The grip on these tires is UNREAL. Andrew at Biketiresdirect helped me decide on the tire set up for rear and when mounted on the Turbine R 30mm(also purchased at BTD, it looked way bigger than it was supposed to which meant more tread traction from the knobs). Crazy how this tire managed to keep me upright in the correct riding position on some tight bermed and flat turns that I'm used to slowing down on. Will be purchasing the WIDE trail soon.
So Many different tires to choose from. I finally decided to go with the Maxxis Aggreessor EXO. Tire hooks well in all conditions. Wet as well as loose shale. I feel secure on loose down hill runs. Tires have proved me with the xtra confidence to continue t push myself !
