I was looking for a pretty nice rear tire. But I've freerided and my style started to go more and more towards trials. I know my Intense EX909 NEVER pinchflated. 6-foot drops to flat concrete, bunny hops with tire landing crooked on the curb ledge, rear wheel stalls...never a pinchflat. I dunno if it's from the Intense tube in conjunction iwth the tire, or just the tire or tube? Question is, I ordered an IRC El Gato, and will just be using regular thornproof tubes(not quite a DH tube). Will I pinchflat everywhere? I avoided the intense, although I swear by them, I didn't want to seriously weigh down my ride. 860 grams vs 1400 grams on the tire alone. Also, how is rear wheel traction compared to the Intense? Anybody?
