Anyways I have not run the tires yet. First impression of the "rubber" is that it seems to be similar to the so called "Japanese Rubber". Ie. very closed cells compared to the more open celled Ellegi and FAST. I have heard from others (Sparksy you reading this ), and somewhat unscientifically found myself that this "Japanese" rubber works better on dustier surfaces. Do you guys have any insight into this?
It might explain it, but it doesnt excuse false advertising... oh wait, I didnt see the "est " 12%. I assume est = estimated.
;D

AMG, not sure if I should comment on the Japanese v conventional rubber while I'm in such a shit stirring mood... But the jap rubber did work better on dusty than the equivolent shore rating of a conventional tire. Also wears better on rough tracks. For me, Japanese rubber (the 2brands I have used are speedmind and active) is much better for carpark tracks that are tipically rougher and not as clean as a permanent facility.

I have no idea about these Mono tires as they are not available here. So I dont know how similar they are, good or bad.

We've weighted Mugen fasttires for mtx-3 against our tires. It was a 42F tire, it was around 13%-14% heavier.

Anyways, our tires have more foams on them. Around 2mm in the front and 3mm in the rear.

We hope you get a chance to run them, we are sure you will like them.

Thanks

We are not sure the exact diameter of Ellegi tires, but when compare to Ellegi multi-spoke, our tire is about 2mm more in the front and 3mm in the rear.


Thanks

do these tires fit the MTX-3? I am currently running fast tires (the ones for mtx-3) and wanted to start trying new tires but my LHS told me mtx-3 needs a special 2* offset. Any comments?

They fit MTX-3 perfectly, you just have to adjust the pivot balls alittle.

Default Guys

Don't worry if this tires are heavier or ligther than the competitors. Just try it, and you will like it.
If you like it, and this are heavier or ligther than others, doesn't matter

OK for the record on the front tire:

42 front Mono - 2mm more tire - 27g
42 front Ellegi - 21g

Works out to 24g more rotating mass when used at full size. Not necessarily a problem but I just thought I would point it out.

Not a problem as I rarely run my tires at out of the box heights, but to claim to be 12% lighter and not be, regardless of diameter is a bit crappy.

AMG, can you true a pair down to the same size as a pair of elligi and weigh them?
