I usually run 2.35 High Roller LUSTs, tubeless. I'm petty happy with the LUST casing and lack of punctures, but am dinging and flatspotting rims like there's no tomorrow. It's bigger tyre time.
Now have Hans Dampfs, 2.35, Snakeskin. Three rides, two gashes through the tread area - one big enough that I have to bin the tyre.
So, three questions:
1) Are Schwalbe Snakeskin tyres really this fragile, or have I just been unlucky?
2) Anyone used the Super Gravity version - how tough are they?
3) How to Maxxis EXO compare to LUST tyres. The LUSTs have been great, but don't come in big sizes so to get more volume I need to go to an EXO.
That's it basically. Nothing to do with the tread etc on the tyres - I'm happy with my old Maxxis and with the Schwalbes. I could go to a 2-ply but don't want the weight, haven't the cash to be buying tyres just to test.
