Feedback from Actual Users

  • Positive: surprisingly grippy; full of grip; look really aggressive; look good; thick tread; really hard to get flats; runs smooth and fast with all of the tread being equal height all the way around the tire; really good traction on all types of dirt; helps you stick landings and roll out if you land on non-smooth terrain or the side of a dirt landing;
  • Neutral: designed mainly for dirt; reminds me of a bigger Maxxis Holy Roller;
  • Negative: slower than street tires on street (more of a given); NOT the best for park; you're more of a risk to slide out on park transitions; the thread wears down pretty fast (especially on the front); a bit pricey;
