Good tire for my new riding paradigm
I moved from Southern Utah where I did a lot of downhill and Brian Head bike park, on sandyrocky trails to SW Washington. My riding has shifted to more more cross country, so I decided to try this tire with less rolling resistance. So far, so good.
If I still lived in Southern Utah I would have opted for a more aggressive tire.
