Cross tyres - at SIP Scootershop

Rough off-road tyres that make a trip into uneven terrain perfect. For optimal grip, there are different tread requirements depending on the terrain.

Which tyre manufacturers are there for cross tyres?

From the abundance of manufacturers and brands, we have built up a range that, in our opinion, combines the best manufacturers, the most sizes and the widest range of use. The manufacturers are deliberately not the cheapest noname brands, but all companies whose decades of scooter and motorbike experience come into play in the development of scooter tyres:

  • HEIDENAUMade in Germany is the name of the game at Reifenwerke HEIDENAU! They have the highest standards of production and quality.

  • MICHELINMICHELIN has a long history in scooter tyres.

  • PIRELLIAs early as 1872, Battista Pirelli founded the PIRELLI brand, which is still one of the leading tyre brands worldwide. With the SC30 scooter tyre as original equipment on various Vespa models, PIRELLI established itself in the scooter sector. PIRELLI is one of the largest tyre manufacturers in the world.

  • KENDA: KENDA was founded in 1962 as a bicycle tyre manufacturer. As a leading original equipment manufacturer for scooter manufacturers such as Peugeot and Kymco, KENDA tyres are produced under very high quality standards.

  • SOBEK, DURO, VEE RUBBER: Cross tyres for scooters are rare. Therefore, we are happy about every brand that produces such tyres and we always include brands in our programme.

Technical tip: How do I build a spike tyre for ice racing?

The basis is a cross tyre, e.g. the KENDA K770. Drill a hole in each stud with a 3 mm drill bit. Then screw a 6x40 mm self-tapping screw into each hole. The screws should protrude about 15 mm from the cleat. Use slightly shorter screws at the sides so that they do not touch the fork at the front or the engine at the back. Now glue an old fire hose or something similar over the heads of the bolts so that the hose is not rubbed through.
