Solid Rear Trail Tire
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Love this tire. The 2.4" tire was great but needs a bit more volume. This tire addresses that issue and keeps all the same great characteristics of the 2.4". So far the Exo+ casing has held up great (I am however using cush core). Straight line braking is this tire's greatest quality. Cornering is excellent as well. Slides around slightly but once you've leaned into the corner fully it digs in and corners like the best of them. Only situation that I've found where it's weak is on loose rocky off camber situations during climbing the center tread slides a bit which might mean a hike a bike if you don't carefully pick a line, but that's nitpicking. Overall a very solid tire and you can't go wrong if you're looking for all out dh grip for the steepest and most rowdy trails.
