The Butcher is as appropriate on a downhill WC winning bike as on your regular trail bike. A true all round intermediate tyre it can handle dry, wet, and everything in between. Wide and massively supported shoulder knobs provide loads of confidence in turns while the wide interiror channels help mud to disperse. The Butcher is a perfect front tyre and one that is absolutely at home on technical trails deep in the forest.
The Gripton compound is designed to improve damping to minimise vibration, keeping the tyre in better contact with the trail and providing a secure, confident ride. The new Grid Trail casing is stiffer and allows for better handling at lower pressures, as well as substantially reducing the chance of pinch punctures and flats. 2Bliss technology allows for easy tubeless setup to make the most of the tyre's capabilities.
One of the best trail tres out there, and preety good value too. Ideal for hard-charging trail riders who want confident handling in all conditions.
