Well, the tire itself is lovely. As mentioned elsewhere, it is definitely not the quoted 3.45" wide, but only 3" in reality.
This puppy is hellish to get onto the rim, so make sure you have at least two tire levers before attempting a swap…
After riding this tire on every available surface, I can say that it is definitely a tire made for a bicycle, and not suitable for unicycling under real-world conditions. On the street, it is totally squirrely and difficult to ride at low pressure, and at high pressure, it is super mega hyper sensitive and difficult to master over irregular surfaces.
This tire is perfectly smooth and slick, so as expected, traction is dismal when wet, although the large footprint helps to minimize this on surfaces like wet grass… This tire is SUPER sensitive to road crown, and it basically likes to go where it wants, like some crazy horse, and the rider is just trying to hang on.
The tire is EXCELLENT for riding on a perfectly smooth, and level surface. It rolls smoothly with minimal resistance, and allows for very easy turning and cruising. I’m sure it would be terrific for uni-hockey or basketball, if you insisted on using a 24" wheel.
As much as I have tried to master it on the local roads and parking lots, this tire is just too wild for use on roads that have any sort of sideways crown, the insane turning ability is hardly comparable to my duro leopard, even at the highest pressures.
If you wanted a tire that is sick for gliding though, this might be it… I’m not there yet, so I can’t comment on how practical it really is for that. In my experience, though, the lowered rolling resistance was not worth the trade off of control offered by a DH tire. While it feels great on a very level surface, attempts to cruise around result in fighting for my life just to go in a straight line, and a complete inability to do so without waving my arms and upper body around like someone who appears to be totally out of control
I think this tire needs to stay on the 3G cruisers, not really appropriate for street unicycling as far as I can tell. Unless you have god-like control and balance mastery, this tire will turn a regular muni into a psychotic speed machine that is much harder to control than a knobby tire.
This tire turns if I even think about leaning in the far back of my mind. A tire for someone who is very relaxed and focused while riding, and not for those who need a tire that will track straight without constant minute corrections.
