The ultimate cyclocross tire is also a great choice for mixed-surface rides. Named after an iconic ‘cross course at the foot of the Cascade Mountains, the Steilacoom uses our revolutionary dual-purpose knobby tread. The tire is always supported by the same amount of rubber, whether it’s rolling forward or leaning into a turn. This gives you uniform grip at all times – whether on a muddy cyclocross course or during a paved descent with ultra-fast hairpin turns. The result is a true dual-purpose knobby that excels in mud and snow, yet on pavement, it’s faster than most road tires.
