After easily mounting the tyres it was time to ride.
Christoph and I both tested the tyre at the same time. He rode them a little longer than I did and spent some time with them in La Palma, one of the volcanic Canary Islands. After testing, he was pumped about how they rode. Running the rear tyre at 2.1 bar and front tyre at 1.8 bar they give you great control and oodles of grip. Note that they are definitely made for wet to dry conditions, but not for mud. When everything was dry, the tyres preformed perfectly, but as soon as it gets wet, they start to lose grip. When cornering, they will not let you down and they keep you planted. With the correct air pressure neither the TRS Race nor the TRS Plus carcass will fold over under heavy loads. That means that the lugs remain upright and dig into the ground every time. Burping should also never be an issue.
I ended up spending time with the tyre in mud and snow, unlike Christoph who rode mostly dry trials. I found the tyres’ handling took getting used to. This doesn’t mean that they are bad for such situations, they still have huge lugs, but they are definitely better in dry conditions. Overall, both Christoph and I found the tyres to be super and a great recommendation for the Enduro rider who likes it dry.
