High performance, single ply and kevlar bead keep this mountain tire lightweight and able to climb and descend like no other. Custom tread pattern enables use from The Northshore to Plattekill, muddle or packed conditions.

Strengths: High volume, grips great when ascending steep tracks. Dosen't wear fast. Considerably durable for a folding tire. I already blown 3 tubes and I'm still using the same tire. Thread patterns does work on keeping the mud out of the tire's gripping area.
Weaknesses: Slips easily on wet paved roads when cornering.
Does the job perfectly!!! Specially on medium jumps and drops and worst trail conditions.
Favorite Trail: Local Trails around Montalban and San Mateo
