Positive: Not one flat and ummm they are round.

Negative: Washed out all the time. Always lose tractions when climbing. Add in some loose gravel and climbing is a nightmare. Washed the front end three times on fire roads.

Comments: I won't be using these tires again.

The NBX is not UST certified. It's the heaviest tubeless tire and can run extremely low pressures before blurping air. This is a tire that works okay as long as you stick to harder dirt. The dual-compound tread easily loses composure when you enter into loose, sketchy turns at speed.
