I was lucky enough to snag one of the new Stumpjumper Evos which came with Specialized's new tires. I'm definitely a tire nerd and have tried numerous brands and models of tire over the last few years. Most recently I've been riding e13 LG1r Mopo and Plus and really like this tire setup year-round. Despite loving the e13s I decided to give the Specialized tires a chance and I'm thoroughly impressed. Traction is excellent in all conditions including nasty wet winter trails. The casing is noticeably lighter than the LG1rs but so far no flats. I like the more damped feeling of the LG1r casing better but it's not a deal breaker for me with the Trail casing on the Specialized tires. I may go with the Gravity casing if I decide to stick with these Specialized tires. So far, no regrets and I think the new Specialized tires are a solid choice and much better than the last generation.
