A new addition to the Hutchinson’s XC / Trail range, the Kraken Racing Lab is the remarkable result of close collaboration between designers, engineers and XC Hutchinson athletes. The objective? Develop a fast, agile and reliable tyre thanks to the addition of high lateral knobs to allow maximum confidence in cornering or upon rough terrain.
The architecture of the Kraken’s knobs has been inspired by the Skeleton, the ultimate tyre in terms of performance. Developed in 29 x 2.30, the volume of the Kraken allows to go down in pressure to bring maximum comfort and calm in the most chaotic moments.
The ultimate goal with the Kraken was also to design a tyre that would not be exclusive, only for XC athletes say, but to expand its use to any mountain bike addict and trail lover.
Available in two constructions, ultra-light 127 TPI or ultra-versatile 66 TPI coupled with Hardskin® bead-to-bead reinforcement, the Kraken Racing Lab will meet the needs of pure performance addicts as well as XC Marathon competitors or Trail enthusiasts.
The Kraken completes Hutchinson Racing Lab’s range, inaugurated last year with the Griffus.
