@wheelcity I am sure you will agree its all about personal preference. Once I put on the Hoosier, the board seemed to come alive and felt very light and maneuverable. And in my climate (Steamboat Springs CO) I simply MUST have some type of tread and a softer rubber compound in the winter if I am to stay upright thru snow, slush and ice. I am studding the narrow Hoosier next week as the black ice situation is ridiculous from time to time.
I will probably switch back to the VEGA in the Summer but I might also get a wider Hoosier so I can have the superior grip of a treaded tire when I am not on smooth concrete or pavement. That Vega just feels like a real dog now that I have experienced the liveliness of a more rounded tire.
