Love this tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I can get pretty picky about tires- tires and wheels can completely change the way your bike rides, how confident you are in the corners, and how bad you suffer on the climbs. This tire harkens back to the Panaracer Cinder (which was a fantastic tire). Rounded profile for consistent release when you push it too far (so you have a chance of recovering). Fast rolling. Haven't had any issues with flats, and the tubeless setup went really smooth (with a floor pump and XTR wheels). Beautiful. I love these tires.
