    I absolutely love them.

    I went from Ignitor on the front & crossmark on the rear to Monorails all round.

    The monorails roll extremly well on my local trails which are a mix of hardpack and loose over hard. They are very deceptive and hook up suprisingly well in corners.

    You won't be sorry - Get into them
    cheers

    I've done about 450kms and there is still life in them yet.

    if you don't mind me asking, what psi do you run? how much do you weigh?, just to have a baseline, i ordered a set that should arrive this week... how's the grip in loose soil?

    I weigh 163lbs and run 30psi front and rear.

    They grip suprisingly well in loose over hard. Be aware they drift and just when you think OH S&$T! they grab on.

    What do you mean by drift, i thought you said they were like being on rails!!! ha, LOL
    Do they drift toooo much, or just a slight pull?

    They drift in very loose sandy soil. It is predictable and it is only recently, so that may be an indicator of wear. When new they did rail in the same terrain.

    Monorail's rock!!

    Well, i installed a monorail up front, replacing a SB8, man, this tire has grip in the corners, rolls fast!!
    I was most impressed in the corners! loose over hard, and soft soil were not an issue, predicatble, very happy with it's performance!! this is a 2.1 UST version, with stan's..
    Thank's for the recommendation Pagey, 30psi was perfect!
