MSC TIRES - GRIPPER TLR 2C AM 2.30"
2C AM Compound: 62a/60a
Pro Shield Sidewall Protection
2.30" model (Carcass size) measures 2.50" from outside tread to outside tread.
The GRIPPER 2C AM is a slightly harder compound than the 2C AM RACE version. It is therefore a little more durable and will last longer but if you are seeking softer compound option either the 2C AM Race or the 3C would be recommended. It is not uncommon to use a harder compound on the rear wheel due to braking wear.
The Gripper is the choice for Enduro, Downhill, and trails of mixed terrain riding on broken, loose and wet ground.
Its four rows of high and wide blocks are grooved to give extra forward and lateral grip. This provides extraordinary traction and control during sudden braking, even in aggressive riding positions.
Alternate central tread blocks have been equipped with a ramp that decreases rolling resistance. The side blocks have been arranged in two different positions sawtooth style to ensure a perfect and consistent grip in fast turns, rocks and roots.
A lot of new Enduro and Downhill wheels now feature increasingly wider rims (30-35mm), existing tires designed for 20-25m rim width lose efficiency when their profile is altered, becoming more square in shape. The MSC Gripper has been designed to maintain the correct angle of the side knobs on 30 to 35mm rim this means the tread blocks are in exactly the right place for amazing cornering grip and speed.WEIGHT:
