    Bontrager XR0...?

    Hey
    In my neverending search for the perfect tire,I came across the new Bontrager XR0's,claimed weight is 400gr for the 1.9 and 440gr for the 2.1,which is nice.
    I've seen a bike with these in a race early this year,but failed to get a opinion from the rider,I'm thinking of using the 2.1 in the rear,to go with my Rocket Ron up front,for some summer marathons races.
    So anyone here has used the XR0's?
    Durability,flat resistance,grip...?
    Thanks!
    Gajas what?

    I saw those and have been looking around for some kind of input as to how they ride. Post up if you find out. Looked interesting.

    GAry-FIsher team subaru uses them on their 29ers. Known as 29-0. Front or rear use depending on terrain.

    Running an XR0 in the back on my Anthem X. Fastest tire I've used yet. The 2.1 is a true 2.1; measured out at 53mm+.

    Great traction in the dry and tacky, haven't been out with it in the mud, nor do I plan on it.

    Do you have them setup tubeless? or does anyone for that matter?

    Yep. Set up on NoTubes Crest 26" rims.

    Extremely easy, and no leaks, bubbles, or anything like you get with some other brands, like Conti.

    Sounds like they set-up very easy tubeless - nice! Has anyone else used these tires so far this year? I have my eye on the 29er version. Curious.
