Dirty Dan - 50mm

Schwalbe’s mud specialist, Dirty Dan is now also available as 29-inch tire.

Dirty Dan, Schwalbe’s solution for deep, muddy terrain, is now available as a 29-inch tire. The mud specialist runs in top form on extremely slushy ground. The rugged tread provides great grip on soft, loose undergrounds. Wide intermediate spaces ensure the self-cleaning and brake traction qualities required under these conditions.
Dirty Dan is available in the sizes 29×2.00 (50-622) and 26×2.00 (50-559) from specialised bicycle retailers. Price: 54.90 Euros.
Apart from the narrow X-Country version, Dirty Dan is optionally available as a Downhill and a SuperGravity version. Equipped, in addition, with “Curve Claws” for extremely banked surfaces and the soft, really sticky VertStar compound, it is Schwalbe’s special tire for deep and muddy terrain in Downhill and Enduro races. Available sizes: 26×2.35 (60-559) and 27.5×2.35 (60-584).
