Italian brand Pirelli have been designing, developing, and manufacturing rubber based products since the late 1800s and can trace their first car tyre back to 1901. Since these early days Pirelli have become one of the premier names in tyre technology, making tyres for even the most demanding of applications such as Formula 1 and the super bike world championship.
It was inevitable that Pirelli would eventually use their knowledge to create a collection of bicycle tyres. Available now are a selection of road race, road tour, mountain bike, gravel bike and urban commuter tyres, all of which benefit from Pirelli's extensive experience in tyre manufacturer.
The Scorpion mountain bike tyre line is an extension of the off-road success Pirelli have achieved in rally and motocross. Highly engineered tread patterns are combined with technical compounds and casings. The result is a durable, reliable tyre with specialist models for downhill, enduro, trail and XC. The mountain bike range is constructed using Pirelli's own Smartgrip compound which is effective in both wet and dry conditions and the ProWall casing for superior strength and puncture resistance.
Much like the mountain bike range the road and gravel tyres are incredibly advanced in their design. Used by world tour athletes the Pirelli road tyres are among the highest performing you can fit to your bike. Made in a wide selection of sizes with discipline specific features Pirelli are the perfect choice for riders who need the very best.
