Trail Boss calls the shots out on the trail. A true all-around-er, this tire feels at home on your local singletrack. With an aggressive tread pattern, Trail Boss rolls faster than you’d expect.

Large, supportive side knobs dig deeeeeeep, whether you’re leaning into a corner or grabbing a handful of brake.

Some tires are semi-slick and fast while others are chunky and bite. Trail Boss is designed to be the middleground trail tire. Tight groupings of center knobs cut down on rolling resistance without hesitating to dig in while braking. Tall outer knobs quickly provide traction in the earliest phases of cornering.
Strategically Directional Siping
Center and intermediate knobs are siped in a direction that improves accelerating and braking traction by increasing the amount of working edges that bite into the trail when you crank on the pedals or slam on the brakes. Outer knobs feature sipes that run parallel to the tire in order to provide the surface of the knobs with more cornering traction.
Trail Boss 2.25 features toothy knobs that maximize braking traction while their relatively tight spacing improves improve the longevity of the rear tire by increasing the total surface area counteracting heavy braking forces. Substantial side knobs overhang the sidewall of the tire to protect it from slashes while you're steering with the rear.
