Ssooo....are carbides dead and nanobites are the replacement? I've tried nanobites...they are almost as good as carbides. Nanobites tread seems to last longer than carbides in my opinion. That was carbides biggest detractor for me.

The original buggy carbide is discontinued, opening the way for the improved Super Carbide. This tire has a modernized carbide tread with the the version 5 carcass. The Version 5 carcass adds interior support webbing for a more consistent shape and feel, even under power.
They are fantastic!

Me either, I tried those clay sweeps cellbocks, after two laps took them off threw them in the trash never again.

Listed on eBay if anyone wants the other sets.

It's more like they've crossed the current compound names off. I didn't notice that they re-named every compound.
