Hutchinson Cobra 29x2.25 Mountain Tire
The Cobra is one of nature's fastest, most feared creatures...no surprise that Hutchinson chose it to be this awesome mountain bike tire's namesake. The Hutchinson Cobra 29 x 2.25 has a nice, wide footprint and can run at reduced pressures so you'll get unprecedented dig-in on corners. Plus, high center knob density makes this an excellent breakaway tire that will not fail you on steep climbs or on serious hi-speed downhilling.
  • High knob density to optimize dry terrain speed
  • Tall lateral knobs mean excellent cornering, even in mud
  • MRC HIGH compound is puncture resistant and super grippy

      Comments about Hutchinson Cobra 29x2.25 Mountain Tire:

      TIRE SPECIFICATION WAS GOOD ON PAPER, NOT THE CASE IN REAL LIFE. NO WAY CLOSE TO THE 2.25 WIDTH, I MOUNTED ON TWO DIFFERENT RIMS ( velocity blunt sl & stan's crest)AT THE RECOMMEND 29psi, AT THE WIDEST POINT (LITTLE NOBS NOT CASING) THE TIRE MEASURE LESS THAN 2.1 ON BOTH RIMS, 2.089 & 2.093 MEASURE WITH DIGITAL CALIPERS.

      FOR A 2.25 WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT, JUST OK FOR 2.0 TIRE.

      I WAS REPLACING A 2.0 SPECIALIZED TIRE THAT WAS BIGGER.

      FOR THE PRICE I STILL WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT KNOWNING IT WAS A 2.0 TIRE.

      Comments about Hutchinson Cobra 29x2.25 Mountain Tire:

      I have put a few winter months' riding on these tires and they are a great value for the money. I'm running them front and back for XC rides and they have handled frozen ground and icy ruts admirably (as well as what little snow we've had this year). Can't wait for the ground to soften up a little bit; they sure look like they'll shed mud well.

        Used with the tubeless Stans system. I had no problems getting it to seat on the rim. With other tires the bead would not want to seal.
        Tire seemed very well made and was a good compromise between weight and durability. Traction is very good.

            Comments about Hutchinson Cobra 29x2.25 Mountain Tire:

            Got just about 100 miles on this and discovered three slices in the sidewall -- not from cuts but from thread separation. I've had this happen before on tires with more than 2000 miles. This tire literally lasted a handful of weekends.

            Pretty good for hard, dry conditions

                Comments about Hutchinson Cobra 29x2.25 Mountain Tire:

                I got a pair of these Cobra's to go with my new bike. They shaved 8 ounces of each wheel, so I felt that was a considerable upgrade to the OEM tires.

                They are not quite the general purpose, all-around tires I was hoping for. I think they will excel in dry/hard conditions, bu I think the tread blocks are too closely packed and small sized to provide good grip if you are really trying to dig into soft or wet ground.

                I generally don't hit the trails when it is wet, anyway, so I think they will be fine. For value-priced tires, I think they are a solid purchase.

                Tread pattern is great. Good knobs for traction in both dry and wet conditions. Smooth rolling and good cornering. Hell of a time getting them on the wheels though. Went through 2 tire irons, a mutli-tool, a skewer,both new tubes and 3 patches just getting the tire onto the rim.
