Tioga Announces New Front-Specific Tire

Jun 24, 2019
by TiogaUSA  

PRESS RELEASE: Tioga


Tioga officially introduces the Edge 22, a front-specific tire with instant cornering edge engagement and double the cornering bite. When it comes to cornering, two cornering edges are better than one. Hear us out. Current designs rely primarily on the side knobs for cornering, which work best only when lean angles go above a particular range. However, considering that gaining cornering edge engagement as soon as you enter the corner is always beneficial, we created a tread that grabs early and keeps holding over a broader range of lean angles.


The original design retains the familiar side knob placement but realigns the middle tread to create the necessary spacing to add accessible cornering edges in the center that work together with the sides to amplify cornering grip. Without adequate center spacing, or with knobs occupying the middle, cornering edge engagement of the central knobs will either be very slight or none at all. The Edge 22’s design pays off with central knobs that hook up instantly upon entering a corner, and once the lean angle reaches the critical range, the side edges kick in. Along with the center, both edges dig into the terrain simultaneously for twice the cornering bite. The Edge 22 indeed locks in early and stays locked in—our test riders find themselves not hunting for grip mid-cornering by exaggerating their lean angles, or feeling moments of vagueness before the knobs hook up.


Cornering edge engagement over varying lean angles.

It's OK to be brake happy
The shape and positioning of Edge 22 knobs provide plenty of power to reign in control. The two rows of central knobs align within the tire’s contact patch, where plenty of accessible braking edges are ready to slow you down. Additionally, while the leading edge ramp on each knob enhances rolling smoothness, during braking, the ramps shift to reinforce each knob, preventing the knobs from buckling under load for precise and reliable braking performance. Combined, the Edge 22 has ample front-end stopping power at the ready.

Available braking edges over contact patch in red.

The Edge 22 comes in two casing options: Magnum120 and FlexGrid60. Magnum120 is a lightweight 120 TPI carcass reinforced with a thin bead-to-bead protection layer covering the sidewalls and under the tread. FlexGrid60 is a robust 60 TPI casing with a thicker cut and abrasion protection inserted within its sidewalls. Both will have Synergy Dual Compound Rubber with softer durometer on the sides for better conformity and harder in the center for lower rolling resistance.

 What's with all the off-trail, cryptobiotic soil riding? Probably will leave tracks there for 3-5 years and another 20 before it fully grows back.

 This should be the top comment. Cool a new front tire, we're all going to read and talk about the missing middle until you head spins. But the crypto should be the largest of concern. Lame.

 Is this something that is commonly known about in desert regions? I live on the east coast and had no idea what you were talking about. Had to look up what cryptobiotic soil even was.

 @Tomternal: Same here. I also live on the east coast and was unfamiliar until a trip to Utah where it was explained NOT to disrupt this particular type of soil
  • + 42
 @Tomternal: Not all desert areas, but definitely specific to the Colorado Plateau region. It's a pretty unique set of microbes and bacteria that can convert this super high silica (sandstone) sand into something that other flora can utilize. It also drastically helps reduce soil runoff from surface areas and dust. The dust from the Moab mtb, general public and Texas Wheelchair drivers is so extensive it actually accelerates the spring runoff of the nearby San Juan Mountain range by coating the white snow with a fine layer of pink dust that absorbs more sunlight.

Ultimately, though, it just shows disrespect to an area that historically has always been considered dead, worthless and awful. Finally Americans, and really the world as a whole, have found the desert to be the opposite and try very hard to protect it's delicate balance of life and death. This is reminiscent of an older mindset that we are better off without.

 Looks like a good tire. I don't run DHF's because they don't have cornering knobs that bite at moderate lean angles, which is my most common lean angle. The DHF gets all drifty at moderate angles. This one looks like it has moderate lean angles dialed. I'd try it.
  • + 8
 That's exactly why i will try the Assegai next. I have the same problem, i've found i like the feel of round tires more.
  • + 6
 @Muckal: We are tire brothers. Assegai is my next tire too, just waiting on the EXO+ 29er to come available. Currently running a Magic Mary.
  • - 3
 Minion doesn’t bite at moderate lean angles?! Moderate or intermediate? Because Assagais side knobs are not placed more to the side than ones of the minion, so how could that fall out of the sky? I won’t be surprised if Assegai would share the fate of Ardent or Swampthing (that Peaty was wildly promoting only to get back to Wet Screams which then led to Shorties) because they already made a prototype of the new tyre with intermediate knobs that has the channel that assegai doesn’t have. No channel - no way for side knobs to dig in deep, the pressure gets spread on too many knobs with intermediates lying so close to the side knobs. So my guess Assegai will not live too long on WC circuit. It’s a larvae phase of Maxxis attempt at what Schwalbe and Bontrager achieved with altwrnating 2-3 center knob design. I don’t need to ride Assegai to know edge grip of Minion and Highroller is not there. Assegai is a tyre for people who need precision on intermediate lean angles (that mentioned rubber doesn’t offer) and don’t mind getting loose on the edge but must know very well where that edge is. Especially on hardpack. Schwalbe will surely be beefing up the knobs on Mary with experience they are now gathering with Ed Current as MM is absolutely excellent as long as digging into hardpack is not involved.
  • + 3
 @ShredlyMcShredface: It's available through BTI I believe. I have one sitting at home waiting to be mounted up.
  • - 1
 @WAKIdesigns: as you said the MM problem is either hardpack or as any tire with taller knobs on big rocks if you corner on them

the assegai will only survive if the demand is there, but i don't see to many out in the trails or races around here. i used to only ride maxxis, but with the price beeing that high in either dh or dd casing in 3c i now have been riding with schwalbe, specialized and now michelin.

the ed current front has caught my eye too, and the price is good
  • + 3
 @tiagomano: For intermediate tyre with smooth lean over that can handle hardpack look no further than Bontrager SE4. It has also ridiculously predictable break away. It is hard to believe what such tyre can deliver. It may not have the edge, but it’s tons of fun making you want to play on the edge of grip which can improve your cornering skills. Perhaps not the best choice for full on DH, especially with lack of thick sidewalls but a trail bike dream for sure.
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: i currently have michelin wild enduro on my bike , and i like them because i ride my bike in a large amount of different terrains , only feel like the front one(2.4) would be a bit wider as i like a bigger front tire

i can't ride with thin sidewalls, other than the fact that they flat too much, i hate the amount of air that i need to put on the tire so that i don't feel the tire deflecting under cornering force, Even tough i am not heavy at 74kg i am a pretty aggressive rider, and i'm currently riding with 21psi front 25 rear. used to ride 24-28 but when i put this on my wheels and asked my friend who rides ews with their sponsorship and he suggested this pressure, after trying that (and other pressure numbers) i ended up where he said, only raising a bit if i go to a bikepark
  • + 1
 @tiagomano: the wild enduros grip"s is excellent (gumx frint&rear) but they need cushcore if you"re a super hard charger.. I have survived couple races without cushcore but I think sidewall support could be improved.. This tioga though, somebody will review it hopefully but no center lugs will put a lot of pressure on side lugs, rolling resistance will be interesting to know...
  • + 1
 @Lagr1980: i have the Magic x on front that is the softer compound, but have not felt the need for more sidewall, even did a dh race 2 weeks ago and runed the same pressures. only needed to had like 2 psi on the back 2 months ago for an enduro race where it had a 2 meter drop to a landing where i wold turn a bit and climb another rock drop and then i felt it rotate a bit, but other than that nothing

how much do you weigh?

Also i have 29 inch wheels, where i feel i can get away with a bit less pressure
  • - 2
 @tiagomano: how much do you weigh? I am 77kg. Just been to Hafjell and as I was getting better at railing berms through the day, I had to up the pressure from 1.7bar with procore to settle at 1.9-2.0 otherwise double down aggressor was crying for help. I upped the DD DHF on front to 1.7 too. Off course that became worse on “natural” trails but at the same time once you gwt ridden into them you find patches of root/rock free dirt to push your tyres into, and make sure you skip everything else.
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: 73-74kg in bar think that i run 1.5-1.7 no inserts, just a good amount of sealant (i didn't mesure, but by the marks on the bottle i pored 200ml on the rear) in a dt swiss ex511
  • + 1
 @tiagomano: 78ish Kg.. Tires were good overall without cush core but I thought I was getting too much side play on the rear.. they survived ews madeira though... Magix is weird shit, its not softer that gumx, slow rebound may be but not softer overall..
  • + 1
 @Lagr1980:yes, magic x is a bitt complicated, but is the better version
what size and how wide rims do you ride? you weigh more, but it's not that much of a diference

the new tires from michelin are better than what is on the market, better carcass and the rubber is different, rode the bike of my friend a bit, but didn't have them on mine as it is still prototype

 @tiagomano: 27 & 30mm id rims.. 27.5...i am a poor line picker and not as smooth as I should be.. Exo tires last me 1 run down a decent natural trail with small rocky sections.. Cant help it.. DD and Schw SG are ok
  • + 1
 @Lagr1980: Yes, with 27.5 i ran higher pressure.
that's probably the diference, even though i tend to ride hard and push my bike, i try to find the smother/faster line, only used to flat when i got tired or some sniper rock if i ended up off line, but haven't had a flat since august i think

don't know who can run exos, i had to put 35+ psi so that the tire wouldn't fold on corners when i had one like 3 years ago(27.5 at the time)

 @tiagomano: Have a look at the Michelin E-Wild tire then, it is basically the enduro tire in 2.6 and 2.8 widths. Solid sidewall and proper rubber. Weight around 1kg isn't bad either.
Ah just saw you are running 622mm wheels...unfortunately the e-wild only exists in the smaller 584mm diameter size for the moment.
  • + 2
 @tiagomano: if you run inserts you can get away with running singleply tires. I run a magic mary front in the singleply casing with the procore 15psi/1bar and 5bar/74psi in the procore. At the back I run a Maxxis DHRII 2.8 in EXO with cushcore and a tube at 15psi/1bar. Not the fastest rolling setup but loads of grip. For the bikepark I add 2 psi to the rear.

 @Muckal: that's not me, if you want you can have a look at my videos.
I ride in loads of diferent places, and tend to stick with that pressure, only adjusting if needed.

 @SintraFreeride:
Never liked single ply tires. And when i had wheels with deaneasy set up i also didn't like it
A proper tire with the right pressure for it is the way to go for me.

 @SintraFreeride: even I, the troll who doesn’t ride, will make a single ply tire cry for mercy on a too short 160 bike when riding berms and DH tracks. I ride with procore in the rear.
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: I think that tires like those would be good in a bike like a Specialized epic evo, or at maximum a light duty trail bike. if you can ride with a 1ply tire on a enduro or dh bike you are not pushing that much, even with an insert it will be way too easy to slash it open on a rock
  • - 1
 @tiagomano: It's not about slashing sidewalls on my side. It is about puncturing them, burping sealant and feeling wobbly in g-outs. A typical puncture of a tubeless tyre is one hole at the top and one hole by the tire bead. And the latter is extremely hard to fix, often making the tire useless.
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: i know that, i've said above that i had to ride with 35+ psi for it not to fold, i was talking about single ply with inserts ! if you have one of the bigger ones the tire doesn't fold as much

 @conoat: XR4 and SE4 works good on short travel bikes where casing stability is not necessary. Knobs are also too short and don’t have enough grip to make you be able to require this stability. What is stupid is 1ply casings on tyres like minion or magic mary. So is using those tyres on short travel bikes. Bontrager tyres are some of the best if not the best. Learn to think and ride.

 @conoat: you are a moron with minority complex issues. Let me educate you. The thinnest sidewalls are found on Maxxis Lite, Schwalbe Evo, Continental speed. Examples: Thunderburt, speed king. XC Marathon/ gravel. Then we have a bit thicker Evo Snake Skin, Maxxis EXC. they are still toilet paper. Then comes standard Maxxis classic 1ply casing which is equal to all Bontrager XR tyres. Above that we have Exo, which is equal to SE from Bonty. And it works well on intermediate tyres on short travel bikes. Now smarten up.

 Tioga, you need center knobs for straight line braking. I hate to see what happens when someone is riding down loose over hard (intermediate) terrain with a panic stop at the bottom. That front tire will lock up up then slide out, mark my words. Your tires grip way better when not sliding Wink

Bike tires generally don't need weird knob shapes to achieve their goal. Most of the time angled leading edges with flat braking edges will do the trick. Rear tires need that center braking knob (DHR2) because the rear wheel counts on straight line braking moreso than the front. The front relies more cornering traction, but that said, you still need something down the middle (HR2) because not every part of the trail is a corner. Given that so much of your braking is done prior to the entrance to the turn, you don't want a drifty front tire in those situations. Those inner and outside cornering knobs are too tightly spaced together for anything other than hardpack, then the lack of squared off edges and wide surface area of the larger knobs will allow that tire to drift in anything soft.

There is a reason why these oddball shapes don't exist in the MX world, because they generally are performance driven and don't make make baseless claims about gimmicky tire designs, hence the square block. Unfortunately, mountain bike tire manufacturers still sometimes throw on knob shapes without anything to back it up other than "it looks good on a store shelf". Most mtb tire manufacturers get it, some do not.

And we have thousands of new bicycles every year going to be sold and resold, cycle of life. We all can't be rangers that protect the land, keyboard Warriors that defend process of thought. It's petty to see everyone driving to the trailhead, the stigmatized assumption of cycling; a poor man's last resort or a rich man's leasure activity, and in our first world society, we are rich and we don't care, so as long as we are perpetuating a positive disposition about the f*ckin' environment, everyone come shred these delicate spots!!

 I suspect Carter of blkmrkt bikes. As others pointed out, they are on a blk mrkt roam, profile bmx cranks on a mountain bike and it kinda looks like him?
