Great tire - like the Velocita with cornering confidence
I went thru 2 sets of the Maxxis Velocita which I really liked. But I found on some dirt single track that they were a little slippy in the turns, so I tried these tires. They retain the great performance of the Velocita on road and hard pack but give you some cornering confidence on softer surfaces. They aren't super aggressive so you still will feel the bike moving around a bit (which I like and is a good compromise for a fast roller on hard pack & pavement). Great tires!
