    Strengths:    Lite, FAST!

    Weaknesses:    Can wash out, but it is a small tread, so what do you expect?

    Bottom Line:   
    I have used this tire as my race tire for 5 years at Leadville 100 and other races. I know tires are a rather personal decision, but my riding style is a perfect fit for this. I am not a hard core DH rider nor am I terribly fast on the single track descents. I ride a lot of long distance, fire roads, etc and this is a perfect fit for me. If you are an ultramarathon rider, here is your tire. Also consider the WTB Mutanoraptor. I can get the ZED from Cambria.

    Ritchey ZED Race 29er (700x42) Tire - Anyone Using?

    Anyone using the Ritchey ZED Race 29er (700x42) tire? I'm looking for an actual width as I'm trying to determine if it will fit my Vicious cross fork/Spot CX frame. Bikeman lists the tire as "low profile". The Ritchey website doesn't list any specs for this one. Any help is appreciated. Thanks---Read More »
