strong durable sidewalls, seals up instantly and easily on a UST rim using only a floor pump with a big pop as the bead locks. The volume is what you would expect from a 2.2; decent bag size and big wide tread profile when mounted on a rim with internal width of 27mm- but no monster like the conti rubber queen it replaced. Super fast roller on the center 65a compound rubber but rails turns like a DH tire providing you lean it right over get the 55a compound blocks working, and run the tire at appropriate pressures (28 psi) when it finally lest go it scrubs for traction slowly and consistently; definetely one for the aggressive riders.


Can be a little vague when transitioning from the fast center tread blocks to the shoulder blocks in loose conditions, like a lot of DH and aggro tires, its best suited to aggressive riding. not used in the wet or mud yet.

Weight - its around 840 grams. But , tubeless on a decent trail or AM wheel its still a light setup, considering the size and durablity it has.

Not cheap but a tire with seriously good performance, absolutely rails turns in dry conditions and has very good rim security at low tire pressures, i have it fitted to a140mm gary fisher dually, repacing a massive 2,2 continental rubber queen . The purgatory is on par with the rubber queen or a high roller for grip but much faster rolling than both. highly recommended for aggressive riders looking for a faster option, and those looking for a tire with decent UST rim retention. For the XC hounds; there are lighter options out there for those who dont need the strength of a full UST tire.
