If you start the day dirt jumping, session the street all afternoon and finish off with a trip to the skatepark, Specialized's Rhythm Lite Control is the tire for you. It features a fast-rolling center section with large and deep knobs on the shoulders for awesome cornering traction. Plus, the dual-compound tread strikes the perfect balance of great handling, excellent grip and light weight.
I use this as a rear tire on my dirtjumper along with a slick in the front. This tire accelerates fast on the street with almost no knob squish, its smooth rolling and gives great grip in the corners both on the street and on hard pack dirt. Not sure about wet traction since I havent been caught in the rain yet or how well the tire wears since I have only had it for two weeks. The rhythm lite is also super nice as far as getting it on the rim. So far couldnt be happier with it great value for the money
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
