I'm really glad I tried these funky looking tires. The tread pattern is a dead-on replica of the 1:1 Genius tire made in Brazil and looks great in person. These work really well in loose terrain (among the best I've tried in loose dirt) and as all-around trail tires. The only place where performance lacks a bit is on wet, slippery rocks, where the smaller contact patch created by the chunky lugs can make it a bit harder to find traction.
