By far--The best

VERY happy with this tire. Used in a GNCC race and got excellent traction in wet, slick and dry conditions. Been using on single track in sandy loam with roots and rocks and the thing works even better!!! I have had gummy soft terrains, and they are good, but no longevity. This botes just as good, but WAY better longevity. About 40 hrs. on this tire, and I'm barely seeing wear. Pretty amazing actually. Highly recommended.
M59 front MX tire

I only have about four rides on this tire and it seems to be holding up well. Traction under all conditions has been flawless. It corners better and holds a line better than any other front tire I've tried.

We are in dry, hardpack season,already. So far the M59 has worked well... Sticks and no sliding out in corners. It also has worked well on our roots,and rocks. Only a few miles,will see about wear later.

I've tried other Bridgestones as well as Michelin and Pirelli. This is by far my favorite. I ride a combination of some pavement, rocky desert, sand and woods. This tire works well everywhere and wears like iron. I can't believe a soft terrain tire can hold up so well in sharp basalt rock and pavement use. Currently I have over 600 miles and there is zero chunking. The 203 and 403's were chunking badly by this time. Can't go wrong with this tire.

Great tire used for 400 mile dual sport on a 450 and shows little wear but has great traction.

I bought this tire on a recommendation and he was right. With other tires I would be nervous heading into corners at high speed for fear of washing out. This tire grabs and holds. Even now with a few hundred miles on it, it is still performing well. I'll be sticking with this tire for a while.
M59 21" knobby

I'm a woods only rider in NH. We ride lots of rock, roots and mud. I had been using a Pirelli MT16 which works great for those conditions...The reason I switched to the M59 was the Pirelli felt like it was rolling over in the turns. The M59 is a huge improvement, it’s very predictable. I only hope it takes the abuse of the rock gardens.

This is the stock tire that came with my 300 KTM and it has proven to me to be the best front tire I have ever used. I had about 1525 miles on the stock M59 and it was still holding up very good. I installed new M59 just before a cross-country race, the tire never let me down from mud, roots, rock and sand, you can't go wrong with this tire.

Great tire for the New England and Upstate NY woods riding. OEM for both my KTMs. I tried other brands/styles and always come back to this front tire. It holds a line equally in the rocks and mud. Durability is excellent too.
