2.5 Sticky Rubber
- Grips well and bites into any surface
- Bites into hardpack, roots, rocks and loose sand or gravel
- Price (if found on sale)
- Wears fast
- Marketed as a Race Only tire (reason for fast wear)
- Sizing is on the large side
A great tire if you need instantaneous grip in any terrain, but it doesn't last for long - the sticky rubber compound wears fast on hardpack and doesn't roll well on flat.
The tire performs well but the wear factor brings down the rating and my recommendation.
