While the Crown F-REE is a great all-around tire, it’s most effective up front. There, the small chevronshape centre knobs help the tire maintain speed on the straights, complete with sipes to seek out all available grip. The center tread area works closely with broad paddle shaped tread blocks to ensure even traction. This focused front tire design lends an unusual and intriguing appearance to the Crown F-REE. This tire utilizes a semi-rounded carcass cross-section to promote a feeling of confidence when leaning on the edges in fast, loose turns. Because it’s not completely squared-off like the hard hitting Flow Rumba, it means the Crown F-REE’s center section touches the trail first and helps keep rolling resistance to a minimum for a full volume trail front tire.
