Legendary tire designer Frank Stacy provides another race-proven mountain bike tire design in the XR2. The value-minded and super-versatile XR2 Comp offers outstanding quickness and cornering stability on hard-packed or loamy cross country courses.
- Fast rolling with consistent, predictable traction
- Excels in loose-over-hardpack and loamy conditions
If you want to ride off-road trails, this is a good upgrade from the LT-3 tires that come stock on many of the entry-level Trek mountain bikes. It has better traction in the loose stuff, and corners way better in the dirt.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
