The XR4 Team Issue is the no-compromise Tubeless Ready mountain bike tire designed for quickness in the gnarliest cross country terrain. When the pro circuit demands an aggressive tread for loose trails, Trek Factory Racing opts for the lateral cupped blocks, long shoulder blocks, and buttressed tread block edges of the XR4 Team Issue.
- Aggressive tread provides confident traction in demanding terrain
- Excels in loose and rocky conditions
- Tubeless Ready (TLR) tire is engineered for easy tubeless setup and puncture protection
- Inner Strength casing is lightweight sidewall protection that's supple and strong
Tubeless-ready tires are compatible with both tubeless-ready and standard rims. When the tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The tire can also be used with a tube if you mount it on a standard, non-tubeless-ready rim.
