Jenson and Competitive Cyclist – End of season blow out
For most of us the season never really ends, we just switch to another style of racing or put on heavier jerseys. For some though, this means getting in new inventory and getting some of the previous season’s gear moving. So don’t worry about the daylight instead, get some knobber tires for that ride of yours and cruise into the sunset ready to shred the night away. Below are some of the coolest deals we could find in the large SALE sections on Competitive Cyclist and Jenson – Enjoy!
Maxis Aspen EXO/TR Tire – 29in
SALE 20% Off $51.20 $64.00
Minimal rolling resistance, light, and race-ready, the Maxxis Aspen EXO/TR 29in Tire is hungry to gobble up miles of rolling singletrack at top speeds. Affirming that wagon-wheels are the true dominators of cross-cross country, the Aspen packs in low-profile directional lugs in the center tread for rocketing on the straightaways, and aggressive side lugs that keep the confidence high when you barrel into corners. A high-volume casing helps to smooth out rock gardens and jarring root lattices, while EXO protection works to shield you from side punctures. The dual-compound construction means you’ve got hard, fast-rolling rubber in the center to keep you at top speeds, and extra grip on the sides that keeps you locked into loose berms.
Michelin Wild Grip’r 2 Advanced Tire – Tubeless
SALE 60% Off $26.00 $64.99
When you’re hungry for a hefty helping of trails with variable conditions, seating up a tire with dirt-locking grip is an essential item on the menu. With the Michelin Wild Grip’r 2 Advanced Tubeless Tire you’ll find just that, with rugged lugs to keep you connected through loose berms, slick mud, and dusty desert classics, plus puncture protection for some peace of mind when you dive down backcountry trails laced with debris.
VITTORIA Corsa G Plus Tire – Clincher
SALE 52% Off $33.05 – $39.95
Anyone with a passing interest in cycling tech has probably been exposed to the hype surrounding Vittoria’s new quadruple compound design, the heart of which is a thin, nearly transparent layer of carbon called graphene. The claims made for this material have been impressive, but we weren’t sure what to think until we got our hands on Vittoria’s Corsa G Plus Clincher Tires. Vittoria blends four rubber compounds with the inclusion of graphene for the Corsa G, and, without throwing any hyperbole around, we’d say the difference is very noticeable.
VITTORIA Morsa G Plus TNT Tire – 29in
SALE 49% Off $35.49 $69.00
Step up and drop in on the Vittoria Morsa G Plus TNT 29in Tire. With an audacious open tread and sharp, squared-off knobs, this tire provides an abundance of grip for any enduro or downhill shred session in a wide range of conditions. The knobs also feature ramped leading edges to reduce rolling resistance when you’re doing the work instead of gravity.
The Morsa G Plus incorporates Vittoria’s TNT casing, which is compatible with both tubes and sealant-based tubeless systems and reinforced with a Kevlar bead and sidewall protection. This tire also boasts the revolutionary new G+ Isotech compound, utilizing graphene within the compound mix to reduce rolling resistance and overall weight, increase durability, and improve grip in wet weather compared to tires without the G+ Isotech compound.
