Building on the success of The Crow tire, the Raven features virtually the same design with the same fast rolling hard durameter tread and softer durameter side knobs. The differnce being, these soft side nobs are raised higher for more grip. With the added grip, you also add weight. When decideding between the Crown and Raven, you will need to determine if you prefer the added grip or added weight. The Raven is also available in both 2.0 or 2.2 widths with the latter making a great light wieght all mountain tire for non-muddy conditions.
Under the Raven's tread is a supple 120tpi casing and large air volume. Incredibly strong butyl coated beads are beefier than most UST beads, are used to ensure reliability when the tire is run at it's recommended air pressure range.
