I have had a set for over a year now, confidence inspiring in the wet, even better when roads are dry. I only have 2000km on them so far but I reckon they are great tyres.

I have the newer A41s on my bike. Have almost 7000 miles on them and they are showing modest wear.

Great traction on dry and wet surfaces, and unpaved roads as well.

Are you talking the AX41?
If so, I just this weekend put a set on my K2. Very impressed with them. I do only have a 150 miles on them in dry asphalt conditions, but so far I like them.

No. A41. 90/10 road/dirt. I pretty much use my bike as a commuter.

Mileage will depend on your style of riding. If you are joe average commuter with some spirited corners here and there you should get about 15k km to the wear bars on a rear and over 20k km on the front. If you spend a lot of time charging into corners heavy on the brakes and then high rpm shifts down the straights you will get about half that mileage. Loaded for camping and flying down hot straight highways eats up the rear quicker. I just switched to A 41s from Trailwings and am liking them a lot.

I'm the charging into corner guy, high rpm shifts and heavy on the brakes. On 2017 XT I got 7K on the rear (probably could have gotten another 1-2K, but was heading out on a long trip into the hinterlands) and 13K on the front. Replaced with same tires, because love the devil you know and the tires are great for curvy Pennsylvania and West Virginia roads. I don't ride to maximize my tire life. I ride for thrill of the roads.
