Yes....I have the Super Moto X on both my Vado 4.0 and Trek Allant 8s.....love those tires. They ride fast, are sturdy at speed, and coast very very well....you will not be sorry if you buy a set.

Yes, Yes! These tire roll. They really shine on broken pavement. I did get one flat though. It was from a razor sharp piece of stainless steel, sharpened to a point, three inches long and triangular in cross section with sharpened edges.

Sounds like a weapon.

My housemate once stepped on one of these found on a jogging path. It was definitely intended to wound. I guess they were used to slow down invading forces that were on foot.

I have been using an extra heavy duty tire for some applications, Cargo bikes, a six-month tour of Asia, a heavy bike with a 300 pound ridder and a kilowatt mid. The are new and called Pick Ups. They can carry 350 pounds each and are highly puncture resistant, multi-surface and e50 rated.
This just happened:
A lady noticed that some derailleur screws were not locked down all the way, so took proactive remedial action.

With 27.5" wheels you might try Schwalbe Johnny Watts as well. Totally quiet on the pavement, great grip off-road.
