“Once scrubbed in, to say these tyres excelled for my level of riding and type of bike is an understatement. The confidence I had in them was astonishing. Completely predictable, even when they did slide they gave a timely warning. I found the spacing of the knobs to be slightly too close together for my liking, but considering this is an intermediate tyre that has to do road mileage as well, I didn’t mind so much, and the moment I was out on the trail, all was forgiven. Being an off-road biased tyre I was curious how they would perform on the road, but I forgot I was even running them. Like most tyres of this type they were slightly noisy on the road, but considering I am riding a thumper and wearing ear plugs it was nothing that I really noticed. No weird vibes or steering issues. I almost thought I was on my usual road tyres, the lean angle and level of grip was outstanding. Once again confidence and predictability through and through.
500 miles later after some aggressive terrain and long dual carriageways, the wear is not even noticeable. I’ve had some tyres that would start to look like they have seen hundreds of miles at this stage. To say I’m pleased is an understatement. I’ve gone through quite a lot of tyres in the past, to the point of fitting them one day and removing them the following day. Everything from the delivery speed and customer service and how they performed on and off the trail was nothing short of brilliant. I think I’ve found my forever friend in these tyres.” – Adventure Rider Training, August 2019
