shinko trail pro

Great tire! Put one on in the spring time and still running the same tire well into the winter. I run it at 10 psi. On my 08' ktm 250sx. This thing hooks up and grabs where knobbies just spin. It works pretty well. Especially in the wear and grip department. Easily twice the life of a good quality knobby, with way better grip. Haven't pinch flatted either. I'm 220lb without gear.

Great tire!

I didn't buy it to use on dirt, but I love it just the same. It's on the front of my Sportster, and it's about worn out now (3,300 miles on it). Handles wet, dry and snowy roads without issue. I run it at 38psi and it held up remarkably well, even on my latest 1,800 mile trip. I know my use of this tire is unusual, but if anyone else is thinking of using it the same way... Do it!

19 inch trials tire

Tested only 30 miles mostly sandy hardpack, rocks, gravel. Tubliss system at 5 P S I is what works in my MT43 18 inch tires. This tire is 11.5 pounds compared to 13.5 for the Mt43. But it is a 19 low profile and seems to be built as tough as the Pirelli. It corners as good maybe better. It has good downhill braking. Too early to tell about wear. No wet roots etc but it feels like it will work as well as any 18 inch trials tire for trail riding. Good choice for the 19 incher on trails.

Worked well but cuts very easily

I liked the 19 enough to buy an 18 but soon after I started getting cuts thru the cords. Like one every ride or 30 miles. With my tubeless system that won't hold air. I plugged the cuts and they held air but cut soon again. The tire just cannot hold up to sharp rocks and wears fast.

Smaller than other trials of same size

This tire is not the same circumference as other trials tires of the same size. This one is noticeably smaller. The tire also has a rounded design rather than the flatter design of other brands. The tire does grip well on rocks and hard pack, but is quite loose on cornering with 18 psi. I've gotten 1 ride and I've already ordered a Pirelli MT 43.

Worst tire ever

I always wanted to try a trials type tire on my KDX, why'd I pick this one? It just did not work for me, I tried running it from 5psi all the way up to 18psi. It actually worked best at 18. Anything less than 15psi and it's like running on a flat tire, it has very soft sidewalls and you can feel it falling over on itself as you are riding. Very unstable at speeds 20mph and up. Any time I'd try putting any power on it it'd kick to either side and try to swap out.

Terrible Tire

Despite being one of only two 19-inch trials tire available, I would avoid this tire. Three days on Colorado trails and the tire looks like, well, a used tire! Knobs have totally worn on one power side of tread. As well, it has a very round profile, so the contact to the ground limited. Finally, it leaves the rims totally exposed to rocks on the side. Better to get a DOT approved knobby for hard terrain than this tire.
