WTB Graffiti UK 2.2" Tire

DESCRIPTION

Graffiti UK 2.2” /// $50-$25

  • Usage: DJ
  • Conditions: Pavement to hardpacked dirt
  • Specs: Available in with Aramid bead, Race casing and DNA rubber or steel bead comp with standard rubber, both weigh 1010 grams.

    Strength:

    Any strengths are negated be the fact that both tires blow off the rims, after remounting a few times.

    Weakness:

    Bead was severed in several places after remounting from so many thorn punctures.

    Bead was severed in several places after remounting after a few punctures. The tire blew off the rim, when not being ridding, both times, fortunately. This is a dangerous tire. I also got several flats immediately upon first use, unlike my old Bontragers. These were my first folding tire and has me back to the wire beads. I suppose Kevlar beads are OK, but these are not made with a reliable bead material.

    Strength:

    I have been using them for a few months and so far am impressed with them. They are quite large and roll well. They work well on lots of different surfaces such as roads, hardpack and grass.

    Weakness:

    Not great in mud as they slip a bit.

    I like them and especially as I paid £12 a tyre for the folding DNA version. Good for lots of different types of riding.

    Strength:

    big casing? kinda supple.

    Weakness:

    washes out a bit. real slow in grass.

    not a bad tire. i haven't ridden it on the trail yet, but i don't think it'll do any better than the holy rollers, which are almost half the price. the holy rollers are softer and have less rolling resistance. like i said, these aren't bad, but if i had to do it over again, i'd go with the holy rollers.


    2 chilis for value due to the price
    4 chilis overall cause they do the job they're advertised for.
