great sand traction

I've rolled the 2.2 TNT version of this tire for a week now on my rear wheel out here in central Arizona....sharp rocks, sandy washes, sand over hard switchbacks. The tread is pretty dense/hard, so performance on rock (edging, conformance, etc) is not the best, but this tire excels in the loose and dry conditions. I'm not worried about mud since it is such a rarity for me in the desert. I goofed and bought the TNT when I had intended to buy the foldable version to save a bit of weight, but I won't be returning the TNT...just ordering another foldable. Given the dense tread, I can see this tire lasting a lot longer than some of the other tires I've had on the rear.
