    cause I't's single ply and light, Thats what I want for a base tire for the trails around here. I plan on getting the 2 ply high roller/minion and highroller supertacky's for different riding. My buddy who rides pro pretty much made sure I only bought Maxxis. He swears by them. I figure if they are good enough for him they are good enough for me.
