A true dual-purpose tire that rolls smoothly on paved roads, but has knobs that dig into the surface when it gets slippery. Unlike most mixed-terrain tires, the Pumpkin Ridge’s knobs are big enough so they don’t squirm, but there is much space in between to clear mud. We distributed the knobs so that the tire always is 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. The Pumpkin Ridge is tubeless-compatible in both standard and extralight casings. When used with tubes, we recommend Schwalbe SV12 or SV14A tubes. Made in Japan.
