    Comments:

    While I found everybody loves these tires for their puncture resistance, I thought the had a little too much roll because of the high sidewall. Hard, tight cornering on a hard surface and they will break out. Rolling resistance was slightly better than the 31x10.50's on the jeep. 50 miles of trails/street and 1 day didn't produce a flat but it was all it took for them to end up removed from the bike. Looking for plan B.

    By far, the best all around tire

    About Me

    Comments:

    I jump everything I can in town and I don't avoid dirt outside of town. This tire does it all. If I was serious about dirt, I;d run knobbies, but for the totally cr6ppy streets and occasional inspired surprise of a short cut through an abandoned lot, you cannot beat this tire. When I was running 26", they never flatted and I never added air (I also never popped onto curbs.) Now I check the air every week and jump on and off curbs with abandon. I've tried the Schwalbe equivalent and these don;t wash out as readily in the sandy corners, and they stick better in rain and snow. I'll never run anything else. Unless I'm doing serious dirt.
