So the regular IT front is better than the dersert IT front? :thumbsup:


I'm guessing it's got the conventional sidewall and slightly different (softer) compound. I wonder if it's got different knob height like the rears...? I've never tried the desert front, and probably won't. I've just been trying the rears as I ride on lots of decomposed (and not so decomposed) granite, so I was hoping to capture Maxxis' claim of less "cutting and chipping" due to compound. I have no real love of that hellacious sidewall and extra weight, I'll tell you that much.

One great part about the rear, I ve got 1000 miles now on mine its still got at least 50% left and unbelievably, there isnt one chunk missing out of any knobs :thumbsup:. I ride in it all pretty hard to, sand, nasty rocky stuff, loose and hard packed dirt. :thumbsup:

I tried an IT standard front out here in UT and it worked fine except that every single side knob broke off. I would hope that the desert front is more durable.

The desert is a bit taller. I never measured when they were fresh... Just enough to notice.
