The Saguaro’s TNT (tubeless ready) beads make this one tight tyre to ﬁt, but once on you’ll make up time with its fast-rolling tread pattern.
Small, shallow blocks help keep weight respectable while their chevron layout dictates opposite rolling directions for front and rear. Grip on rocky and rooty terrain is impressive while cornering and braking is reliable.
Put the hammer down on descents and you’ll get some drift, but it never washed out on us. It’s bang on the money for a 2.2in width and the high ‘Phase 3.1’ reinforced sidewall gives great pinch ﬂat resistance.
