Why would the first round be the same weekend as Sea Otter?

Single Ply tires only work on tracks that are not downhill tracks. World Champ of Downhill this year will be world champ of SuperD!!! Still though, SEND IT!!!

the pull shock feels amazing you should try one. It's the most coil like feel of any air shock

There's really some truth to this bike being Epic. It does rule, It crushes climbs and descends really well

I once landed from a mellow jump and my derailleur got sucked into the wheel, snapping the derailleur into six pieces, breaking the shifter cable, snapping 6 spokes, bent up the chain AND snapped the derailleur hanger. It was a mess

Pro Racing's Honesty

Rating:

The Good: Rolls Fast Super tough Sidewalls (DH Casing) Tons of grip if you can dig in Lean it and GRIP

The Bad: Transitional knobs don't exists... No grip on hard pack trails with small marble like dust when initiating cornering

Overall:

I have run through two sets of these tires.

I run the DH casing 60a. The 60a compound lasts incredibly well and still gives tons of grip. These tires won't benefit much from a softer compound because their specialty is digging in and getting bite. They roll super well and will have you keeping up with wierwolf clad XCers. As long as you can lean your bike over and dig into the terrain you're riding on these are going to be some of the best tires you could possibly ever run. However, if you can't dig into the soil and you're on hardpack summer condition trails with no loam or duff or gravel these aren't the tires for you.

If you plan on riding anything like desert terrain or gravel or loam these tires will kill it so hard!!!

Sometimes these tires have more grip than you can even reach in a corner at full speed. You can't out flow these tires, as long as you can dig into the soil.

Long story short, if you're looking for an AM tire and want to protect your wheels from rocks and run super low psi for tons of grip get yourself a pair of these in 60a 2.4 2 ply and get over the extra weight for the added shredability factor. Take a set out and run them tubeless over a stiff wheel and you won't have any problems EVER!! Just make sure to replace your tubeless sealant every 3 to 4 months.

These tires took me to Bootleg Canyon 1st Place Pro Super D and they will help you shred it to the next level. Get in and rip it!
