Dang. Those look really really nice... Love the dimensions. Thank you for not making them 5.75...

I may have to get some debonder to release my Treps from my new Carter Fab wheels...

Awesome job.

It is Alien inspired compound. Just like the Roswell crash metal...it's light but really resilient and sticks like Alien snot. Ever see the stuff that comes out of a little grey's fingertips?

I have had the chance to test the 2.2 Pitbull Growlers with Alien technology for about a month. The first test was on the U4RC track in Cherry Valley. This track has big rocks and hills with loose dirt. Tires had great traction on the rocks and they did great in the sweeping turns. The sidewalls hold up the high speed turns with out folding over like the others. It is not a big lug tire so you don't have the rolling resistance.
The second test was out at KOH 2015. Where the ground was sandy and packed. Do to the rain the week before some of the sand was moist which the tires had no problem cleaning out. Again the tires did excellent on the hard pack. The tires never broke traction on the starts. These tires are a most buy if you are planning on being competitive at rock racing. They work in any condition with out a flaw.

I know these were designed as racing/bashing tires, but how would they do crawling? Are they too soft?
