    “Keen tire, a bit thin...”

    The Good:

    I was rolling the widest version on some semi-rocky terrain in Durango. They grip nicely in actual dirt, or on slickrock. For me, they didn't so well on gravelly surfaces.

    The Bad:

    Version I had was a bit thin in the skin. Suffered a couple flats from rock punctures and a catctus. To be fair, the cactus flat would have done any tire in.

    Overall Review:

    For dirt = this tire is money. For mixed surfaces, not my favorite.

    “An excellent grippy tire for XC and trail hardpack”

    The Good:

    Super grippy, fairly puncture resistant, and fairly fast rolling too

    The Bad:

    Not enough volume, seems a bit narrow for size, gets ripped to shreds on rocks

    Overall Review:

    A great dirt tire which excels in hard-pack and loose over, wow you can lean over on this thing at it just keeps biting. But for AM and abve it doesn't have enough volume to absorb hard hits or enough strength to deal with sharp rocks
