A long while back I upgraded from a standard Pint to an XR. Really, I loved everything about the Pint except the range. So when I got the XR, I found that I really wished it handled like my old Pint. After installing the FF Nimbus, I found it was exactly what I wanted. Not only was it quieter, but it made my XR handle exactly like my old Pint. For me, it's perfection.
I’m pleased with the tire, however I’m more pleased with the customer service I’ve received from Flightfins. Thank you!
Nimbus tire is the most carvy turning tire. Super fun cut backs like surfing. Would totally recommend for someone looking for a pint tire on a XR!
This thing is crazy. I’ve ridden a whisper, a hoosier6x6 30d, and the brick that is the Vega, and the Nimbus is the most aggressive carvy tire I’ve tried yet. At speed, I really can’t imagine a smoother tire that sticks whatever line you choose perfectly every single time. A little too aggressive for me, but I’m definitely happy to wear it out to get back to a Whisper. No regrets on this one, though. Better than the Vega and Whisper off-road for me, as well, which really surprised me.
This thing lives up to its name! It's very light and nimble, yet very durable. I wouldn't go too high on the pressure since it can get pretty sketch, but otherwise an excellent ride!
