Arrow Racing The Bite Tire

5/5 (2 Reviews)
Weight : 1200 grams


Product Description

This tread has been a favorite for over a decade - a rounder profile with a 2' 1/2" ground contact and a ramped center known to eliminate speed scrub, one of the critical design issues of 24" tires. Light LT casings and a kevlar bead or HD heavy casings and a steel bead.

Strengths:    agressive tread, tough casing, large air volume, stay on rim at low pressure

Weaknesses:    a little heavy compared to a maxxis or kenda

Bottom Line:   
I am running a savage tire up front with a bite tire in the rear and it is a really good all conditions set-up. The tires seems to hold their own in everything from dry and rocky to wet and rooty and even in snow. If you are one who hates changing tires to suit different course conditions I would highly recomend you give this set-up a try.

Strengths:    Really great tire, really rips on the DH. Sticks to the ground pretty nice, and even though it has been dry rotted, my bad left it in a greenhouse for a winter, it still hasnt had a problem and i have ripped on it for 2 years like that!

Weaknesses:    some cornering it slips a little.

Bottom Line:   
These are great tires and arrow is an awesome company, i would deff buy them again and race on them! If you are looking in to some fast DH tires these are for you!
