I installed this tire on the bike then took off to the local track. I have never felt such grip on any other tire that I have rode on. These things inspire confidence in cornering at high speeds, and the overall traction is unheard of. If you aren't running these on your bike you are missing out.

Strictly Motocross review - from a VET Expert rider - 2015 KX450
I have 3 rides on the tire on 2 different tracks. Tire seems to excel in the loose sandy corners. Dry hard pack appears to be its kryptonite. It grips very well in groomed loamy dirt...but let' s be honest, what new tire doesn't....its a little too early to tell on wear and tear but appears to be holding its edges well. I would rate this tire as average. Not a bad choice but far from the best.
if you ride tracks that lean more toward hard pack, I would go another direction. I do like it in the sand and in deep rutted corners the aggressive side wall tread does hold well in the line.
One of the best tires I've ever used. Only used it a few times but I could notice a huge difference
Tired great all around and mounts easy. Motorsport sent me the wrong tire on first order and took 10 days for the replacement to come. Would recommend using a different company.
I bought these to replace my MX 32's that came stock on my KTM 450 sxf. They feel lighter, well planted in the dirt and seem to last longer. I have always griped about Dunlop's and how fast they wear out for my budget. Buy these.
