Our LG1 dual-ply downhill tires have finally made it to market and are well-worth the wait. Carrying over the same tread that made our TRS tires a cult classic, our LG1 tires offer a stable, supportive casing, and excellent puncture protection at a surprising weight. Our LG1 tires carry over the same tread pattern as the TRS tires, and also use tapered Apex inserts, which dramatically improve grip under cornering and braking, decrease rolling resistance, and dramatically increase the tire’s puncture resistance. On Race tires, there’s an added a layer of woven aramid reinforcement that not only maximizes air retention, but better protects against sidewall cuts and punctures. Both Race and Plus tires use a slow rebound, tacky rubber throughout the tire, but the Race version uses high-tack rubber on the side knobs to maximize cornering and off camber grip.
