I can't do the mt43. I know you guys love this tire but I'm not a fan yet.
Who's "you guys"? I don't ride frequently with anyone that uses a trials tire.

I have a new Pirelli Scorpion XCMH waiting to be installed for the Gilligans tour except in days not hours. DOT baby:banana:

You will love that tire until you see how long it lasts. Very short life, no chunking, cracking, or tears, just wears out real fast. 1,000 miles at best and that's pushing it. Already run 2 off the Beta after the MT43.

That is what Pirelli car tires are known for... great performance (sticky) but poor longevity because they're so sticky/soft...
 
1,000 miles, I've hit the Holy Grail of tires than:banana: I go through rear tires a lot quicker than that. At 60-70 miles per ride, that means I should get ~14 rides outta this tire. Never gonna happen with what I do to tires.

Well see, I have liked the fronts. It's just a tire, it will get changed out when needed and then evaluated.

I do know I am done with the AT81RC. For me, running it at 15lbs, it still seems like it wants to skate everywhere. Not comfortable going below that PSI if that is what it takes to make it hook-up, no thanks.

I'll take a 1000+ miles on a tire. I still think I will try the 606.

Oh shit, you were serious:doh: Great street tire and prolly good granite tire but will be the shits for any loose, rocky stuff or hard-packed with a loose top soil. Too hard of a compound tire.

Give it a shot:cheers:
