Ritchey WCS Z Max Evolution 29x2.1 Tubeless Ready Tire
The Ritchey Z-Max Evolution is the latest version of Ritchey's classic Z-Max tire, a rider favorite for well over a decade. The Evolution uses nearly the same tried and true tread pattern with shorter, wider spaced lugs for lighter weight and reduced rolling resistance.
Bought 2 of these tires based on the great reviews. Mounted one on a Mavic Crossmax ST, the other on an Easton EA90XC. Both new tubeless wheels. Easy enough to mount and the bead sealed well, but one tire had a pinhole leak in sidewall. I purchased another and Pricepoint was quick to refund. I'm sure once sealant is added the pinhole leak isn't a problem, but I thought a new tire on tubeless wheels should be able to hold air in my dining room, without sealant. Sidewall seems thin, but they are sealed up nicely. Ride soon.
