E-Thirteen All Terrain G3 Downhill Tyre
DescriptionThe new and improved E-Thirteen All Terrain G3 Downhill Tyre hooks up superbly in steep, rough, and loose terrain, but rolls surprisingly well. Directional siping on all knobs allow them to spread and gain more traction under braking and in the wet. Accordion cuts on the side knobs provide plenty of grip and support in hard cornering, while allowing the knobs to conform to the ground without the squirming feeling that you can get from long knobs.
Both the Plus and the Race use a slow-rebound, tacky compound, but the Race is even grippier in the side knobs however it is at the cost of longevity. MoPo is an ultra-tacky, low-rebound rubber for better tread wear and faster rolling.
The G3 Downhill is great up front, or as a rear tyre. We suggest the Race on the front for more grip, and a Plus on the rear for longer life.
Who's it for: The dual ply casing on the G3 Downhill tyre make this a great choice for Aggressive All Mountain, Enduro Racing and Downhill riding. It is for situations where support, puncture resistance, and consistency under cornering forces are the main consideration. This does come with a weight penalty which makes them unsuited to lighter Trail and XC usage.
Suggested terrain: Hardpack, loose over hard, medium, and deep loose soil. The only place this tyre may suffer is in deep mud.
Pros: Amazing support and grip up front, without sacrificing speed loss. Improved casing.
Cons: Not the best option for Trail/XC due to the weight penalty of the dual ply casings. Check out the the G3 Trail or Enduro tyres which are better suited for Trail/XC bikes on the front.
