IRD Rubber is HERE!

The classic, ever-loved tread of Panaracer's FIRE XCPro has arrived from IRD in a 650Bx2.1" format!
I mounted up the Fire 650B's this morning and will hit the trails this weekend.
IRD sent me the Red and Black version, but it is also available in all black. They've maintian the aramid, fold bead, and weight came in at 635 grams for a single tire. The 2.1 knobby will be warmly welcomed with a price tag of $59 MSRP.
Merry Sales is the parent company of IRD(Interloc Racing Designs), as well as Soma and Pake Brands. I suppose this tire will nicely match the Soma B-Side, whenever that frame arrives.
The red and black FireB will also aestetically match the Rawland frames.

Awesome to see another option available - and the Fire XC Pro is a pretty tried and true design too.

I'd like a mud update. I live in the PNW and that is our mo for 6 months of the year. Wish they had made the Rampage...

FWIW, Mr Pacenti modeled the Neo-Moto after some of his favorite tires. The Rampage being one of them. The 2.3 is a pretty large volume tire, with some aggressive knobs. Would the 2.35 Kenda Nevegal be more up your alley?

Is the casing the same size as the Neo/Quasi Moto's?
