OE PRODUCT: Item is new without original packaging
Bike came with 3.0 - too fat, too wobbly. Put on MAXXIS 2.8s - very nice, 20psi works best - but still heavy rubber. Trying the 2.6 RR now, and this may be the best combo of wide rubber and yet not too much weight. + sizes will climb/carve anything, but lighter and still protective is choice.
Perfect replacement tire for my pivot Les single speed
Great product at a great price. This was a replacement tire for my pivot Les single speed. Fits perfect in the rear. 2.8 was a little tight when mud was sticking so went with a 2.6 as a replacement.. this tire is fast rolling and perfect for the hard pack. Price was so good I bought two.
Ran this with Cush Core and had to plug the tire due to pinch flatting the tire (tubeless, big hole in the tire casing). Couple rides later, discovered that the casing deformed around the area, making it ride wobbly/out-of-true. Signs of a thin flimsy casing. That all said, the performance was great. It just didn't hold up. Less than 200 miles before it was trashed.
