Pretty new to the world of MTB but have been raising my game over the past 6 months, fitness technique etc comming on nicely thanks to lots of encouragement from local club.
Got to the point where I can push quite aggressively but having trouble finding a good summer front tyre so looking for suggestions.
My bike is a Lapierre X Control and I live in the Calder Valley/Kirklees area, so rides range from open Moorland runs to tight twisty steep single track.
I love the bike and yes it's a little twitchy as it's set up for XC, but to be honest I like it that way. Found a great winter/mud set up with a Storm Control up front and Trailraker in the back.
But have lost the front regularly in the current dusty loose conditions when pushing on downhill, on my summer tyres.
Have tried Kenda Nevagal Stick e, Continental Race King (OE with bike) and Maxxis Ignitor.
