The Aggressor is the new kid on the block and appears to be settling in quite nicely. It's just so darn likeable and down for anything. With a nice moderate tread profile that rolls easily but still offers plenty of traction in a variety of conditions, we'd just as soon mount this tire on our XC bikes as we would our enduro rigs. And speaking of enduro use, Richie Rude was smashing this tire all over the Enduro World Series. Sure, we tested this tire hard, about as hard as our 160-pound bodies could.
The dual-compound tread gave this tire excellent roll characteristics with a harder center tread and slightly softer cornering knobs for increased traction and bite. If you were previously running a DHF or DHR in the rear, we think you'll be surprised by how the relatively moderate tread profile of the Aggressor prevents the tire from squirming around in corners when you really push it hard. It might not be the best choice for mud, but anywhere else you'll find yourself asking, "Where have you been all my life?"
