The difference between Vital test members & PB testes is that most VitalMTB riders qualified for pro licenses. Trumpore, Howell, Wentz, Sven, Turman... So if a bike needs to be ridden hard to expose limitations or positives, I trust them far more than any other site

The difference is that the Nevegal was popular with SLOW people (editors, MBA readers, your dad, etc) and was never popular with pros (see: sharpie sales in 2007), whereas the DHF was and still is popular with pros.

Also, I didn't say the DHF, I said Maxxis. Maxxis makes other...more

I don’t disagree with you, and I just mentioned the DHF as it’s the most popular or one of the most popular in this category from Maxxis. This space has gotten more competitive though

Edit: I’ll also add I respect your experience, you’ve been around longer than I have, and I know you’ve been on more options that I have. Cheers!

This is just my opinion, and I completely get it if I get a lot of heat for it, but it feels like the DHF is becoming what the Nevegal became - highly praised and widely loved, but too many other good options started popping up to just stick with it for traditions sake. It’s a tough problem to have, having so many good choices.

Matt, I haven’t tried the Helldiver, but the Hellkat is another rad option! Tons of grip and they roll decently. I did shear a side knob on the rear a bit prematurely, but I think I’ve done that on every tire. Highly recommended. I’m anxious to try the new Pinner. Just waiting for my current tires to die first.

People seem to love or hate E13s, and I love them. Especially at a front tire. Not the fastest rolling for sure, but for my trails and my riding the cornering grip is insane. Can’t go wrong with Magic Mary’s though!

Tires are a fun disposable to play around and experiment with.

Makes sense. I haven’t tried a DH casing up front yet, I have to run a DD/equivalent out back for durability, but can get away with Exo/equivalent out back. The downside is that the softer casing usually comes on the DH tire. I’ll have to give that a try!

Maybe to test the softer compound for grip and lighter casing for durability?

Shipping is the problem, it's 10-15% of the final cost of our tires. If you order 2/4/6, we can spread that across the whole order. We'll also have special pricing at events (whenever they start up again).

$65-ish is the price for a single tire, shipped.
If you buy 2/4/6 tires, there's a discount.
Whenever events open again, we'll be there with special pricing (and tacos).
We'll also have a frequent buyer/referral program & some other stuff, as well.

We ride. We know how annoying it is...more
