BMC Speedfox 01 - First Ride
Thanks for the shoutout. It's fast becoming the trail bike and aggressive XC tire of choice in our lineup. Way lighter than a Minion or High Roller for the people that would otherwise use a burlier tire to achieve similar levels of grip and control.

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@Travel66: WT is optimized around 35mm inner width rims but works well on 30-35mm inner. Above 35mm and the casing of the tire is going to be wider than the tread, below 30mm and the tire profile will be so round that it will affect cornering control.

E*thirteen Tire Plasma – Review
@denomerdano: The EXO layer is a sidewall insert designed for abrasion protection, it does not affect the tubeless compatibility of the tire. TR tires use a slightly different rubber compound that resists deterioration when used with liquid sealants along with a tighter fitting bead and a bead cushion that work together to provide a secure fit against the rim.

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@pakleni: We recommend using our Wide Trail (WT) tires on 30-35mm inner width rims. They are measuring true to size on the optimal 35mm rim. 25mm rim width will round out the tire profile, meaning you'll need to lean the bike farther to engage the sideknobs. In the real world this isnt as big of an issue on tires like the Rekon and Forekaster that have healthy intermediate knobs but a tire with an open transition channel like the Minion DHF would have a larger dead spot between the center and side knobs.

Mr Wolf Banger Tire Insert - First Ride
> This style of foam insert does nothing to protect the casing of a tire from getting sliced (granite or shale in these parts) so I'd still have to run 1000-1200 gram tires AND one of these? Yet so many of these foam insert manufacturers are recommending running a lighter tire to offset the weight gain. We won't tell people not to run one of these but try to do our part with DD and DH casing tires to ensure that they're not a requirement but more of a tuning option, like volume spacers in your suspension.

E*thirteen Tire Plasma – Review
Hi @denomerdano, we appreciate the shoutout here but that is not true. Our Tubeless-Ready tires feature a rubber that has been tested to maintain performance using liquid sealant through the life of the tire, in addition to tubeless-ready beads and bead cushions for rim security. You might be thinking about our skinwall 26x2.50 Minion DHF DH-Casing, wire bead, 2-ply tire (part number TB74269000). This is not a TR tire and would void the warranty if you set it up tubeless. Our skinwall 27.5x2.30 Minion DHF tires are available in a TR construction that carries a full warranty when used with any sealant on the market. The use of sealant in any of our standard casing, EXO, DoubleDown, or Tubeless-Ready Downhill tires will not degrade the rubber or void the warranty. Please feel free to PM us if you have any question about whether you can run your tire tubeless.

Yeti and Norco Factory Racing EWS Rotorua Team Bike Checks
The Aggressor is available in DoubleDown. Richie and Jared were really instrumental with developing DD technology during the 2015 season. Richie normally runs DD front and rear but occasionally will use DH-Casing rear tires if the course demands.
