“Control and confidence is what this tire was designed to inspire—all while pushing personal limits,” says Broste. “From a design standpoint, I wanted to make the transition time from center to edge shorter and give more support to the outer edges by increasing the block size and support to give confidence in cornering at speed. The center knobs were also beefed up to increase braking and acceleration.”
Each build is engineered to stand up to the demands of its intended use case and has been designed and tested to ensure that it works in the real world rather than just on paper.
Chunk 2.6 will be available in Light and Tough versions in both 27.5 and 29-inch sizes and will retail for $75.
