Kx 500 AT 81 Tire.......don't beleive bad reviews online

Post by Grassy knoll » Sun Aug 14, 2016 10:44 pm

Massachusetts riding goes back n forth rapidly from literally solid rock slab trails to powdery deep sand.Traditional mx hard tires tight tread pattern I've never liked and in sand or must clog up and quit...The AT 81 ISN'T MX specific. Don't know why.But the ratings say wears incredibly fast.6 hours....That is shining example of don't beleive everything you read online..I've got 20 plus hard hours and knows barely beginning to round edge let alone wear....rubber so soft flexible you can move knob bikes with fingers ...this tire grabs on slab...and because it's a straight line wide space non traditional hard pan design it acts like a paddle in soft sand and shovels loose gravel baseball sized....As far as around here it's best rear I've ever run 8n Massachusetts terrain

That's good to know someone with first hand experience..
Post some pics of the tire when you get the chance...
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.
