Strengths:    Tread is self cleaning probably due to the spaced round knobs.

Weaknesses:    It is kinda high priced.

Bottom Line:   
Fairly light racing tire designed by a racer named Brian Lopez himself. It was a good tire that never let me down through varied terrain of pine needles mud and roots. Did not slip even a hair on climbs. Better bite than anything I have tried but it is light in weight for better rotation.

Strengths:    Cornering & Breaking

Weaknesses:    Heavy & High Rolling Resistance

Bottom Line:   
.Found great deal on these bad boys so I thought I try them out. I ride mostly XC on hard pack in SoCAL. I normally ride tires with low rolling resistance like the SB 8 and more recently the HAPPY MEDIUM. I set this tires up tubeless with Stans and I was able to air them up with my foot pump , tires sealed overnight. First thing I notice was the high level of resistance on the trail, my bike felt sluggish and I needed to pedal harder to maintain my normal speed.

Where these tires really shine was in the corners and in the downhill breaking, All of a sudden my bike wasn't drifting like I'm used to with the other tires. Also when climbing over loose these tires really bit and get you to the top without spinning. Going to save these tires for when the weather turns wetter and our local mountains get some light snow. Should be great tire for those conditions!

Kenda El Moco Tires

My Mojo SL came with the Kenda El Moco tires. Don't have enough experience to make comparisons, and there is limited information available. Wanted to know what others think of this tire. Currently have a 2.35 front and 2.1 rear, does a 2.35 fit on rear?Read More »

Battle of the Lopeses: Bling Bling Vs. El Moco

I found a pair of Lopes Bling Bling (Slow Reezay and Super Tacky cpd) and Kenda El Mocos in a shop. They were my backup plan in case High Rollers run out. (which it didn't) I'm saving up for another go at the tire rack, and which is better: The Bling Bling or the El Moco?Read More »
