Flat tracking with that rear tire? looks good man. You race in Columbus this weekend?

Running a trials tire for a while. They work great on rocky terrain. Also going to do a 500 mile ride up in Colorado in late July and we will hit spurts of road for up to 20 miles at a time. It's also DOT approved so the knobbies won't fly off when it heats up after several miles of road use.

Nope, didn't get to race this past weekend. Too much other going on. I need a fix though, soon!

Definitely different than "regular" mx-style tire. On rocks it's like glue though...

This is the tire that's on there. Not many choices for a DOT approved trials tire. Pirelli MT 43 and this one below by Shinko of all people. It's the only tire Slavens Racing sells and they pretty much know their stuff on this though.

The all new Shinko Trail Pro 255 radial trials tire offers trail riders an affordable choice and a trials tire to fit 18″ and 19″ rims. Shinko is the first and only manufacturer to offer trials tires for MX bikes with 19″ rear rims. The Shinko 255 Trail Pro is designed to meet the demands of off-road riding, not just trials competition.
Flexible radial carcass
Excellent grip on rocks and slick terrain
Lightweight – reduces un-sprung weight for improved performance
Excels in gnarly single-track terrain
Available in 18″ & 19″ rear
DOT approved

I've fallen in love with the maxxis si rear, for where I ride (piney woods) it's perfect. I have often wondered about the trials rear, so many woods racers love it but I don't want a rear tire that hooks up under braking. I actually prefer a rear tire after it's worn a bit and flipped.

Yeah, I actually haven't ridden on this particular Shinko yet. I'll definitely give my feedback.
