"offroad with jumps less than 61cm"

Real riding with zero earth based kickouts.

Those T handles are Usag. They're dope, buddy here has a set. I plan on picking up a set of the sliding t handles.

Let me keep this simple for you. Those sideknobs on this and the Michelin are like no other tire made. There's not a single tire in existence outside of those two that have sideknobs that thick. And yes they are literally carbon copies. Not 'looks like'. They are identical. Therefore if you've ridden the Michelin and know how insanely well those tires hold corners, then yes this will be a comparable surrogate in that respect. And since Michelin has not produced a lighter/faster (in weight and in casing deformation) version, and e13 was smart enough to do so, e13 will now be drinking Michelin's mutha fuggin milkshake, since that's really the only downside to those michelins. I'm not sitting here saying 'boy shucks! that looks like somthin else'. I'm saying in terms of sideknobs that IS the wildrockr2. I don't need a lesson on tire casings. Those e13 tires are going to rail because they have Michelin's badass sideknobs sent down from beautiful baby jesus. They'd have to be made of chewing gum or concrete to not work well.

Except it looks (and will therefore behave) like none of those Einstein.The sideknobs are literally a direct ripoff of the Michelin wildrockr2, so much so that they probably made a mold from them. That's a good thing because michelin still hasn't made a lighter version and now e13 has. Don't hurt your brain trying to understand this. I know, nuance is tough.

That list of downsides reads like a drug disclaimer warning on a tv ad. It's also quite literally a list of contradictions to many of the claimed benefits listed above it.

But that was a good read BT. Thanks for taking the time!
