Strengths:    Fast rolling, light weight, sheds mud very good

Weaknesses:    Not as good traction as Nevegals, but Nevegals are slow

Bottom Line:   
After reading the review on Mountain Bike Action magazine, I was very disappointed by the lack of points it received. I think these tires are very good overall. Yes they don't hook up as nicely as Kenda Nevagals but these tires corner nicely and have a good balance of speed, traction, weight and mud shedding. I ride these tires in all conditions: hard pack, muddy, loose over hard pack, rocky/roots. The tread pattern is just the right amount of nobbies and angled for just the right amount of bite. Personally, I like these over the Nevegals as so many riders praise for their all condition capability. MBA gave them reduced marks for skidding on downhills - isn't that the rider? The Wild Grip'rs are harder, lighter and faster than Nevegals (soft and heavy). You can climb up pretty quick, where Nevegals slow you down/ work you out for their suppleness. Give them a shot, I didn't expect much but they've exceeded my expectations. Cheap price too! Like buying 2 folding tires for the price of 1!

Michelin Advanced WildGrip'R or WildRock'R

Has any one used these tires yet? Certain sizes seem to be non-available in the US so I am thinking not a lot of people have ride time on them. They do seem to be available in other parts of the world so maybe some one from across the pond has ridden them.Read More »
