Duro Red Eagle Tire

Have any of you heard anything about this tire

http://www.smalltires.com/store.cfm?...0-f6c53b8ceacb

Love the thread pattern but wonder how good it will be on the trail. Some trail parks have a thread depth limit.

They're heavy. Check out the Zilla. They have a low pro tread in the 24". Weigh in at 16lbs.

I had them (briefly) on my rear wheels with the Duro Thrashers on the front. Rock Mountain was out of stock on the 24-10-11, so I got the 24-9-11 but didn't like the tall narrow rounded profile of them.


Maybe the 24-10-11 would have the more square profile like pictured on their website. I ended up going with 24-9-11 Bear Claws.

Wow! they are narrow. How are the Bear Claws, do they make allot of noise, how are they in turning and traction

The problem with the tires above is they're rounded. The bearclaws are flat. From the videos I watched of you, I think you'll be right at home with the Bearclaws. Even if you don't like them you're not out much money and you have a set for backup. They're way better than the stock crap. I like the Razr's better though.

Their 24x9x11 are round but their 24x10x11 are flatter by their info. Decided to buy the 24x10x11 and will put them on new Red Labels and if I don't like them, I'll buy something else. Like you stated, their cheap$$. We'll see how they do next month when we are at Hatfield.
