Fast in a straight line. That's it
I had Fast Track S-Works on the back of my newly bought Rockhopper Sport 2020.
Here is the issue, the cornering. You speed up quick, because center thread is great, but as soon as you take a turn, you will feel yourself loosing control, even on pavement. If you ride over water and take a corner, you might completely fall on the side.
I REALLY did not like this tire, but I will give it 2 star for the speed. The problem is your threat of falling. I changed to Ground Control Sport, and I am very confident on turns now.
Fast Trak is a very tricky tire, if you want unpredictability, go ahead.
If you value your life, health, and life and health of your family riding the bike...DON'T buy this tire.
Specialized has some great tires, but this is not it. I would rather ride on Ground Control and Purgatory than this, but if you want less thread, maybe buy Renegade, and call it done.
Many people are reporting this tire as the one you lose all the control on turns, and spinning their bike out from the back tire.
I am not the only one.
Absolutely not. Maybe to my enemy I want mortally wounded, lol, but even at that lol...I would have more dignity than that :D
