Strengths:    Great all around, rugged tire. Fast rolling, low drag, very good road performance, good hard pack traction off road, puncture protection, good wear.

Weaknesses:    Less than ideal traction off-road in wet, muddy or loose conditions. But will do if care is exercised.

Bottom Line:   
Just a very good cross tire, with excellent road characteristics that also excels off road within reason.

Strengths:    Fast rolling, quiet, grippy on pavement

Weaknesses:    Probably not the best on wet or muddy trail conditions

Bottom Line:   
I couldn't afford the Fireman's Texas Cruzer 29er that I wanted, so I converted my SE Racing Stout into a big boy BMX. I mainly ride in an urban setting with an occasional hike & bike trail thrown in the mix. These Halo Twin Rails have been exactly what I've been looking for to take me back to my teenage BMX days ripping around the neighborhood, wall riding drainage ditches, hopping curbs, etc... They're super smooth rolling on the street, have plenty of volume to absorb what I'm throwing at them, and corner fantastic. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a great commuter tire or want the perfect tread for their urban assault ride.

Strengths:    Durable and easy to mount, low rolling resistance, surprisingly good traction in dry, dusty conditions

Weaknesses:    no good in gravel or mud

Bottom Line:   
These are a great urban tire as well as a good bike-path and dirt trail tire. I've ridden these on slickrock in Moab and they worked great there as well. The twin rail does its job of contributing to low rolling resistance while still providing some directional stability. On the back, if you keep the pressure lowish, the waffle tread will still dig in enough to provide good traction.

Halo Twin Rail

Anybody wanna share their experiences with this tire? Particularly the dual-compound version... How is it in the dirt? Wet? Long-lasting? Everything seems great -- weight, tread pattern -- and the price is great for a dual-compound tire. It'd be my rear tire. [url]http://www.halorims.com/HaloNew/ ... Read More »

Halo Twin Rail?

Anyone have Halo Twin Rail on their 29er? I'm trying to find a tire for commuting. I know their are some old threads, but their are few new tires. The weight is close to the Big Apples. I ride SS rigid 90% commuting and a little off road. I could probably go with 2 sets of tires, or maybe SB8's or N ... Read More »
