    Sweet 2.5 Tire, WTB Dissent

    Rode this tire around the pump track & it had no slide going through the corners. Now the pump track is not the real world it can be challenging to negotiate because of the very tight area. If the track is swept & maintained it's like cherry picking on a perfectly groomed track. Took a ride today with Atlas & the New tread on 1 of my favorite loops Dominican. This tire is Fast compared to the Maxxis Minnion i normally ride, were talking very fast not just a little faster. Single track along the hillside is awesome, you can do whatever you want with the front end on this tire it responds to input extremely well. Hitler is a mine field of silt & rocks the size of golf balls to rocks the size of a soft ball. The Dissent plowed through this section with authority, very little movement from the front end almost like a hot knife through butter. If you like a front tire that gives you confidence in braking without skidding & washing out the Dissent accels at this. Very controlled braking when descending, you can jab the brake before a corner & rip out with ease. I did get it to slide on 1 corner but it was a mix of pine needles & leaf's but the slide was very smooth & easy, jabbed the right foot down & all was cool.

    If your riding AM or DH i would highly recommend this tire in the front.

    Good looking tire, I may have to try set on my ride.
    Ride hard, Drag the broken pieces back, Share lusty tales of adventure & Tell everyone, " I almost stuck the landing".

    looks like a fatter minion but much lighter with the 50d and foldable beads... wonder how well it will hold the low preassures compared to tyres with steel beads though...
