Slapped this bad boy on for a Mojave Desert trip (Jawbone) and it held up extremely well in the dry, rocky, sandy terrain. I did not expect that at all from a Chinese tire manufacture. I go there with the intent of burning a tire off in 3 days (Lots of rocky hill climbs will do it) and this did not disappoint. Why by a 100 plus dollar tire just to rub off in 3 days? No thanks as I will be sticking with Artrax SX2 for future desert runs.
Me and my daughters race D36 cross country with the cost of theses tires we are able to replace our tires every other race and flip them in between we have been doing this for over 2 years about 25 rear tires a year between 3 bikes I have never had a problem with any of them. They are easy to install and I haven't had any flats you can't beat these for what they cost.
Put these on a RMZ450. Tire hooks up great and shows no sign of wear after 3 hours. Not sure about the longevity but so far so good. Where I ride is a mix of terrains but alot of sandy trails and loose dirt. Real happy so far. Caught mine on sale for $80/set. This tire looks an awful lot like a "32" . Was unsure of when purchased but will probably reshoe with same tires. Installation was smooth and easy just soaped up bead and used 3 spoons.
Tire worked excellent in Florida sand clay mix, I raced on this past weekend. Tire really Hooked up. Normally I run Dunlop mx32 Rear tire. MotoSport had such a Great Price on Tire, and Reviews seemed Positive I have to tell you. This tire is great at this price. I don't know how long it is going to last. But for the Race weekend it was perfect.
Ive tried most all of the Artrax tires and Ive yet to lose a knob on any of them. This SX2 tire is supposed to be for soft terrain but its not the best tire ive found for soft, the TG 4 blows it away for loose dirt but where this sx2 really shines is hard dirt like blue groove clay. Its predictable and gets respectable traction. The Tg4 rear on hard terrain is very slippery. Im running the 120 width which is comparable to a 110 by any other manufacture. Its on a 2013 KX450f . Im using this sx2 solely on my practice track here in Michigan which is a mixture of sand and clay so I have a little bit of every type of dirt in it. I use other tires for Racing .
Went on JUST fine, use soap or similar. Ran one on my CR500AF and Yamaha 450F, they work awesome and wear better than the "other guys" tires. They do weigh a little more but I cannot tell the difference when riding/racing which is usually Glen Helen Raceway. I have 6 motos on Yamaha tire and they are looking still perfect not rounded and wearing very well.
I have been using these tires now for a few years and I am pleased with the performance,durability, and price. Thanks Motosport!
I put one sx2 on a 03 yz 250. The tire is wearing very well. The tire hooks up good in the sand at Aztec family raceway in Colorado, also seems to do good in the fluffy mud sections. You can forget about performance on hard pack, this is were the tire is not so hot in the hard pack. Hard and dry dirt with the sx2 makes the bike real sketchy, makes the bike dance and spin the wheal. That being said if you ride in deep sand and mud you cant beat the sx2 for the price.
I put a 110/90/19 on my rmz450. The tire looked good and was easier to mount than my usual bridgestones. It looks considerably smaller than a normal 110 tire. It looks like a 125 tire its so narrow. I ran a 2 hour scramble race and it had no noticeable wear. It also performed well.
haven't even put it on yet but looks good...........
Mounted tire with three spoons,
tire slick, and my Bead Buddy just like any other tire. No problems what so ever.
Really surprised by these tires. We've had tons of rain this summer here in north central North Carolina, and these SX2's are great for the soggy woods where I ride. Wear seems to be on average with any other soft terrain tire. I imagine they would wear faster on intermediate/hardpack. They also look great on my 20 year old CR.
great in the mud and intermediate terrain.long lasting hard knobs.not so good for hard terrain.Its a bear to mount but worth it,because of its stiff sidewalls.I run mine at 7-8 lbs air pressure on a 250 yzf Yamaha in hare scrambles.
Might mount easier on a 450 rim.
Bought this tire and had the exact same problem as the previous post.I broke the bead trying to mount the tire PS I have mounted many tires on street and dirtbikes never had this problem before. Wish I had read the reviews before wasting my money on this tire
I needed a new tire for our upcoming trip and motosport delivered (as usual!!) Nice looking tire, a little more difficult than most to mount as it was very hard and stiff. It hooked up well and by the end of our 6 day trip there were a few chewed up knobbies from some rocky trails, but all in all it performed well and is holding up nicely.
only got 3 rides ( that were only 3 hours each) on this tire before it got so squirly that i was falling all the time. no more cheap tires, but the dunlop geomax for 30 dollars more. it lasts about 3 times longer.
I was a little skeptical about a $50 tire. In comparison to what I have run previous, at nearly triple the price, its grips the same has held up solid and has taken a beating so far. I heard people say its not a bad practice tire at the track. I ride sand and woods and its rad.
Very good quality tire for the money. I ride every weekend and got two months out of this tire will by again.
I purchased this tire because of its price and it looks a lot like the Michelin S12-XC that I run off-road in the winter time in North West Oregon. Long story short, the Artrax SX2 performed very well and I will continue to by this tire as long the price doesn’t go up.
