2015 27.5 folding, Tomac series
Grip in climbs, grip in turns, grip on roots and rocks, mud handling, dirt handling, dry or wet traction. Bomb proof--long lasting and never flats.
Heavy. Poor rolling resistance. Slow as heck on pavement.
What a great tire! This was my first true set of MTB tires, and these Nevegals were awesome, as I learned how to get through obstacles and have fun. A novice needs good traction to get through stuff that a better rider can cruise through. These tires provide crazy good traction. And a novice doesn't want to stop for flats... these never flat, no matter how much I abused them in the rocks--no cuts, no holes, no pinch flats. And I was using them with tubes. You can't race on these, b/c they're too slow, but if you're looking for a fun ride, these are great.
