Intense Tyre Systems XC System C3 Folding MTB Tyre

System 1 is designed for XC use. It features a large air volume casing with widely spaced knobs for rapid clearance of mud and excellent control in loose conditions.

System 2 is a versatile XC tyre capable of performing in mixed conditions. The continuous row of center knobs provide very low rolling resistance while the side knobs offer plenty of bite when leaning the bike hard.

System 3 is designed to be used as a rear tyre in dry conditions. With its MicroKnobby center tread and aggressive side knobs it offers superb traction and great cornering control.

System 4 is a very versatile tyre capable of handling steep climbs, gnarly descents, and aggressive cornering. It truly is a do all tyre. The tyre's casing is squared, giving the knobs a greater contact surface for added traction and control.

System 5 offers great performance in soft to intermediate conditions. The chevron knob pattern is fast rolling and offers plenty of bite. This tyre is used by the elite riders on the 4X World Cup circuit and for XC riding.

Intense Tyre Systems XC System C3 Folding MTB Tyre Features:

  • LSG Casing - Low Specific Gravity is an all NEW rubber compound which has been introduced to reduce overall tyre weight by 18% without affecting the tyres performance or durability. All ITS tyres are now compatible with tyre sealants.
  • 1 Ply Casing - 1 ply tires are constructed with a single layer for fast rolling and lightweight tires.
  • Folding Bead - By using strands of Aramid Kevlar fibers in the bead the weight of the tire is reduced and the tire can be folded.
  • Compound - C3 - Intense's original and proprietary Cross Country Compound, featuring excellent traction and durability. The formula is still kept secret.
  • Weight: 490grams (1) / 468grams (2) / 505grams (3) / 650grams (4) / 490grams (5)

Rated 3 out of 5 by grippy its quite wide for a 2.1 and the block treads on the side have trouble with rocks, had many washouts on tedge, upright though it grips well and rolls fast on tarmac plus the weight is minimal with folding bead. however sidewalls are weak link and after my inner tube blew and ripped the sidewall? my previous system 1 also suffered from easy cuts. 05 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ottimo copertone leggero e performante I copertoni sono di ottima fattura, costano poco e in più sono pure scontati, e non ho pagato le spese di spedizione perché l' ordine superava i 50'00 euro 22 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gefällt mir sehr gut! Super Reifen ! Ich habe ihn bekommen und gleich raufgezogen. (Vorne und hinten) Danach bin ich gleich im Wald ( feuchtes Herbstlaub ), auf der Straße und auf Sandwegen probe gefahren. Der Reifen hat guten Grip auf feuchtem Boden, im Wald auf Laub, sowie auf der feuchten Straße! Ich habe mich extra in die Kurve gedrückt, er fasst zu! Auf Sandwegen lief auch alles ohne Probleme. Der Rollwiderstand ist auch gering. Dadurch, das er jetzt reduziert war, habe ich einen super Reifen für wenig Geld bekommen! Er fässt sich sehr weich an, ich bin gespannt wie lange er hält. 08 November 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Surprisingly good front end grip System 5 2,25 - use it on dry pack terrain, wasn´t expecting much but quite impressed. Not too heavy, doesn't drag a lot, corners quite decently and seeing the knob spacing, I'm assuming it'll do well on light mud. The rubber is quite soft, though, wear shows quickly, but as knobs are tall, it's not dramatic, however I wouldn't recommend it for the rear unless you want to be changing tyres frequently, but for 16 euros, you can afford one every other season. It's really a very nice tyre all round, I suppose that durability is the only issue. 07 November 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by You get what you pay for... Low price tempted me but 200km later and the outer lugs are tearing the tyre apart (rear only, front is ok). Probably my mistake to use these on hard, rocky terrain so lesson learned and next time will sacrifice grip for durability. 06 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tyres Great tyres bought at a great price Lightweight & strong.....bought for a friend, I think he's happy with them as i'm sure he'd let me know otherwise! :) 17 September 2013

Answer: 
No, these Intense tyres are Clincher tyres but are Tubeless Ready, so can be used on wheels which have been converted from clincher to tubeless using an appropriate kit

Answer: 
I'm using them with tubes. Don't know if they'll leak too much if you use them tubeless, but they are to be used with tubes as per product description.

Answer: 
These tyres are not front/rear specific and can be used on either the front or rear wheels.

The tread is directional however; care needs to be taken when mounting the tyre that the tread is facing the correct direction.
