Product Description

Our new DMR Moto Digger is designed to get the power down in looser and softer trail conditions. The sharp edged, Motocross style tread blocks are profiled to dig deep and find grip where other tyres lose it. Staggered shoulder blocks that wrap round the tyre, give powerful high speed, low angle cornering. Dig?

    Strengths:    Grip, style, speed, smoothness and price.

    Weaknesses:    Tad heavy, but no biggie.

    More sizes, dual ply-versions, protection versions, race versions etc needed in product line-up. Tire is a winner, wake up DMR!


    Bottom Line:   
    This is a review for the 2.1 wire bead version that weirdly doesn't appear on any website!?

    Very durable real world tire, not really a race tire. Tread lasts forever and performs very well on tarmac, and doesn't hum loudly or judder. Hard-pack is great too and loose over is good. Occasionally a little sketchy on pure loose. Grips well on high inflation (road at 40 psi plus).

    I've never had a better tire for hard-pack or loose over, but I've had as good a performer for more money with Aramid dual-ply tires at around 500 grams, with a little more pure loose ability, but never with the same durability or price.

    Fine in the damp and OK in the wet. If I could give the tire 7 stars for value I would.

    The **perfect** muck around everyday commuter do everything high durability training tire. Even well worth considering for hard-pack/loose over/fire trail/DJ/Slope-style racing.

    Strengths:    Cheap, grippy, light & fast rolling for size, large volume, (used my Moto RT's for years with little wear), Reasonable onroad, better at offroad & gravel than the Moto RT's. Very predictable controlable slide, when cornering at speed on the loose.

    Weaknesses:    For what they're designed for - none found

    Bottom Line:   
    I needed something more offroad than my Moto RT's, while retaining reasonable onroad grip. Went for the folding, for a cheap (+£8) 1/2lb-ish (pair) rotating weight reduction.

    Strengths:    good grip, fast rolling, strong for a single ply. i ride hard and in 2 years there is no wear to the sides. and the blocks are still nice and big after 2 years.

    Weaknesses:    wet no so good for wet streets or off road but then again most tires slip anyway once thing get gooey.

    Bottom Line:   
    i use this on the front of my bike and the moto on the back. i ride lots of street and hard pack dirt jumps. sometimes i even take her dh riding. and other than realy wet slime like dirt or moldy wet dirt these tires hold up and stick there lines. and both of them seem to be everlasting since they show little wear after lots of street and dh dj riding.
    i also want to try this as a dh tire for a fast rolling fast peddeling rear tire on my bottle rocket. i think it should work great.

    Strengths:    grip!
    little rolling resistance
    looks nice
    Kovarik rides one
    support the UK trails scene
    pretty durable too.


    Weaknesses:    haven't had trouble with it myself but the sidewalls seem a bit thin..

    Bottom Line:   
    I've been running this tyre on the front since it came out; I love it and will never buy another tyre for allround relatively dry weather; it grips really well especially in a bit loose, sandy conditions and on hardpacked 4x or bmx tracks and trails. Breaks loose very predictably and isn't even that bad in the wet although it tends to clog when riding in the mud.

    I'd say it's worth the 5 flaming beans easily.

    Strengths:    Very fast tires over both roads and trails. Though classified as "Dirt Jump" I use them for singletrack and freeride. I will never go anywhere else for tires from now on.

    Weaknesses:    For me it was the most difficult tire to seat on my wheels...EVER!!

    This tire is not for Weight Weenies....HEAVY!!


    Bottom Line:   
    BEST TIRE FOR THE PRICE!!

    I run them on roads during the week and take it to the trails on the weekend. This tire as SLOW wearing. They are everything I could ever ask for in a tire.

    NOT A WET TIRE
    I would NEVER use these in mud or wet conditions because the knobs are so close I can imagine alot of mud getting in there.

    Strengths:    long lasting, high volume, grip, cheap, stiff

    Weaknesses:    heavy compared to most single ply tires

    Bottom Line:   
    Grip very well and roll supper fast. I ran them tubeless without trouble. New kevlar version drops 100g over steal beads. not just a dirt jumping tire, you would be amazed at what this tire can do.

    My own tire epiphany... Moto Digger

    DMR Moto diggers on my freeride do-everything bike (Brodie thumper, 7" in the rear and Z1 on the front) Unreal! I recently decided I didn't need the minions on anything except Keystone's rock gardens. Got sick of just being destroyed on long uphills and then not really needing the heavy rubber ... Read More »
