Strengths:    Traction, Weight

Weaknesses:    Materials, construction

Bottom Line:   
Mounted a set tubeless on a Scott Spark with Easton Havoc AM wheels and headed to Moab. Good traction on a variety of terrain and conditions, wet and dry. Good mud clearance. Light weight. Hard cornering on sandstone ripped the sidewall out of the rear tire. No obstacle, just high-G. Ran the front another 6 months until the side knobs started ripping off. Hey, they were cheap... I mean inexpensive. Wouldn't go looking for another set of these, but I got my money's worth.

Pushed Race System for Vanilla RC or DHX 5.0?

Looking for a new setup. Do I get a titanium spring and send my RC off to Pushed to get the works race system or get a new DHX? The refurb on my RC will end up costing 350.00 dollars. I could get the DHX for almost that. Granted the Ti spring will be a little more. I ride aggressive singletrack and ... Read More »
