Pleasantly surprised


The Good: Smooth, super light, slides well, surprisingly durable, reliable tire

The Bad: a little wide profile, pretty thin

Overall: I've had this sucker on for about a year, and I've been surprised by just how well it's held up. It's still going strong, I put it on a new Zero rim and was getting pinch flats, but found out it was an issue with the weight holes inside the rim, put an extra rim strip in and have only had two flats since. The park I usually ride is pretty sketch and there's some loose nails, screws, splinters, and junk most of the time, I've had 2 puncture flats with it, but honestly it's the kind of crap I'd expect out of any tire riding here. Rolls pretty fast for as fat as it is, and is pretty good at absorbing an impact. It's also worn in really well, and still has tons of tread (I ride two or three times a week, and usually most of the day when I do) it's even been holding up pretty well to tire slides on quarters and it's taken a ton of grinding abuse. I had little hope for it when I first bought it, I figured it was too light and would probably crap right out on me, but at this point I'm having a hard time finding another tire I'd rather have in the back.
