Treat your favorite sled to some new rubber from Nashbar. The Nashbar Flow Mountain Bike Tire is supple and strong with aggressive lateral treading for great cornering at any pressure. On the spine of the tire, the knobs are a bit subdued maximizing your acceleration and top speeds, but knobby enough to barrel straight up some crazy inclines.
30 TPI is supple for excellent lower-pressure traction
I use a bike to get everywhere around town. I also do trail riding 3-4 times a week. I have super expensive tires and wanted to preserve them while training, so I bought this super cheap-o to get a lot of my basic rides on some other tread besides my good ones.
This tread was super difficult to install. A two person or tire iron type job. The wire bead was hard to keep on the rim and it kept falling off - push on one side, fall off on the other - it was like a game of whack-a-mole.
The first ride it got a flat. Not sure how or why, never found the puncture and haven't investigated very much either. I get the sense the tread doesn't resist puncture, but that's anecdotal at this point. But it's big, heavy treads help with some serious dirt. Turns make the big treads flex and you can feel that when riding. Not so great in hard pack, very turns single-track with light gravel.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
