A follow-up on the Answer Carve tires.

I took a little drive up to Central Texas BMX to get some riding in. If you haven’t been there, you should make the trip, if only for the Super National this year. They’ve got the UCI am starting hill, paved turns and a great facility in the Travis County Park.

I’ve ridden these tires since the just after the Grands and they’ve been great. I’ve been doing sprints in a parking lot, and they have low rolling resistance. I’m running a 1.85 front and 1.6 out back.

But after last night I can say they truly shine on PAVED Turns. The Carves hook-up really well on dirt turns at Lone Star BMX, just as all tires are expected to, But on paved turns they are magic. Lean the bike and just point it where you want it to go. You’re going to be hard pressed to make these tires slide. Even unweighting the rear tire didn’t make it break traction.
