This tire performs great but I have gotten 3 flats in a very short time. My mechanic who runs this tire said to run 14-15 psi because it’s a soft tire, so I did. I got two flats with 14-15 psi and one flat with 12 psi. There were no defects with my wheel, rim lock or rim strap so there was no obvious reason why my tube kept pinching. However the tire performed great in almost all types of terrain, loved the performance. I would recommend this tire to a friend unless I hear more of the same from other people.

Overall excellent tire. I have run several sets of the Pirelli XCMS front and rear. Traction characteristics are predictable with excellent all around performance. These tires wear well and maintain good traction until, more-or-less, worn out. Installation on the XCMS tire is easy. I mount all my own tires and have tried all the major brands at one time or another. WILL buy again, and DO recommend to friends.
ONE OF THE BEST IF NOT THE BEST FRONT TURNING TIRES I HAVE EVER RIDDEN ON. ENDURO RIDERS NEED TO UP THE PRESSURE A LITTLE.
Easy to mount...excellent traction...what more could you ask for? Gets great traction in the typical Florida sugar sand, to the rare blue groove rocky stuff. Can't say anything better!!
