Durable but heavy
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My jerk friend, who is a DH rider, made me get these, but I am XC rider--he didn't explain to me the weight and I was too much of a noob to ask. The tire is bomb proof. But each one weighs over a kilo. I'm riding on lots of lava rock in Central Oregon region. I'm going to keep this tire on because of how amazingly grippy it is as well as its durability. But I wouldn't recommend doing an XC race with them.
