Tough tire with awesome traction
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I've always been a Maxxis guy but gave this tire a try on my teenage son's bike. He rides his bike hard which gets him flats pretty regularly, and he's torn a couple tires this year, too. I figured he'd be the perfect guy to stress test a new tire and this one has passed with flying colors... so far. Knobby enough tracks and hold really well in corners and on the loose, rocky stuff, while still having a reasonably low rolling resistance. This could be our go-to tire for his hard-pounding, high-flying style of riding.
