The tread design is optimally geared to the requirements of XCO trails. Ideal for man-made technically demanding sections and natural terrain with hard gravel or loose rocks. The RC is designed for racing, for riders who want to control their bike on technically demanding tracks and maximise their speed. Thanks to the SmartGRIP compound, the XC RC is very durable and reliable.

TREAD The tread of the Scorpion XC RC was developed together with XCO World Cup athletes: low and thick centre lugs for best rolling efficiency, higher side lugs for lean angle control. A tread design without compromise.
COMPOUND SmartGRIP Compound is an advanced compound developed based on motorsport experience. The single compound solution provides consistently high grip performance on both wet and dry surfaces, even when the lugs start to wear down.
PROWALL Our protective sidewall reinforcement technology for improved puncture protection and handling at low pressure. An extra layer of nylon fabric over the sidewalls of the carcass for added protection and improved cornering stability.
