The concept for the Crown Gem is a fast, hard-hitting, directional trail tire that’s got enough in the tank-especially if you select the extra protection offered by the Synthesis sidewall version-to take on rough Enduro events, with all tire testing action that this exciting gravity discipline brings. The Crown Gem uses a full volume carcass, with a rounded profile. In this case, the shape is a bit squarer, thanks to the position of the angled edge blocks. The siped and grooved tire treads on the Gem are square in shape and sweep gently backwards from either side of the center. Some chamfering of the leading edges help ensure speed and smooth ride. The Crown Gem is designed to fit front or rear, providing drive and steering if required, or to be fitted with a variety of other VEE Tire Co. treads to custom tune the grip to your liking and the demands of your trails.
