Brilliant for layers of mud

Rating:
The Good:

Makes riding in slick mud feel as if you are riding on tacky dirt.

The Bad:

Only usable in really muddy conditions. Rolls slowly on anything not super muddy.

Overall Review:

I have only ridden three runs on Wet Screams but those three runs were like day and night compared to my previous runs. It was the first NWcup.com race of the season and it had been raining all week and kept raining Friday and Saturday. After three runs on Saturday where I hadcontinuouslylet air out of my tires I finally put a Wet Scream on my front and that made all the difference. Suddenly I could hit my lines and control my bike. I was no longer holding on for dear life but actually having fun.
