My wife is up for new tires, f and r, and I'm buying them. I had narrowed my choice pretty closely on the Roll X Pro Women's version-- buying the marketing all the way-- and then the latest issue of MBA arrived. It happens that the (male version of?) Roll X Pro finished 2nd. My wife saw the article and declared that she liked the sound of the 1st place Nevegal Lites better, and not just because they came in first...?

My wife is a bit lighter than yours. I put some NBX lites on her Fuel 90 and she's loving them. Colorado front range type riding.
