Onza Aquila 27.5" DH Tire

Onza Aquila 27.5” DH Tire

The Choice of World Cup Champion Aaron Gwin

Even the pickiest of riders have a hard time putting down the Aquila. A playful downhill tire that is as tacky and robust as it is smooth and fast, this tire uses a self-damping polymer structure that was developed specifically for gravity application. With ultra-high grip on difficult and wet terrain, and a long lasting center tread that softens a bit on the side nobs to assure perfect cornering, this is a tire that does everything you need it to. The dual-ply casing features a butyl inlay and additional 40x40 TPI bead to bead construction to keep durability-and confidence-high.

Features

  • High performance compounds The Dual and VISCO compounds are both designed proficiently and offer excellent application. Use the VISCO for freeride, and enduro riding, and the Dual for downhill racing.
  • Fast center tread with slightly softer side knobs for increased grip
  • Dual ply casing features butyl inlay and 40x40 TPI bead to bead construction

Lovin It.
FYI this is relevant to the RC245A compound tires. I'll likely try the 240 on the front once it comes out and once rainy season arrives.

After 2+ years of riding Vertstar Magic Marys I decided to try something that might last a bit longer for park riding. So far I have 3 days smashing laps in Whistler on these tires f/r. My feedback is as follows :

1. Grip on roots, rocks, and while braking is insane. Turning you have to be aware of the side-knob engagement, once they hook these tires are money. Definitely more drifty than a MM, but the drift and hookup point is predictable. Rolling resistance is relatively low for a DH tire, loving the little bit of extra speed to clear doubles. Rode these in dry, dust, a little wet-ish (day of the EWS race) and they were solid in every condition.

2. Rear tire is barely showing signs of wear after 3 days of hard riding, front shows virtually none. This is blown-out whistler hardpack, dust and rock. After years of riding magic marys and minions this seems a bit better than both (especially verstar marys).

3. No flats (yet). Obviously I don't ride like Gwin, but laps like original sin to in deep as well as schleyer (this year the jagged edges off the drop are rediculous) were munching my rims earlier this year with a bikepark mary (terrible tire, do not buy).

10/10 would buy again, wish I had the money and tire-mounting patience to put these up vs. 3C DHR2s f/r, as well as an Addix Verstar Mary (2.5) on the front with this on the back. Only downside is the riding homies might start giving you s*** for not riding like Gwin.
