    I assume you had some input in these designs, so would it also be safe to say that these would be the one tire to rule them all and the last tire any of us will ever need to buy? After all you are what many would refer to as the tire guru, correct?

    They look slow, but thats just conjecture. How are the sidewalls, reinforced? Tubeless ready?

    100% my tread design.

    A "Most Conditions" tire, but hardly the tire to do everything. No such animal.

    Shiggy,

    Let me know if you need any testing on the West side...I mostly ride Tokul. 29'er...

    I like what I see so far in the tread design.

    Are they tubeless ready? Either way, lots of testing can be done on freshly groomed logging roads.. ;-) Actually our trails are in great shape right now.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Please let us know when you get the tire specs. I'd be interested in trying it out, but only if it's tubeless ready.

    Hopefully it will be true to size.

    They are not tubeless ready. Maxxis would not give us that option at the time.

    Too bad, it looks like a really good tread pattern.

    Subscribed to follow up... As a tyre nut, I'm interested.

    Is it just me who thinks there is a market for single ply, 2.1"-2.35"max tyre with a really SOFT compound? Particulary one with a tread geared towards a front. A small sticky tire would be kinda dumb as a rear, but for the front I think it would work.

    Most tyres with soft compound in 2.35" are more likely 2-ply (too heavy) and you'll be hard pressed to find a tyre smaller than that in a soft compound.

    They look great. Hopefully a UST tire will follow.

    Interesting design, think it would maybe be of interest if the side knobs were taller and didn't follow the profile of the tyre as much, bit squarer.

    Sweet, tubes for me. . look nice and open

    And side knobs look interesting, would like to hear how these perform (particularly through patch of sand at speed).

    Seems like if they were more square on the sides it would float around

    The tread is deeper than you think.

    Reliefed top blocks look really good for loose over hard.

    I'm curious about the thoughts behind the diamond shape for the side knobs. Can you enlighten me?

    thx.
