 They roll super fast but still have a lot of cornering grip. They're perfect for hard-pack and also grab really well when its dusty. You can choose a harder compound if you want them to roll even faster than they already do. I'll be running these on race course with long pedal sections.

 I've been running this tyre on the back this season and all I can say is it's brilliant! In silty dirt, deep pumice, loose rocks, and giant bolders it has yet to make me think twice about trusting its grip! Lean it over, she loves it!

 My Whistler summer tire! When it's hard and fast this thing will slay A-line and still hold on in fast corners when the upper mountain is a little wet. Tire life is also amazing on the triple-compound tires. Three long days on the mountain in September and the tires look like they can stand another three trips!

 best tire iv ran. its fast, and has great traction. better than the minion. its great for the back. the two types are nice. if you want a more sticky tire, they have the gooey gluey. and if you want a tire that'll stick in the ground and be a little faster, they have the triple nano compound. its an all around great tire.

 At first I didn't really like these tires. They are really awesome on anything hard-packed but in the dusty dry days it really seems unpredictable

Schwalbe Wicked Will (MSRP $77.75) — The Wicked Will is a DH specific 26x2.5 tire. It comes in a Triple rubber compound, with a double carcass casing to reduce pitch flats in the rough stuff. New LST beads make this tire stay in place. -Triple compound rubber means that the outer knobs are softer for grip and the inner tread is firmer to allow a lower rolling resistance. -Gooey Gluey compound tires are softer across the whole tread pattern and offer greater grip at a higher rolling resistance -Limited Slip Technology (LST) has been re-vamped for the 2010 tire models. The bead has a tighter fit and the rubber is tackier to keep it in place when hard on the brakes or getting zesty. 2x67epi, 160kg, 20-50PSI, GG 64-559, bk-sk, HS415.
