Aggressive, premier and unwavering… those were words we used to describe the highly esteemed Vigilante 2.3 and they still ring true for these wider brethren. We simply dreamt of ripping trails on wider versions of our favorite aggressive mountain tire.
We wouldn’t hand you spineless claims about vast improvements unless they were true. The Vigilante 2.5/2.6 sees a massive increase in both the height and surface area of the side knobs. Tall, stout outer knobs not only able to dig deeper, but also start digging sooner in the initial stages of cornering. Wider, taller and more aggressive in every way... the new Vigilante 2.5/2.6.
- Square-lugged knobs deliver unwavering traction, yet with added height to ensure they dig even deeper into loose, unpredictable terrain.
- Updated siping arrangement places emphasis on cornering forces, while the larger knobs don’t discriminate against shamelessly forceful cornering or reckless braking.
- Increased circumferential spacing allows the tread to remain clear in sloppy conditions, while still keeping the casing protected from spiteful rocks.
- Optimized around i29 rims
