Try-All trials tire

Trials and street riders: Consider the Try-All “Rotation,” 20 X 2.5 inch, fits 19 inch trials rim (standard). Incredible rebound qualities for preloading and prehops, and the “sticky rubber” grabs like a climbing shoe. Uses a cleated pattern tred (like found on mountaineering boots) as opposed to the dot matrix tred on Monty and Luna tires.

Little pricey at 50 bucks (including shipping), and a little hard to find in stock, but it blows away the Monty I had on my KH 24.





Yoggi at Koxx-One uses one. I think it is the same tyre you are talking about.

He will be selling them, but his site is still under construction…


Try-All tire

I just got one the other day. Rides great.
sticky compound
flatter tread print (not as round as Luna) easier to balance on
Stiffer sidewalls
can run less psi

1/8 of an inch more narrow
more expensive

wear Could go quick or slow
only time will tell

Where to get one?
they also have pictures

The exact web link for said tire is:

The 35$ list price is for the 20 X 2" model. Trials riders will want the 20 X 2 1/2 incher, which runs 10 bucks more. Throw in shipping and it’s around 55 bucks deliverd to your crib.

The tire is made in Taiwan but is distributed through France – need I say more about availability? and Bedford might do well to start stocking these since the Monty is basically not made anymore, and the Luna is a far lesser tire than the try-all.

Incidentally, “sticky rubber” technology was first developed by Charles Cole of 5.10 company (rock climbing shoes), and the “rubber” is quite durable. It’s also not rubber at all, rather a petrolium-based synthetic.


I had always heard the softer/stickier tire compounds always wore alot faster. Is this wrong, or depending on the situation?

Maxwell, et al:

My understanding from my buddy who designs climbing shoes is that “sticky” does not necessarily mean soft. Relative hardness in synthetic rubber is measured by a measurement called “durometer,” and the durometer of the stickier climbing soles is pretty high – meaning the friction coefficient is not entirely determined by the durometer (hardness). I do know the best sticky climbing shoes wear as well as the old hard ones, and perform much better.

But who knows with the try-all tire. Doesn’t seem to be real soft, but it’s the first one I’ve tried so durability is still a question. I don’t much care if it wears out a bit faster so long as it gives me a slight edge.


what about the Echo Mod tire? anybody have any experience with that one?

Yeah, I’ve got an echo. It’s noticeably smaller than a monty of luna, but seemed to preform somewhat similar. It did seem to develop a bulge after ~10-15 hours of use. Unfortunately, that’s about all I was able to use it.
