Strengths: Big side knob for good cornering, very fast rolling band, strong casing. Do not wear to fast.
This is a review for the 26x2.3 This is a downhill / DS tire. It has enormous side knob so you can corner with your gnees cleaning the floor ;-)) The middle knob are very small so the rolling resistance is minimal. Result: These are really fast downhill tires. The casing do not look as strong as the intense FRO but I run them at low pressure some time and did not get any flat.

I replace the rear tire when I go on the trails. The value rating reflect that my LBS is really espansive. You can find them for $15 cheaper on the web and they would get one more chill.

I've been itching to try a tubeless setup and I really love these tires but I came across a review here where someone posted that they could not get these tires to air up with Stan's. ... Read More »
