Sorry another tyre thread! I've been swapping between a Hans Dampf 2.35 and a Racing Ralph 2.25 snakeskin on the rear wheel depending on where I'm riding but am getting sick of switching back and forth so looking for a compromise.
I like the fast rolling tread pattern of the RR but the tyre feels weak and I have damaged the sidewalls easily in the past. I don't feel confident taking it over loose rocks e.g down Snowdon. On the other hand the HD feels amazing and confidence inspiring with but big nobbly treads make it drag like hell.
So I want a tubless ready tyre with fast tread pattern like the RR but tougher (and probably therefore heavier) like the HD.. any ideas?
