The side knobs have accordion folds molded into the leading edge with a solid back edge, conforming to surfaces and providing maximum grip. Imagine mini rubber Vice-Grips® on the edge of your tire, but different.
"When you lean into the cornering knobs they rotate ever so slightly, creating a better angle of attack and a broader contact surface." - VitalMTB
An internal layer of woven mesh impregnated with super soft rubber fights off punctures while helping your tires hold air longer. Oozing sealant and having to check your tire pressure twice a ride are a thing of the past.
"In our testing period we had zero flats with and without rim protection installed... Our bikes with Versus tires on them would go much longer in the garage without needing to be pumped up." - VitalMTB
All knobs feature siping on the contact points to maximize traction. Siping lets a firmer tire ride like a softer one.
The center knobs are ramped to lessen rolling resistance and, In addition to the accordion folds, the side knobs have extensive interior edging to create more bite points.
"We loved the casing feel, cornering confidence, and rolling speed." - VitalMTB

"Pop a pair of these on your bike and you won’t regret it – you’ll even have a few bucks left over for post-ride beers" - Teton Gravity Research
