BASANITE

Loose berms, choppy trails, and rugged rock gardens stand no chance against the Basanite. The Basanite is designed as a rear tire with ramped knobs for improved speed that alternate in shape and size for braking control. Alternating shoulder lugs and central knobs provide grip at any angle. The large knobs all include hatch marks, or cupped profiles, improving grip on harder-packed terrain. For optimal performance, pair the Basanite with the Vulcanite on looser terrain or with the Tectonite in harder packed conditions.

The Basanite is available in both Trail and Enduro versions with casing, construction, and tread compounds specific to the intended use. Trail models feature our Stage TR Armor construction for efficient climbing, predictable cornering, and long days on singletrack. Enduro models feature our Stage EN Armor construction for a tire that provides grip through blind corners, confidence over rock gardens, and the ability to cruise back up the trail. Both Stage TR Armor and Stage EN Armor constructions are Tubeless Ready.
