Vee Rubber Mission 27.5x2.10 AM/XC 120 TPI Folding Tire
The Mission is for mountain bike trail riding or racing. Ramped and chisel shaped center and transition knobs set this tire apart from the others. Diamond shaped extra transition knobs provide great cornering. As the knobs provide superior traction, Vee Rubber recommends this tire for mainly for medium – hard conditions, but it can be used for many trails.
This was my first Vee Rubber tire. It came with a wobble in the tread. They were willing to replace it, but I had to pay for the shipping...I decided it wasn't worth it & kept it. I mounted it tubeless without any problems. I've ridden this tire on the back for about a year now. When new, it did ok...fast & light. With just a little wear, it seems to be losing a lot of grip (not that it had a lot to start with). I do a lot of cross country/freeride, and the trails are hard-pack, loose-over-hard-pack, and rocky. I need something with a little more bite. I won't buy this tire again, and probably not a Vee Rubber tire again. I'll stick with the tried & true Kendas or Maxxis'...they're more expensive, but worth it.
