    First Kenda came out with the Equalibrium tire that was sort of a cross between a knobby and a trials tire, then the Ibex as a soft compound technical tire, followed by the Knarly, and finally this: the Gauntlet.
    I liked the looks of the Gauntlet, so I ordered a set with the intent of installing them on my Beta Xtrainer, but I discovered that they have DOT numbers on them as well, so I may consider using them on my FE 501. Anybody had a chance to try the Gauntlets out yet?

    Last time I looked into it all Kenda fronts were DOT. I used to run Kenda MX fronts on my dualsport
