 Great tyre. Got a 42a compound 2.35 tyre and has easily taken 3/4 seconds off my race times. Well worth buying. Get from! Fast service.

Maxxis 2011 Swampthing (MSRP $0) — The rubber used in the Swampthing is firm enough that knobs won't fold, yet soft enough to hook up on wet rocks and roots. The rounded profile allows the Swampthing to hook up without digging into the soil.
