Single Track Magazine
Single Track Magazine described the Pace tyres as “superbly fast tools for the job”:
“The Pace is the equivalent of a low-profile Ikon. I’m a big fan of the Ikon on the rear of my XC bike so I was looking forward to giving its faster little brother a go. On the rear the Pace performs brilliantly on dry, hard packed trails and is very, very fast. It rides with virtually no perceptible drag on fire roads and tarmac and it really suits high mileage missions of the low-tech variety.
For a race-day tyre tackling hardpack and dry conditions, they are superbly fast tools for the job.” – Rachel Sokal, SingleTrackWorld.com, April 2017

“First impressions were positive; the Pace is a seriously fast tire. We noticed right away the minimal rolling resistance and the easier effort to keep the wheels moving. With the right pressure, the rear tire gripped well during steep, hard climbs and didn’t yield any unnecessary spin-outs. We spent most of our time testing on loose or hardpack terrain and felt confident with the traction.” – MBAction.com
