I think I'd be ok with a table top front and bonkers rear, but 2.25 and 2.1 seem awfully small to me. Just don't know how much vanity I care about versus performance

They’re really not.

Great damn tire, cushy. I have heard that the sidewalls of the skinwalled ones tear easily though....I have the full black versions.

Very good traction, lateral grip and low rolling resistance, but the sides do tear on the skinwall version.

never tried but look decent and good size, I thought I'd run them since im on a specialized. But if they're bad then maybe not. It's just probably time to ditch my 1kg tires

yeah I ran them for a bit, I just found they had no grip, like literally none, everyone has their preferences though

Depends what you're doing. If you ride street and dirt, they're a little better on the street. Spesh dj tires are great they just need to Ebba specific pressure to work right. Similar to KHEs. On dirt you should run them a little soft, like 40 psi. On the streets at 60psi I actually loved them l, but that my preference.

DMR supermotos have bad sidewalls. I never had tanwalls, I've had 4 different DMR tires and blew out the wall on all of them. Might be because I ride street way more than dirt generally.

yeah I really only ride street, ran them 60-65psi, switched them out for the vans cult and my word, those vans tyres are incredible. So darn fantastic

Yeah I’ve never ran them myself but the internet consensus seems to be this.
