The Goodyear Escape is a capable trail tire available in a wide range of sizes for any region, any terrain, and all conditions. Featuring widely-spaced and carefully siped square knobs that generate edge-to-edge grip, the Escape uses a sophisticated rubber compound to ensure traction across a broad range of terrain. While the durable, lightweight casing offers security no matter where the trail goes or how intense it gets along the way.

I've used this for about 200 miles of dirt riding as a front tire on a WTB i29 rim. It's one of the few 2.6 tires that's actually 2.6 it's extremely soft and I've been running it about 18 to 20 psi it has a very round shape to. For reference I'm 185lbs. It really smoothes out the bumps I can't believe the difference between this tire and a 2.4 Continental X King. The rubber on the tire tread and side walls is way softer than anything I've ever written. Tried to sneak one on the back of a 29er Foundry Firetower hardtail but it wouldn't fit. It's seated pretty easy after I tighten the lock washer on the valve stem. It is heavy a little over a thousand grams but I knew that when I bought it. I bought the Newton 2.4 downhill Tire to go on the back hoping it's like this one.
