The Onza Porcupine Tire is Back 2

A refresh on an old favorite, Onza has resurrected the Porcupine tire with modern tread and compounds but kept some serious throwback appeal with skinwall and white rubber options.

The Onza Porcupine Tire is Back

The Porcupine is back!

Onza is happy to revise a modern, open and easy-rolling all-mountain tire, beloved by many. Staying true to the idea of the Porcupine tire of the 90s, the placement of the tread lugs is based on the appearance of a porcupine: spiky knobs for extra grip. Also, just like the original Porcupine, tire models are available with black and white tread rubber as well as a skinwall version.


Casings in black and skinwall are available for all tire sizes and widths. The Porcupine is currently available in a dual compound as to balance maximum cornering traction while maintaining good rolling speed and prolong tire wear. Outer, cornering knobs are a softer, 45a compound while the center knobs use a firmer, 60a compound. Additional models in our new GRC casing (Gravity-Casing) and soft compound 50 (50a/45a) to follow!
