There are plenty of riders who’ve made the decision (conscious or not) to be begintermidiates for life and when it comes to casings you could make the argument that some could benefit on the climbs from dialing it back now that some companies (Maxxis) are doing their stickiest compounds in lighter casings. MaxxGrip/EXO for example. Especially lighter riders or riders using inserts as well. But, much of the year here even the true-Blue trails can put a good rider on their ass running undergunned on rubber. For riders still trying to progress or riding Blacks/Double Blacks semi-aggressively I maintain that you just get stronger uphill to compensate for the weight and every minute added to every ride is banked and paid back with interest at the end of the year with zero ride pausing or ride ending flats.
