Terrene is adding another tire to their lineup: the “McFly.” This new plus tire will fill the 2.8″ hole in their line in both the 27.5″ and 29″ diameters. It’s specifically designed to be a faster rolling, less-aggressive tire than the burlier “Chunk” model.
“Combine great acceleration and breaking with stout predictable side knobs and you have a tire that you can ride fast and hard in and out of turns without expending all your energy moving forward and still break hard when you need to. To me, McFly is the ability to fly down the trail with confidence,” said Terrene tire designer Anders Broste.
More information from Terrene’s press release:
Throughout its entire line, Terrene aims to simplify the tire buying process by eliminating confusion and guesswork and delivering quality tires in two effective but simplified builds available in each model. Light tires are a supple 120tpi casing, and Tough tires are a 60tpi casing with reinforcements specific to the needs of each model and the intended use case of that tire model. Continuing with this, McFly will be available in both Light and Tough versions and will be completely tubeless ready.
“McFly is bringing us closer to creating a complete tire line, adding a choice of a lighter tire with less rolling resistance than our high-traction Chunk model,” said Tim Krueger.
McFly will be available in both light and tough versions in 27.5×2.8 and 29×2.8. Light is a 1 ply dual durometer tire intended for less aggressive or weight conscious riders, while Tough incorporates a full bead to bead TekShield protection layer and a tougher casing for riders that want a quality, reliable tire with no compromise on durability. McFly is available for $80 in either casing, tubeless ready with an aramid folding bead, and will be available this July.
So where is the “review” part of this post? Very little heard on this tire on the interwebs…
