Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Holds air.
Fits on a rim.

Cons: Horrible traction.

Recommendation: This came stock on the front of my Fatback. I can;t wait to replace it. At even 8psi it is hard and inflexible. Traction is ok on dry singletrack, but terrible on snow. Getting the psi low enough for some decent traction makes the self steer even worse. There are plenty of better tires out there.

Pros: Grippy, round profile, sturdy

Cons: Pick up cactus thorns easy, price

Recommendation: By looking at this tyre seems its indestructible. In fact, it can be flatten by cactus, like any other rubber. Still, it doesn't affect on my rating. This tyre has superb grip and corners so good that I rarely touch the brakes. Guess, its partially due to round profile. And it works this way in any conditions.

Pros: A great front tire for fatbikes. It doesn't have the mind of its own like the Endomorph. It also offers plenty of grip for singletrack.

Cons: Price for the heavier tire, it runs about 120 dollars for the heavy weight tire.

Recommendation: This is the yin to the Endomorph's yang. It works especially well as a front tire, gripping the dirt like a tank tread and keeping you stable without squirming in the turns on the singletrack.
