Today’s World Cup downhill tracks are steep, technical monsters with ever-changing conditions. Our pros needed a mid-spike tire that could handle dry, loose, blown-out corners as well as a bit of mud. The Shorty is that tire. A high-volume, dual-ply downhill casing makes the Shorty a more versatile option than a dedicated mud spike like our Wet Scream. Large, tall and slightly staggered side knobs penetrate loose soil to provide predictable, stable cornering at warp speeds. The alternating pattern of the center tread features widely-spaced knobs to clear debris, and their square shape offers plenty of braking bite. For downhill mountain biking in gnarly, mixed conditions, the Shorty can’t be beat!

Rated 4 out of 5 great traction, short life
unbelievable traction in a wide variety of conditions. A great all-around tire, though it just doesn't last long in the 3c compound. I wish they made these in a 60a.
