In 1984 Tom was the first to appropriate road tire technology for mountain bike tire design by introducing tread wear analysis, higher TPI, and more compliant rubber compounds. Pioneering what he called Vector Force Analysis, he developed trail-specific tread patterns and technology for MTB tires. The result was the first ever rotation directional-specific tire, as well as the first front- and rear-specific treads. The newest mountain bike tires to the Ritchey line are no strangers to VFA. Featuring a wider, reinforced casing to handle a more aggressive terrain, the Bite and Drive are the culmination of years of analysis for all mountain riding. Bite: front or rear, rotational specific tread that bites into the terrain for excellent control in all conditions. - VFA Tread Design - 7mm StrongHold bead-to-bead casing reinforcement (WCS) - Tubeless-ready (WCS) - WCS (120 TPI) or Comp (30TPI) levels - 795g (650b WCS)
The next evolutionary step. Anyone who wants to exploit the potential of modern tire technology wholeheartedly rides Tubeless. Tubeless tires guarantee the lowest rolling resistance while maintaining a very high puncture resistance. Now all sizes of Marathon Almotion are equipped for tubeless operation. The patented Microskin construction tires are also significantly lighter. Of course, a normal tube can also be used. - MicroSkin, TL Easy - OneStar
The new generation of S-Works mountain bike tires has been developed with one goal—to win races. That's why we made the S-Works Renegade perfect for fast accelerations and climbing over hard-pack terrain. It has a fast-rolling tread design with carefully shaped knob blocks to lighten the tire while maintaining enhanced cornering traction and braking effectiveness. It also features our own GRIPTON compound that maximizes mechanical grip, damps vibration, and offers unparalleled traction in either wet or dry conditions. How? Our GRIPTON compound recipe filters low and high frequencies, keeping your tires planted and you in control. - Casing: 120 TPI - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead = 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 29 x 2.1", psi 25-50, approximate weight 510g - 29 x 2.3", psi 25-50, approximate weight 575g

The latest generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher BLCK DMND 2Bliss Ready, receives sawtooth faces on the tread blocks to increase stability under load and provide additional biting edges. This in turn improves rolling speed as well as control under hard braking and cornering. Meanwhile, our proprietary GRIPTON compound improves high frequency damping, attaching the tire to the ground better on both small bumps and rough sections. The low frequencies of the rolling tire deflections pass through unfiltered, leaving no energy absorbed, keeping speed high. Once you ride the Butcher, you'll never want another tire for your gravity excursions. The new BLCK DMND casing strikes the balance between suppleness and extreme pinch flat protection. In order to descend all-out, you need as much traction as possible—the tire needs to conform and hold on to the ground, but also protect from pinch flats. In order for this to happen, only the treaded part of the tire needs to conform, grip, and dampen, while the tire base offers stability and support for steering inputs. - Casing: Center Overlap, Flip Up and Rubber Apex - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead = 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 29 x 2.3", psi 25-50 - 29 x 2.6", psi 20-40
