    Anyone tried new Hutchinson Scorpion Gold Elite?

    I've got a chance to buy a pair at very nice price, so I'd be glad if someone shared his opinion on this tyre...

    Thanks

    I have some experiance with the scorpion tread pattern. my bike came with scorpion air lites. I dont know the difference but my set wore down fairly quick and vibrate a good bit if you ride any on asphault b/w trails. Once mine wore down, theyre terrible on leafy hills or anthing wet. Hope this helps but remeber, this is for the scorpion air lites (2.00 width).

    I have used the Scorpion Gold Elites. I am not too sure if they are new to the Hutchinson MTBR line per se.

    I am not too sure how to describe the tyres, but from my experience I enjoyed it as a front tyre but found as a pair they did not perform too well in sandy conditions or deep mud unless you were using the 1.75" version. I find them good in rocky and dry conditions but not in hardpack situations. Furthermore, they wear at a reasonable pace and yeah they do happen to have a vibratey (Ok, thats not a word but you get the picture) feel to them when used in a pair.
    Trev!
