Awesome traction and more tread on edge wall
Used on a street trials bike for multi surfaces. Has mostly been street yet it is an off road tire primarily for trails in all conditions. Have ridden skate parks, bmx track, logs, stones, jumps, and rails. Going tubeless this week and can't wait to continue the ride. My best surprise was black Friday after thanksgiving during a rainy wet rock ride. The tires stuck and hydraulic brakes helped but the surface was slippery. The tire has met all expectations with only a month in from weather, drifting soil, and street trails. They rule. I expect to repeat and grab the Race Kings.
