I loved the Whisper 6” but the Nimbus came out just before it was time to replace my old Whisper. I decided to give the Nimbus a shot, it’s my new favorite for sure!
I’d say the Nimbus is to the Whisper like what the Whisper is to the Stock Vega. Super carvy, yet incredibly stable on center for high speeds. Turning is is very linear, the more you lean the more it turns, it doesn’t have that sketchy “edge” feel like the stock Vega where it goes from turning slightly to wanting to fall on its side. I just recently picked up a second XR and already threw a nimbus on it too!
If you like to carve hard and lean deep this thing is great. I even use it to eat up dirt and it takes it like a champ. Downside I got a little less then 1000 miles out of my first one but it rides so nice my second one is on the way
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!
