Tires are what connect you and your bike to the road—transmitting pleasurable feelings to every sense of your body as you rush towards euphoria. Good rubber can provide an unmatched level of protection in risky situations, and good ones like the Pirelli SCORPION Trail II tires “opens a path to pleasure adventure.”
Now, that’s my kind of tire.

The new tire blends off-road competition with long-distance road trips. It features high mileage longevity, consistency throughout its entire tire life and great wet-weather behavior for when things get particularly slippery.
Tread pattern found on the Trail II tires is the result of the development of the ANGEL GT tires from the tire maker. This gives the Trail II tires an aggressive patter blending features of an enduro product with those of a sport touring one. Side grooves ensure optimal rain drainage, while the binary open shapes of the central grooves provide greater stability and better traction.
The original SCORPION Trail tires were some of the first rear tires to offer the bi-compound solution from Pirelli. On The Trail II tires, Pirelli has made the technology available across the entire range of SCORPION Trail II rear tires.
Everything about the new tires were optimized for durability and comfort. The side compound was designed to balance performance on wet and dry roads. On the new tires, the contact patch area is shorter and wider, helping to reduce the wear of the tread, while ensuring greater mileage.
If you're looking for some new, quality rubber that’s up for adventure, the Pirelli SCORPION Trail II tires offer a great companion. The tire provides good performance while expertly attacking unpaved surfaces. When wrapping rubber around your equipment, be sure it’s a quality product—you won’t want any accidents now would you?
