Submitted by Kadeater a Downhiller from Utah

Date Reviewed: October 11, 2005

Strengths:    Great traction on loose and hard dirt. It hasn't rained enough to test them in the mud. SUPER SIDEWALLS. 4-PLY SIDEWALL = 10PSI and no pinch flats!

Weaknesses:    None that I have found yet except maybe that they are very heavy but 4-ply sidewalls are going to be. You have to expect that.

Bottom Line:   
If you want the most indestructible tire I am yet to find buy these. Yes they are heavy but super thick sidewalls never get pinch flats. Good Rolling tire and performs terrific in a myriad of conditions.

Date Reviewed: December 21, 2004

Strengths:    Indestructable casing, excellent dry traction.

Weaknesses:    They wear out really fast, and the side lugs liketo rip off.

Bottom Line:   
These tires were okay for going down really steep rocky terrain, other than that they suck your pedal power even when you ar going downhill. The thing that I disliked the most was that the lugs tear off the sidewall too easily.

Submitted by RJ J a Downhiller from Whistler

Date Reviewed: July 8, 2004

Strengths:    Aggressive knobs, stiff side walls, comes in 24", incredibly smooth ride

Weaknesses:    Less than 1 month of riding and it's already worn out. When they say soft compound, they mean it.

Bottom Line:   
Best tires i'ved ever used but way to soft for normal person use. Great for racing though. Im already looking for new tires after 1 month of use.

Date Reviewed: August 18, 2003

Strengths:    Good traction, thick casing.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
One year, no flats. If that doesn't say something then what does? Match these tires with Sun-Ringle Doublewides and Nokian DH tubes and watch all your friends change flats. Maybe they will get the hint after a while. PS I ride as hard as the next downhiller, so the 909's have been put to the test.
