Ok, so a while back I finished my trials unicycle and told you all about the Monty Eagle Claw that I got from Trialin USA. I had not riden the tire at that point, but I have several hours on it now, so I feel that i can speak to the tires overall performance.
Monty Eagle Claw 19" trials tire
Price $65.00 US give or take a buck or two.
My height 6’
My Weight 200lbs
VIZ 19 46mm rim
I have spent about 15 hours on the tire at this point and see only general wear. The tire is very sticky and even with more air pressure than most people (because I weigh 200 pounds, I keep my pressure higher to keep from bottoming out) I find that the tread pattern flattens right out so that you always have all the knubs on the ground at contact. The tire rides quite well, and I have yet to fold it (highest drop for me to date is 4’6"). The sidewall is super beefy and the tire reacts very well to the “pump” (not air pump). I find that I get much more energy return on a “pump” from this tire than I did from my Kenda and Luna. It is a bit pricey at $65.00 but I feel that the coolness to price ratio is about 4/1.
Thanks, I hope this helps
All I know is that its a pretty nice tire and I will probably fork out the dough to replace it, as I have a problem with CC’s and Lunas folding on me. I am currently running 17lbs in this tire and it has never folded or bottomed out to the rim yet. I love the tread and grip, so for me, it’s worth every penny.
