  • Specs: Available in 1,210 gram Race version with Aramid bead and DNA rubber or 1,500 gram Team DH with steel bead, high grip DNA rubber and Super Duty casing.

    Strength:

    These are some great tires for riding around on the streets in my area. They are nice and smooth in comparison to the rather knobby tires. I haven't ridden them in the wet and they did mediocre in the mud but on dirt jumps and some urban riding it feels like the grip is endless.

    Weakness:

    Little tough to get on and getting them to pop on the bead. I have them pumped up to the max of 65 psi and they are still pretty good through rough bumps.

    Best for urban or dirt riding. Loose gravel is not this tires friend.

    tough
    durable

    Weakness:

    somewhat heavy
    rolling resistance somewhat noticeable

    i tried the race version,not the dh team...
    the graffiti has a recessed tread design and a knurled contact surface alot like the hookworm..
    great for jumps,stairs,walls,whatever urban stuff you're doing.takes heavy landings like a champ.
    have these on mavic 325s and they feel bomb-proof...
    however,on dirt,they tend to kick up alot of debris,so you get dirt in your shoes,face,and sometimes it can get irritating...
    grip is good,leaning far over in corners is no problem...
    changing tyres right out of the packaging was easy,no problems with the bead.
    i run these tyres with michelin dh tubes and it eats up any urban crap i can throw at it...
    however,rolling resistance is a little more than you'd expect of a tire with recessed tread.even my 2.1 excavators seem to roll better.it can be forgiven due to e large contact patch and high grip...
    they're quite heavy too,which can be expected of tough jump tyres.not one for the weight weenies.
    also,even though it says 2.2,they really do look more like 2.5 hookworms,with high profile walls and a large contact surface.
    havent tried them in the wet yet.
    wear rate is decent,after the all-nighter which had plenty of stair-work (during breaks) and fast winding pavement there's still some hair left on the tire,and the knurled surface doesnt look bothered at all...
    havent tried them in wet or offroad (for experience),so for now givin them 4 flamin chillis
    overall, confidence inspiring on the street,and for the price,why not??
