So my mtt front and tww back isn't really my thing. The mtt front just suuucks. It I am trying t fakie it has no grip. The tww is fine. What new set up should I go for? I was thinking either

A. Eclat ridgestone slicks f/r
B. Deharts f/r
C. Momentums f/r
D.odsy hawks f/r
Note: used on park cement, and will be run at close to max psi. Cement is dusty on/off, open to other suggestions.

Don't get the momentums seriously!
Out of them id get the eclat or the dehart

The mtt work best on actual street, I wouldn't use mine at a park at all.

Aitkens front and back or Aitken up front path in the back are some of my favorite setups

Deharts and hawks are good, id avoid momentums and im not sure about the eclats

EDIT: 2.4 in the front. 2.3 in the rear

I made a mistake there, you get the side tread touching ground, and it slips, my kenda kontacts were better there, but in dirt, ohh yes, these kill.

Why not?

I have had the same set of Momentums for almost 2 years. Replaced them yesterday with another set. They do have a thinner sidewall, so if you grind rough stuff a lot or suck at grinding, don't get em.

If you are a light grinder, why not? Mine have been great.

Well I loved mine when I first got them but after 6 months they lost all grip, and kept sliding out all the time, I smashed my hip & elbow up pretty good from them washing out, after that I took them off, they were starting to affect my confidence, so they had to go.

They're not bad tires I guess, they are cheap & light but there are better tires out there for sure.

Similar with this set up, the mtts don't like to fakie, I knew that when I made this thread, the aitken crew woul be half oh everything, so far I have started to lean towards the eclats and hawks.

Ramperas are sweet but I think you gotta break them in at first because when you first get them they're super slippery for some reason (at least that's what happened to me). They were more slippery than my United Direct tyres for some reason and the Uniteds are pretty much slick tyres. I'm still not 100% confident in their gripping capabilities when I carve stuff or do tight turns which is lame.

Edit, they make it more difficult, the side tread on the mtts slide on concrete soo much. But ive been getting sliders somewhat. I tried a fakie on a bike with fafs, it was easier, they didn't slide.
