Strengths: Good XC tire for straight and hard pack, never really encountered mud during the period I was riding it. Worked well tubeless.
Weaknesses: Not a good wet tire. loses grip in off camber sections.
Not a bad tire. it appeared to wear more quickly than other tires I have used in the past. Will definitely not put at the top of my list for the riding I do, but it did last through the summer season while i had other options hanging in the garage.
I thought Hutchinson announced their Toro is available in a 29 inch tubeless ready format. I have yet to see it for sale anywhere. Anybody know what is up with this tire? Where can I get it?Read More »
