With Bontrager's Connection Trail tire, you get the best of both worlds. The aggressive side knobs bite into the dirt, while the connected center tread rolls fast on pavement. It can be used either as a front or a rear tire for great traction anywhere.
Works good on cross country races, center tread will give you speed on the hardball and enough tread for single track. No issues with flats as long as Ive keep it 55-60 psi. Not much tread wear from the first 400 miles.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
i used this tire on my trek 3700 and loved it for the road but once i took it into the trails it was prone to flats and provided very little traction when needed i would find myself walking it due to no traction
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
