Hard to tell from the pict. Finish color looks like the MTB version. Take the bull by the horns, call their toll-free number and ask.

If you read the description, you would find that there is no mention of road. THere is, however, the mention of XC, mtbr.com, Muddy conditions, etc to key in to the fact that you are indeed looking at the mountain ones.

They often lift stock descriptions straight from the mfr info. Yes I read it; still no guarantee that's what it is. Always best to call the vendor if there's the slightest question - -even with PP's very good return policy.

I believe that is the mountain version, although I'd probably call to make sure too.
