Great rear tire for n.texas
-very puncture resistant
-corners as good as a rear tire needs to
-decent grip for climbs (which is more technique than anything)
-tread pattern promotes speed over traction for braking, you have to give up something
Great North Texas tire which is basically moon dust over hard pack. running this on the rear with a racing ralph up front and working good.
I like over the kenda small block 8 i was running in the rear before. the sb8 is fast, but damn it sucks for braking and climbing..
for the money it's a great rear tire.
