The Panaracer Fire UST builds upon the outstanding Fire XC Pro and adds UST technology without losing any of the excellent handling characteristics of the Fire XC Pro. Another thing to note is the weight, or lack thereof. Considering the amount of tread and grip this tire produces, it is amazing that the overall weight of this tire in the UST version comes in at a scant 730 grams.
The well-designed square knobs of the Panaracer Fire XC Pro delivers excellent traction and cornering in just about any terrain. Silca compound added to the treads improves tread life as well as increases durability and grip. A narrow BAX cord woven into the casing at a high density provides lightness and flexibility with a resistance to cuts and abrasions. We have found the Panaracer XC Pro tire a great all-around aggressive tire with a bonus of longer tread life compared with similar tires.
