Ive tried lots of different tires front and rear, this is one of my favorite fronts. I had the pirelli extra x on and went to this 410 front. I noticed its a little less sure footed than extra x at slow speeds like driving to MX track through loose sand but once on sand track at speed it rocks. I have two different front wheels so I ride one then swap wheel and go ride next , same day same conditions. It defiantly works better in loose sand then extra x which also is a great tire(previously best ive found), in fact everything Pirelli ive tried I have been super impressed with. What really blew me away was how well this 410 works on hard pack, very predictable, hooks even harder than extra x. Wear has been really good too. I was worried about chunking using it on my practice track which has hard and loose terrain but its held up excellently so far.
