The Captain himself, Ned Overend, was brought in to help design the perfect tire for control and predictability over any trail, just like those in his demanding XC racing days. The result is The Captain, with fast-rolling center knobs for exceptional transition and edge knobs to attack any trail. 120 TPI casing, 70a center and 60a shoulder compounds. Butyl wrapped Aramid bead to prevent low pressure burping.
