Intense Microknobby MkII

Distilled team rider David Holzer has been using the older version of this tire for some time now and swears by them. They are fast-rolling and hook up well on concrete as well as hard-packed dirt, and Dave tells us he hardly ever punctures them, even with the glass and street junk littering his local NYC street spots. 

Intense Tire Systems have made some improvements and dubbed it the MkII. The most noticeable advancement is the centre rows of knobs being inverted to give an even faster rolling surface. This little mod should make an already quick tire into a lightning-fast tire. The grippy micronkobs are kept where they are needed, on the periphery. The weight is very low for a street tire too, which should help keep the overall weight down. Dave will give his impressions on the tire as soon as his team Commencal frame gets built up, so stay tuned for a full report.
