Review: Delium Rugged Tires Cut Costs, Not Performance
I think that a licensed chemical engineer could help here. Establishing a universal test for tires could be very informative. BUT the manufacturers wouldn't like it and that is why the media won't do it. That is why they all use different numbers, acronyms and names. Imagine that it could be proved that the X tires that cost 30% less than Y , have the same compound.... I think it is all about marketing.

Review: Delium Rugged Tires Cut Costs, Not Performance
@pasteque51: The 3C compound was the pioneer!!! regarding grip. You are right. Then came the Black chilly and then came Schwalbe. I still recall my minion dhf 3C. I consider at the moment the Shorty an equivallent to my Magic Mary as a front tire. Shorty is also lighter. But during the years the sidewall endurance for Maxxis rear tires has been, according to my experience, awfull. I can not even count how many HR 2 have i thrown away because of a side wall puncture. They corrected things with DHR 2 though....And if you want to go for maxxis you MUST chose 3C. Or you will surely have problems in the winter. I tried Michelin in 2017 and they were destroyed in one race! Even though it was Megavalance...but still one race? I have on the back Schwalbe's Big Betty....Second day of riding i saw some pieces missing. But this is my personal (as yours) experience. Based on the terrain i am riding and other factors (my weight, brake usage etc).I am still willing to try new things as long as they are cheaper than the popular solutions out there. Still not gonna change my favorite combo for races, but for bike parks ..why not.

[Updated] Video Round Up: Finals Highlights, POVs & More from Red Bull Rampage 2022
Without any disrespect to the old guns, i think that the venue needs new blood. Something like 10 or less protected riders (the winners from last year) plus 10 new ones.This could spicy things a bit, make it more competitive and maybe more fun to watch. It looks like a game of sponsors nowadays. Understandable since it is a sponsored event and maybe it would be also harsh to those who can't keep up with those long-named tricks...

Review: Delium Rugged Tires Cut Costs, Not Performance
Am i the only one that has seen an obvious deterioration of quality on the big brands out there? The last two years i see my tires getting destroyed faster than before.... I think that riders could try and be a little more open minded and try new tires from other alternative companies. What could really happen? I mean we spend so much money on this necessary evil... Maybe we could stop crying that "it looks like this and that" , and just try it. Who knows maybe it also performs like this and that .....and we could save some bucks and support the other players in the market. 2 main players in a market is not good..
