I've had this tire on my GG 300 for 31 hrs. 56 yo C rider, hare scrambles,enduros and N. East trail riding. It is just starting to round the leading edge of the knobs, braking edge is still nearly square. It is shaping up to be a very good all around tire. The best part is on roots, the bike just crosses them, wet or dry. Wet off camber you have to layoff the gas of course but it still tracks right accross. Off camber hillside trails which we have a lot of, you can choose your line, you don't have to stay down next to the berm.

I will be buying another, It gives up some in the mud to an MT16, or irc M5B (?) but everywhere else it is very good. I have friends who have the 505 Cheater on similar bikes, Beta,KTM. That seems to be a tire they only like in rocky, rooty maybe wet but not muddy conditions, they always end up putting on an MT 16 etc for everything else. I feel I can leave the 525 on and use it for everything.

I also have the 216 "fatty" on the front thatbI am just as happy with. Same hours and it still is basically new.

Forgot to mention this combo has great braking grip. I can go down most hills in the woods, quicker and with more confidence that the bike will track and slow down when I want.

I run tubes 9.5-10.5 psi rear and 11-12 front btw.

Haven't ridden it yet but looks very promising. It reminds me of the old Goldentyre GT523KX that I loved. We shall see how it it works in the AZ desert!
