Their next closest tire is the Avon Trailrider which also looks promising and gets excellent reviews. I was just hoping for more of a compromise leaning towards gravel/fire road and offroad. Not a full dirt tire and not a 90/10 tires like the Trailrider.

I am going to put on the Shinko 804/805 tires this summer instead.

If anyone gets to try these out I'd be curious.
Try the Mitas E07.... Should be in stock in Canada by the end of april. Try I've had them on 2 bikes and they are great.
