I have put over 100 miles on the tires and have been very happy with them. They are very well suited for the XC trails here in Southern California. I wanted a tire that was quick rolling but that could take on some harder terrain if I took on a more technical trail. The tires have held up very well and because of that I have now purchased the Duro Miner tires for racing.
Do not be turned off by the price. This is a good tire.
