The CST Heathen is an excellent choice for aggressive riding in hardpack to loose conditions. The center of the tire features low, widely-spaced knobs to aid in debris shedding. The shoulder knobs have a tall profile to really dig in when the bicycle is leaned over. The Heathen is available in wire or folding bead versions. The folding bead version features a dual-compound tread for improved grip, and our EPS (Exceptional Puncture Safety) puncture protection.
