The Taïpan Koloss follows the image of the Koloss range, dressed for off-road! 

Intended for "Plus" hardtail and all-mountain all suspension mountings. Can specifically be used mounted at the rear.

Its specific profile inspired by Taïpan provides a tire that rolls at high traction. Its fragmented central knobs ensure performance and reduce evacuation. While the laterals are ideally sculpted to optimise grip and breaking.


The new SpiderTech® construction coupled to a 2.80 section offers the stability and capacity required to put oneself onto the devilish track!


R&D engineer Hutchinson Tires​

« A new trend is not just adaptating what already exists. As every detail is important, we took the time to develop the “Plus” ideal tire. This is why the KOLOSS range is the result of HUTCHINSON’s MTB breakthroughs. We wanted to find the perfect marriage between right profiles, appropriate section and proper construction. It is a done deal. The KOLOSS range is dynamic, solid and adapted to preferred usage. In line with our DNA. »

Elite Enduro rider - Technical consultant Hutchinson

"The Taipan version offers comfort and absolute safety. It is ideal for bikes with clearance of 150 mm.
The best tire for riding and grip. 
The homogeneity of the rubber between the side and central studs provides a good dynamic response and very good grip. 
Its durability will seduce you thanks to a slow rebound that will last a long time. The little extra bonus for me: its compatibility with 27.5+ and 29. Something for everyone!"
