Strengths:    The grip on soft, muddy ground was extream...
There it only was soft dirt, you could turn as you wish without any slipping...


Weaknesses:    On hard track, the tire are so soft that the nobs bends... and it feels like you have a punkture...

Bottom Line:   
At wet, muddy or very soft dirt conditions, this is the tire to count on.
At dry conditions, there are better tires.

After a day with DH/FR you could clerly see that the tire are used, so I use the tire only in wet/muddy/soft conditions, on hard track i think the tire will be finished very quick, couse it's so soft rubber in it...

Strengths:    Indestructable sidewalls and ability to grip on mud/grass/loose sandy gloop and moorland boggy stuff. Nice tight rim bead, so they wont come off if ran at super low pressures.

Weaknesses:    Doesnt like to grip on rock, ranging from chunks of solid rock to slate waste or fragmented rocky chutes. Expensive if bought new. Wet roots will have you taking out life insurance policies (as would wet roots with most tyres though)

Bottom Line:   
Superb mud tyre for much of Wales in winter. I dont understand why with the michelin mud tyres people complain about the rim bead... Just use plenty of CHALK OR TALC when fitting them. Then a quick wash before riding.

Avoid these for rocky or extremely rooty tracks.

Good 2.7-3.0 DH rear tire for loose conditions and some mud...

Thanks. BTW... anybody run a bigger tire out back. I like big tires and can get a 3.0 on the back but only a 2.7 up front with the Super T. I've yet to try it out. I know typically people run the bigger tire up front but I think that's mostly based on a throwback idea. When mtb first started ... Read More »
