Great recumbent tire.

If you ride a recumbent with a 20 inch front (or even rear) tire, you need look no further than this tire. Very tough, grips and handles well. If you're used to a 100lb front tire pressure, I can assure you that you won't notice much dif using the 73psi max pressure this tire is rated for. (Knocking on wood...) so far, only 1 flat from a goathead that just managed to get in from the side, and missed the liner. Only downside of this tire, it is a PIG to get on and off the rim, due to the toughness of the sidewall construction.
But that goes with the territory, and this tire should serve you well. Until I can go Uncle Stans tubeless on my front tire as I will be on my rear 26 wheel, this will have to do.
