Sharp cornering, be careful to exceed the limits of physics - after all it's just a tire. A good race tire.
Dry trail - very fast and safe.
Wet trail - very fast and safe enough.
Muddy trail - very fast and still safe.

Strengths:    lightweight for a 29er, amazing traction for minimalist tread, soft rubber hooks up well

Weaknesses:    reliablity, durability, a bit pricey

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic tire for the advertised use; I was looking for a lightweight race day only tire to cut weight where it matters most; I'm a bit of a meathead and don't have the term finesse in my vocabulary. so I was leery of the thinness and lightness, but I rode them hard (granted only one ride) and they did AMAZINGLY well; I didn't have to scrub speed or break traction anywhere I was used to finding the line on my other bikes/tires. Incredible; crisp handling and acceleration, amazing grip. only weakness was the pinch flat I got w the over inflated 700c cyclocross tube, so im running the stock 29er tube; may try a tubeless conversion later. the tread does wear quickly (seeing some after just one hour ride) and the manager of my LBS who rides them as his primary tire agrees. But for a race day only tire, its worth it. FWIW when mounted to the stock bonty duster 29er rims there's a mm or two of sidewall not "shrouded" by the tread and it looks like its begging for a rock to slash it; however I slammed through a couple nasty ones and it came through no problem.

Long Travel 29'er.......that won't be my primary bike?

Looking for some advice on a long travel 29er that won’t break the bank. I am mainly a XC rider but my son and his buddies like to ride trails that require more of a trail bike. No problem……..just go out and get a new bike….right? Well not so fast. This would be my [U]4th bike [/U]and not my prim ... Read More »

fat bike with 29+ for xc racing

Thinking about a higher end carbon fat bike as a year round bike. Winter set up as a fatbike but the rest of the year with carbon 29+ wheels and a suspension fork as an XC bike. I'd be getting rid of an s-works epic 29er so I'm a little concerned I might regret that for the handful (around 5) of X ... Read More »

XLR 26" and PBR 29" Component swap

Hi there, I have a little project in the works using a 2014 XLR 26" shortened down to 425mm A to C and with travel restricted by a further 10mm, so 50mm travel total. The issue I have is that there in nowhere to fit the remote lockout on this bike, so ideally I would like a PBR lockout instead ... Read More »
