Hookworm vs Urban Taraxagum review
In this entry we are going to compare and review Maxxis Hookworm vs Continental Urban Taraxagum tyres. Both manufactured by different brands, Maxxis and Continental respectively, these tyres have been designed to be used for different purposes. Whilst Maxxis Hookworm is better for bmx activities, Continental Urban Taraxagum is a great choice if your needs are more aligned to Race Tires activities.
As the original urban assault tire, the Maxxis Hookworm is no stranger to the mean streets. The bead-to-bead tread design provides durability and traction in harsh environments. The Hookworm is also a great solution for cargo bikes, pedicabs, or any application where a tough tire is needed.
The tire made from dandelions, for the sustainable lifestyle. Grown and made in Germany. Comfortable race construction – ideal for the urban ride.AboutThe Urban Taraxagum by Continental is the first serial bicycle tire made from dandelion rubber, for which we established the brand mark Taraxagum™. The project is embedded in a comprehensive sustainability strategy, covering economic, ecological and social aspects. Through significantly shorter distances from the fields and our European tire plants we reduce efforts in logistics and transport and use resources more efficiently. Another important contribution to sustainability – in series.
