• 3/32x.790  .472 Drilled Full Hub, Treated Piranha Rubber
3/32x.790 Drilled BFH Piranha Treated.   Big full hub Piranhas have the big diameter hub with no boss area.  The rubber is glued along the entire width of the rim.  The result is a tire with a low rolling resistance.   These are the lightest big full tires available.  Alpha has a proprietary process of chemically treating the rubber to alter it's characteristics. The treated Piranha rubber is a bit firmer, and has a bit less grip. But it also is longer wearing  and because it has less rolling resistance, is faster on the straight-aways and in the bankings. Try it if the regular Piranhas seem a bit too soft and grippy. These tires are for those of you like the "euro" style hubs.  When regular Piranha tires are a bit too soft and grippy, try the new chemically treated Piranhas. The treated rubber is firmer, has a bit less grip, but also is longer wearing and produces greater straitaway speeds Drilling the 18 holes in the rims, removes about .2 grams per pair.   Lighter is better!  .
