I saw 1 prototype end of last October and weighted it at 1690g so basically a little bit lighter than the last Nimbus Nightrider batch and the Vee

Looks like a different tread on the TA-Light casing.

Does anyone know the significance of the EaEaEa tread pattern? I wish they would have picked something else that gave the tire a purpose, maybe a more aggressive off-road tread pattern?

If its lighter I like it. My Coker with "Coker" written all over it handles well offroads. It was just friggen heavy though.

Ah now I see it. That makes way more sense than Ea Ea Ea... I would still rather just see a simple open block pattern to give a decent off-road option when the Vee Todd tires run out.

I found out that qu-ax only have their German page active. English link get a 404 response. http://www.qu-ax.com/de/detail/index...3/sCategory/52

Attached photos shows Google translate -

Not hugely detailed. Suggests it's a kind of all rounder, but not too sure how those "36" tread patterns will be in real use. Tempted to try something different.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating... Or in this case riding.

If a tread pattern consists of words, that's a sign to me that priorities were in the wrong place. It looks gimicky, even if it does work. The coker tread tire just really throws me off. I'm not sure why this is a thing with 36er tires specifically.

My immediate thought is that I'm more interested in the lighter-weight TA tyre, but I'm willing to test it, especially if it works any better off-road than the TA while still being a mostly-road tyre!

Perhaps if you knew a bit about the original non-skid...

Hey, no kidding. No wonder I said they felt thick like car tires, way overkill for a unicycle tire! Because of it's heavyness you get a nice rolling momentum though,
but nah, Im not going back

Oops my previous statement was referring to the Coker tire. If this QuAx is lighter I'd definitely give it a try.
