Good grip, recommended for more boggy conditions

PostedOctober 21, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, seals well
Not one of the fastest rolling tyre I have had but pretty good in light mud. Hard to get on the rim, but once it's on the tyre seals really well.

Quality rubber

PostedSeptember 28, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, very supple carcass, tubeless set-up easy
Pretty impressed with this tyre (on rear wheel) so far.
Weighed in at 649g with a 54.3mm width on my American Classic Rim.
Was not marked for directionality but mounted with the point of the triangular tread facing forwards - as per images in reviews I had seen.
Was tough to get on to the rim and required use of tyre lever, but as a result it inflated tubeless very easily with track pump and soapy water around the bead.
It has a very supple 120tpi carcass so run at 22psi I found it a little vague at times, but with 25-28psi it's better and I can still notice it deform over roots on climbs to find grip in most scenario's. Even in recent wet rides with some mud it worked pretty well - a couple of minor slips when peddling - but not enough to spin out and lose traction.
It rolls well too - which I found handy on the recent London to brighton off-road. Not really any signs of wear yet but only done c300 miles on it to date.
Would have given 5 stars if not for slightly vague feel with lower psi, but that is due to the supple carcass which has other benefits in terms of grip.
So far - so good.
