I think they were at the 'budget' end of the Onza range. I seem to recall them weighing a ton, but i've no idea how they rode.

As Kev said, they were nice in dry and loose terrain. In the winter, you could take take 2 tons of mud with you back home.

I remember some of the fastest downhillers using the rear tyre on their bikes, even on the front wheel.

They could also be bolas grandes, same thread design as aggro and honch but wider and beefier. they were intended for dh use.
