Nokian Gazza Jr 26 X 2.6 Tire

Gazza Jr 26 X 2.6

Professional DH tyres for the roughest courses on earth. Pinchflat protected DH casing with extra stiff sidewalls makes possible to use much lower pressures to get more grip. Precise cornering due to famous, aggressive Nokian DH tread with solid and raised shoulder knobs.

GET THIS TIRE! i do freeride and downhill singletrack with and some urban fun and these tires are hands down the best i've owned. these tires chew up anything they come across and i've never had a pinchflat since i got'em. curbs, stairs, dirtjumps, drops, roots, logs, rocks, creekbeds, basically whatever get ya hard...these tires keep it that way.

Strength:

Strong tire, won't get off the rim even if completelly flat. Glreat traction, predictable wjen leaned.
Strong as hell, even in those sharp rocky trail surfaces of Ymmitos mountain (where cyclist friends cannot go)

Weakness:

If you've got a normal small lever, you'll find it hard to get this tire on & off the rim. On the other hand this is a safety measure, nobody's fancy a tire derailling under speed.

This tire stll amazes me after more than 2 years of use. Still holding strong at ymmitos rocky trails.
Very reliable traction.
When leaning, will eventually brake loose but under a very predictable manner.
Despite the weight and pattern it rolls really fast.
a Great Finnish product (these people are ahead -again - in technology).
Take care to use the right rim size (width), ok?

Strength:

Tough as hell, you'd think they're bulletproof. Never loses composure and grip at any situation. Excellent huck tire. Cheaper than Nevegals.

Weakness:

Gazzaloddis keep rolling, and rolling, and rolling...
Lacks the "ultimate grip" of soft-compound race specials, pricier than high-grip types like the Minion and the High Roller. Tire sways (esp. rear) at low pressures.

Uber tough tire that can go anywhere, but grip may be not on par with soft-compound tires, and braking bite is not as good. No need to get the Gazza 3.0, the 2.6 is man enough. However, you will love hucking with this tire. I had not tried it on damp and wet conditions, so I'm not still hailing it as DH/FR rider's got-to-have gear.

Similar Products Used: none. Gazzas are my first set of DH tires.

Strength:

Grips great

Weakness:

Price

Doesn't get flats easy. Grips great i use it on the front only.It really does go off very predictably if you lose the front end.
I have used a 24" on the back & flatted at a place called Windrock way up on the mountain & i rolled it down a few miles without the tire coming off the rim.Thanks Nokian,that was a lifesaver !
I am going to try some lighter tires since i don't DH really anymore.

Brian Mckie   Downhiller [Aug 24, 2004]
Strength:

Unbelievable grip in all conditions. I haven`t piched one yet no matter how much abuse they`ve been given

Weakness:

heavy, but hey! who cares when you have the assistance of gravity?

They produce the goods in all conditions and if you`re hard on tyres they are hard to beat. They have worn very little in the 3 months too.
