The Country Race’R is an entry-level mountain bike tire designed for hard-packed and mixed terrain. It is more trail focused than the Country Grip’R, which is more aimed at durability and versatility. The Country Race’R has low tread blocks distributed over the whole tread to improve speed and maximise performance. The diamond-shaped tread blocks set at 45° to the rolling direction get more edge in contact with the trail and provide more grip. It’s an excellent compromise between grip and performance.
