders to test, give feedback and fine tune products that are produced from research and development at Hutchinson’s French headquarters.
Hutchison said its objective was to develop a gravity tyre with the “fastest rolling performance and the best lateral grip for every type of hard pack and dry conditions”. The Griffus 2.4 is the faster rolling performance version, its central tread offering the “right compromise between efficiency and braking”.
With a 57mm cross section and a faster central tread it can be used as a rear tyre for riders “seeking to save precious seconds in competition”. The Griffis 2.4 is also a versatile tyre and can be used for all mountain riding as a front and rear option.
Each tyre is reinforced with the Hardskin textile grid from bead to bead and 66 TPI casing. The tyres both retail at £45.95 and come in either black or tan wall versions.
