  • Animal GLH Tire

    Great tires (product review)

    The Good:

    Heard they last long
    Good grip
    look good
    still have skinny options

    The Bad:

    A bit heavy

    Overall Review: These tires look and feel great but one thing is coming from demolition momentum's they do feel a bit heavy but its 100 percent worth it considering the looks and the great grip and durability.

  • The Good:

    big platform
    durable pins
    good grip
    look good good color choices

    The Bad:

    nothing my favorite pedals I have had

    Overall Review: These my are my pedals of choice because of the big platform and good grip makes it so you rarely slip an get the terrible shiners and durable pins that take a long time to wear down. Also very good colors.

  • The Good:

    No pins popping out, heavy outer plates

    The Bad:

    Thinner weaker inner plates, the half link stiffens up leaving a stiff link tried using chain tools to fix but still persisted also halflink has a smaller distance so feels either too short or too long. Chain has a different length then a 510 slighly longer.

    Overall Review: Not as great as i thought but no breaks or real issues. Switched back to 510hx and found the sweet spot on my dropouts. With no halflink With the 710 it felt short or too long so has a different spacing then the 510 regular full link types

  • The Good:

    Everythings good

    The Bad:

    The hollow bolts will snap eventually especially if you tighten them hard

    Overall Review: Looks cool and hasnt slipped but get solid bolts for it

  • The Good:

    Everything except...

    The Bad:

    The pins that are smaller internally hexed fill with dirt and strip easy the tool allen it comes strips too The other pins on it are the more common type and are fine to replace

    Overall Review: Needs better pin design,

  • The Good:

    Durable, hard compound, ran over a big rusty bent nail went through the tread and sidewall but still going without any visible holes, keeps its shape, run at 85 psi the 2.1.
    Pulled out lots of glass pieces and no flats ever except for the nail.

    The Bad:

    Tread is a bit slick but no slip outs yet

    Overall Review: The front tire still has a good amount of tread left, the rear obviously is fairly worn but still going after about a year and a half. Best tire ive run so far works well in all conditions

  • The Good:

    Withstand punishment
    Full Street tire

    The Bad:

    Tire design is bulky.

    Overall Review: I have no complaints myself. Everybody says they hate the thread of the tire but its perfect to me. The GLh tire is great but god this tire does damage to the street. Never got a flat with these. Could break a bottle with them and my tube was fine.

  • Animal GLH Tire

    Legendary Tire (product review)

    The Good:

    Good thread
    Good Look

    The Bad:

    Don't ride in dirty area's

    Overall Review: I rode this tire for YEARS. I loved it... until I moved to a place with dirty street. New Orleans streets are grimier than most. Glass everywhere. Unfortunately these tires can't handle that. Granted, most can't but these are perfect for cities with roads that people take care of.

  • The Good:

    easy to put on

    The Bad:

    The Grease Pack was trash

    Overall Review: Animal is known for top notch products and the Akimbo cranks are on that list. I can't think of anything bad besides the grease pack. They hold up through the toughest of punishment. I put them through hell and they lasted 3 years before I sold them. It's been 4 years since I sold them and the g...

  • The Good:

    Keeping this short but these have been the best tires I’ve ridden . You can trust these tires . They grip everything and slide when you want them too. I haven’t slipped out on anything I normally expect my tires to slip out on . Including slick wood . The design is super smooth , good for street and park .

    Durability is insane , I’ve have mine for a year now and they’re just showing signs of wear after hundreds of kilometres on them . Sliders too , doesnt wear down the tread

    The Bad:

    Slightly heavy , 2.2 size is more like a 2.2 ( run 2.2 back and 2.4 front and they’re about the same )

    Overall Review: Buy these and you won’t be disappointed
