“Super stiff casing.”

The Good: grippy, tough

The Bad: The casing is so hard I had to run 20 psi to make it feel right. At that pressure it spun on my rim. It runs well flat after the valve stem tears out.

Overall Review: There are better options. Intense should stick to frames.

“invade this!”

The Good: excellent tire, good tread pattern, sticky rubber that doesnt wear out so fast, solid performance in most conditions.

The Bad: haven't found any yet

Overall Review: very good all around tire. it has a great tread pattern to begin with but it can easily be altered with the good old side-cutters to make it perform in varying conditions! the rubber compound might not be as soft as competing companies but it performs as well as or better than the others, plus they last longer!!! they rock in 90% of conditions riders and racer come across and with some creativity can be a mud tire too!
