27.5 x 2.80 Hutchinson Taipan Koloss Tyre
( Click to Enlarge )
The Taipan is unlike any other Hutchinson tyre, starting completely from scratch the idea was to create a unique all-around performing XC tire that would excel in a variety of conditions.
New from Hutchinson, the Taipan Koloss is a "plus sized" 27.5 x 2.80 version and features modifications to the original Taipan tread pattern which is an excellent all round performer. The fragmented centre knobs provide great traction with low rolling resistance while shedding mud easily and the lateral knobs are sculpted to optimise braking and grip. Traditional MTB tyre design is terrain or condition limited, aimed for either dry or muddy, rocky or wet specific. The Taipan Koloss spans all these conditions through its unique width, tread, and knob design.
This Tubeless Ready 27.5 x 2.80 tyre features a folding bead design with a 66 TPI casing featuring Hutchinsons new SpiderTech construction and weighs in at 900 grams.
While you could easily run a pair of these tyres for dry and fast terrain, try running a Taipan Koloss on the rear with a Toro Koloss on the front for the ultimate all terrain setup.
