Are these on crc mate? are they the same ardent and high rollers even tho it says 'kev' or am I being stupid?
New tyres £20- £40?
Yea..I don't think We love Mountains are big on descriptions.
Very vague, couldn't even see whether they were folding or not.
Rhysyd...if you're not really knowledgeable on what tyres to go for or not I'd go for the On-One Chunkey Monkey 2.4 front, Smorgasbord 2.3 rear. I had these set up tubeless ( ghetto) and was really impressed and wouldn't hesitate to buy again. Good grip especially where you need it wet rock d roots. They are really draggy on grass n sand though. They are £20 each.
Or take advantage of the Specialized deal. Swap your old ones in. Spesh make good tyres ( read the Bikeradar reviews)...these will also cost you £40 the pair.
The ones I linked are folding (Kevlar) bead, the lower priced ones on CRC are wire bead.
A Chunky Monkey is probably way more grippy and thus draggy than you need.
Does anyone run the on-one tyres tubless? Or is that a daft idea?
They work great tubeless, though I use a compressor to inflate so can't vouch for how they go with with a track pump.
Rhys - The On One tyres might be a bit draggy for you coming from Speed Kings tbh and might be overkill for Llandegla.
Shameless plug for something a bit thinner...
