cool review, thanks!
Anyone else have any experience with these?
I just got a new bike that came with the XG pro.
I'm too lazy to switch to my Michelin Mud 2's (plus I'm just a Masters racer, so why not?) so I will be racing the XG's twice this weekend; September 17-18.
I will try to remember to report back if I notice a tangible difference between the XG's and the Mud 2's.
Just following up. I raced the clincher XG pros twice this weekend on dry, grassy courses. I weigh about 188 lbs and ran them with about 34 lbs pressure. I hit more than enough places that could have caused pinch flats so I would give them high marks there. I also found them every bit as grippy as my Mud 2's.
If I have a different experience on a muddy or snowy course I will re-post.
I have both the clinchers and tubs of the XG.
love them in mixed conditions and on sandy courses. as stated too much mud and they get slippery.
i find them pretty supple and can run them reasonably low and they still feel good. you can find them for a decent price if you look around.
I ran the XG clincher last year, and guess I'm in the minority for not liking it. It was low volume, and I pinched once despite running higher pressures than I would have liked (I had the 32, presumably better in the 34). I also didn't think it handled cambered grass well. I've switched to the PDX this year, and - one race in - am very happy with the change.
As you should be -- your results show it.
