No more slipping with this tire. I mean maybe if I'm in 1-1 gearing, going uphill, and I jam on the gas, it slips, but otherwise it's way better than my shtty continentals I used to have.
It's fast, and stays hooked.
Have tried a lot of tires over the years and so this is my new favorite rear tire. (Santa Cruz tallboy Auburn, Nevada City & Tahoe trails)
I bought 2 of these in the spring, just wore out the 1st one after 1100 miles of rugged rocky dry AZ trails (used as rear tire). Very tough tire, great traction on loose on hardpack, dusty rocky Phoenix AZ trails. I would definitely recommend it.
