1st trials tire. So far so good. Paired with tubliss and mounting was a snap, maybe half the time of a tubed knobby. Tire is ridiculously soft which makes it very grippy but i'm not optimistic about tread life. But not to worry, the grip is worth it.

I ride trials at the expert level and like this tire. It has a better price than the Michaeline trials tire and is just as grippy.
A little tough to mount but has outstanding traction on very hard pack surfaces. At the end of 5 days in West Virginia it was wore out and starting to loose knobs. Not impressed with the longevity but the traction is impressive. Had to ride on flat briefly it was almost unrideable. I ran 10 psi with good traction but still dinged the rim at high speed on a square edged rock but my bike is heavy 255lbs dry with no fuel.There is definitly a learning curve to riding this tire it handles quite a bit different than a knobby. It worked very well for the rocky singletrack in West Virginia.
I love this tire. I have almost 500 miles on mine, racing a 08 ktm 200 xcw and the traction for technical rock climbing, waterfalls, ledges, and rock gardens is great. i like the way i can drive over over baby head boulders without unsettling the bike. it even works fine in deep sand washes. i just did an 82 mile race in nipton and 60 miles was whooped out sand washes and it did great. on the fireroads, i have hit 75 mph without any problems. this tire has lost a few knobs but otherwise looks like it has another 500 miles to go.
