Specialized Chunder PRO XC Tyre review
There are loads of ways of designing tyres either by using computers or making pro riders go round and round in circles across different terrain (or both), but we really like Specialized's pragmatic approach to their new cross-country tyres. The Chunder XC basically looks like a skinny, worn out version of their Chunder DH tyre. It has the same tread pattern, but the paired centre knobs are really low, so they roll super quick. It sits on a supple, lightweight 1.9in carcass too, so acceleration is easy andinstant. The side knobs are full size though, so if you get them onto their edges there's plenty of bite for creating your own berms.
