The Python has been proven over 10 years of use. New and improved, the tread of the Hutchinson Python UST NG Light Tire features linked center knobs for low rolling resistance and intermediate knobs between the center and the shoulder and tall knobs on the shoulder for fast cornering. Best used in dry, hardpack conditions.
For USTers, the Tubeless Light, the folding bead, and 66 TPI casing make it a strong XC tire. The result is hard-wearing stiffness in the center and soft gripping on the sides. Actual weight is 560g.
