Black chili rubber loves you long time
Weighs more than some tread designsOverall Review: I wouldn't have thought this tread would cover so much terrain but it's great for both dry and wet trail days. I rocked these at the bike park for two seasons now and not only am I still on the same pair of rubber (thanks to the long lasting tread), but I keep them on for the spring and fall rides which tend to get a bit soggy or loose at times. Wide spacing between knobs keeps them from gunking up too much and the best part? The tread actually rolls quick enough, despite my original thought that they would roll slowly. The 2.5 wire bead dh version is not the lightest tires out there but it's withstood plenty of abuse and peace of mind is worth it to me.
