Schwalbe Dirty Dan Tire

DESCRIPTION

The Dirty Dan is a MUD specific DH tire and comes in 26x2.5. It is available in either a Gooey Gluey or a triple rubber compound. Hot ticket would be a Gooey Gluey up front and a triple compound out back. New LST bead technology on this model too. -Triple compound rubber means that the outer knobs are softer for grip and the inner tread is firmer to allow a lower rolling resistance.

Strength:

Very light, low rolling resistance for a mud tyre, excellent grip in the wet - mud, rocks, roots etc. Fast.

Weakness:

Too early to tell - suspect side walls my be prone to damage as they are so light. Expensive.

Fantastically fast tyre. Great grip and light. Pay for what you get.

Strength:

Solid grip, lugs are profiled for good contact and shed mud fast as well as have side lugs ofr leaned corners.
Great design

Weakness:

None so far

I expected some lug roll over like typical spikes and there was none so far, I banked a hard blacktop corner to try and get the roll effect and its not easy! Its a solid tire that actually works well on hard pack too, Its made in guey gluey which helps them stick to roots and rocks which is a great thing when running spikes LOL.

Overall its an amazing tire and better than others Ive ran and had to cut spikes to roll easier!

Good job Schwalbe its an amazing tire!
