Best Desert Setup with Tubliss I have found.
I have been running the ED78 with Tubliss on my XR650R and on my CRF450X since Dunlop discontinued the 695 AT. I ride and race all over Nevada, California, and Southern Utah. This terrain is very hard on tires. The durability of this tire is superior to every other tire I have tried. This is the only tire I have used that requires front tire change with every rear tire change. By the time rear is worn out, the front tire is also done. Sidewall is a little stiff if using a HD tube however with Tubliss setup and 8-9 lbs air in rear, traction and handling is great, and flats are almost unheard of.
I highly recommend this setup for Desert use.

Gritty ED78 Bridgestone
This tire is the best long desert tire you can buy. I have raced this tire for three years in Baja and slammed rocks for days and have never been stranded because of this tire.. It has reinforced side walls and was built for the roughest terrain you can put it through. It was referred to me by the owner of O'neal USA the old man himself. If you want to race baja or long desert races where you can be hundreds of miles from man kind, you need to get a gritty ED78 made by Bridgestone. i havent raced since 2013 but Im still pretty sure there is not tire like it on the market.

This tire lasts but has no traction
Tire is holding up very well after several rides. Thats the only reason it got 3 stars. I ride in all terrain types(sand, mud, rocks, more rocks, gravel roads, paved roads) and this tire sucks everywhere. Even though it is run with a tubliss system between 0-3 psi depending on terrain it is too hard and does not hook up well. If you think a 606 is a good tire buy this tire, you will love it. Otherwise steer clear.

amazing rear tire
This tire has been on my KTM520 exc for 3 seasons now and finally needs replacement. I ride tight single track and very rocky trails, i have put on over 1200kms on this tire and would recommend it to anyone who wants a very durable rear tire.

Excellent Baja and BITD tire
The best thing about the ED-78 is the excellent ware factor, and it's almost bulletproof. The traction isn't the greatest in hard pack conditions but that's offset by the it's toughness and tread life. We've run this combination in 9 SCORE BAJA events and 3+ years of Best in the Desert and never had a failure!!!

Only tire
This is the only tire I have found to last a good amount of time on my 500. It beats the Dunlop and maxis two to one. Buy one and you won't go back.

Great for use with Tubliss
I run this tire with tubliss at about 3 psi and it gets great traction and wears like iron. The traction is superior to the Dunlop 739AT that I used to run until they discontinued it and wear is about the same. These are desert style tires, but when run as super low pressures get excellent traction in virtually every terrain.

Best desert hard terrain tire I've tried yet
This tire will actually last. The terrain out here is brutal on tires and it seams to take beating after beating. Knobs don't blow off either. Stiff carcass though. Run lower pressure than you're used to. I run around 10-12 psi and the tire grabs everything. Great wear characteristics. Solid tire. Plus it's now half off. Pair with ultra HD tube and forget about flats even with the lower pressures.
