Speed & Grip When You Need It
The Scorpion XC range has been designed to offer high speed and grip performances in cross-country competitions. At the heart of this collection is the Pirelli Scorpion XC H 29 Inch MTB Tire. It is extremely lightweight and will always give you the best rolling efficiency and control in almost every weather condition.
The tread pattern of Scorpion XC H is made up of low, densely packed knobs with reduced height to increase speed and limit deforming when cornering on hardpack terrain.
The Scorpion 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 Scorpion XC H is the best choice for XC and marathon courses where speed and efficiency are key factors.
