I bought this tire along with the V-35 and studded them both. I have one 3 hr ride on them and the traction is amazing. I rode on some snow, ice and firm mud (or soft clay soil). I could feel the tire grabbing in the dirt and I purposefully lugged it up some steep trails just to see how it would hook up. I'm very happy so far, the lugs are deep and spaced far enough apart so it doesn't hold the mud. This tire is super easy to install studs into as well because of the little pocket in the middle of the lugs.
I had done a lot of research before I bought the tubes for my motorcycle but even with that, the front tire tube I purchased turned out to be the incorrect one - it did not fit my bike!
The information on Motorcycle Superstore was not clear enough for ordering the right tube for my bike.
Even more so when it would cost me over half the price of the tube to return it and get a proper replacement.
Listed as a front tire only but works just fine f/r on a 1989 Suzuki FA50. The Directional tread pattern looks similar to larger tires featured on sport bikes which looks cool. Fitment spot on, paired with new irc tubes.
