Wicked Fast Tread For Hardpack Trails
The Scorpion Trail H is the best choice when trails are hard and speed is the key factor. The low profile and compact tread spacing on the Scorpion Trail H is suited for riding quickly and confidently over any type of hardpack terrain.
For all those Trail MTB racers out there, this is a perfect back tire choice for longer races where every watt counts. It works really well when paired with the grippier Scorpion Trail M in the front. Even if you are an excellent bike handler, you'll want a little more bite in the front, especially if there is loose dirt throughout the course.
The pattern tread of Scorpion Trail H is made up of low, densely packed knobs with reduced height to increase speed and limit deforming when cornering on hardpack terrain.
SmartGRIP Compound is an advanced compound developed using motorsport experience. The single compound provides constant high grip performance both in wet and dry conditions, even when the tread starts to wear.
ProWALL sidewall reinforcement technology increases puncture protection and improves handling at low pressures. An additional layer of Nylon fabric is applied over the casing sidewalls for extra protection and improved cornering stability.
The Pirelli Scorpion MTB range was born from Pirelli's experience and know-how in the world of off-road competitions. Rally and motocross are an integral part of their DNA and became the starting point for the research and development that culminated with the Scorpion MTB. The shape of the knobs was based on the experience and technology behind the Scorpion MX range, which has been used on every motocross and supercross race circuit in the world, winning more than 65 world titles.

Got about 50 miles on them so far and they work good for me. Mainly ride single track with a few rock gardens and roots. It is a good all round trail / aggressive XC tire.
