Mitas tyre recommendation

The pine forests of Sparrow Hill and Kowen are known for their fast flowing trails. Due to the hard and typically dry surface we recommend a tyre with a low but consistent profile that allows maximum ‘feel’ through the corners while providing low rolling resistance. Put away those aggressive, knobby tyres, the ground is too hard for them to get any ‘bite’. The Mitas Scylla with TEXTRA sidewall protection is the ideal tyre, both front and rear for this course.
