Ride feel is great, poor traction
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a review for the Morsa tire with the TRAIL casing, not the EN casing. I originally bought the Morsa DH to use in the back, however, I was sent the wrong tire and just ran with it because we are on a tight schedule for a road trip. I want to like this tire. It's really fast rolling and the 120 TPI feels great—it's super supple and cancels out a lot of the small trail chatter. But the traction is pretty poor and the profile is essentially a semi-slick. If you ride hardpack all the time, it'd be great. The braking traction on anything other than hardpack is horrible, and the tread can't hold onto anything if there's any moisture. The TRAIL casing is very flimsy and unsupportive. It's been awhile since rode EXO casings but I remember them feeling similar. The tire folds a lot when pushing into turns. They seated up nicely with a floor pump and ended up measuring about 2.25 on my 26mm ID rims.
