ProTection technology provides tires with the perfect combination of smooth running, grip, and puncture protection. This is made possible by an additional puncture protection layer encircling the tire which makes it extra tough and resistant to damage all around. Despite the additional layer, the tire has an excellent dampening effect and provides clean bracing action along the toughest trails. Black Chili provides the required smoothness of running and grip.
