Hear Hear! That was my favorite tire by far back in the day. Life was good with a sticky new Zmax mounted.
I'd love to see a 650b version too, but with some updates, or a distinct "Severe Conditions" version with a fatass profile, sturdy single ply tubeless ready casing, and a lot more beef on the edge knobs to reduce squirm and knobs tearing off in rocky terrain.
Surely he's working on tires for the magic size
Damn, that Z max shield looks awesome!
Big grippy knobs on the sides, low profile fast rollers in the middle, close spacing for good grip on loose over hard, and under 550g in 27.5, that's almost a perfect tire for me
