The new Scorpion XC RC was developed as purely a racing tire to meet the high-performance needs of Vlad Dascalu, a European champion, World Champion and World Cup winner XCO U23, and Samuele Porro, an Italian National Champion, a silver medalist at the European Championships and bronze medalist at the World Championships in the XCM category. Porro asked Pirelli engineers for a new tire more oriented towards the Olympic Cross-Country races but also with excellent performance in the XCM events.
The Scorpion XC RC is a tubeless-ready tire with a 120 TPI Nylon casing construction. It is available in LITE and ProWALL versions, for increased puncture protection. The tire combines Pirelli’s technology already found in their other MTB tires including their SmartGRIP compound. The SmartGRIP compound is a mono-compound with a high mechanical strength that offers stability, long life, and optimal grip on all terrain
