Conti Rubber Queens, the 2.4 are huge but sticky as. Similar profile to the High roller.
Reccomend me the best tyres for a bit of everything.
Tyres are funny and personal eh?
They sure are.
I tend to get on with rounder profile tyres with proggressive cornering, where more aggressive riders seem to like Highrollers and their ilk for hard cornering.
Personally I don't like 2.35 Highrollers (too draggy and slow) or Fire XC Pros (poor in even the slightest mud).
Bonty ACX 2.2 have been my faves for a good few years. Great in all conditions, the only weakness is steering in thick mud, but never really felt the need for proper mud-tyres.
Trying 2.1 ADvantages now for a change.
Have you seen the new Bonty Jones 2.1 XDX tyres?
I used to swear by Nobby Nics, but the side walls are way-too thin and wear out in no time at all. Plus they can be £££.

Tubeless ready version as well - think I'll give them a shot, cheers
There's a nice thread on mtbwales about Advantage front and Crossmark rear.
I have them for the winter riding.
Now it's dry I have the lighter lower profiled XDX & I'm going to try RRalfs.
At present very skinny 1.8 XR which are very quick around these parts (Watford) where we have no built-up berms or technical sections to really speak of. On them, I've ridden the red & black routes at Glentress (not recommended) and Dalby plus Cannock's Red routes (just fine).
If you're prepared to ride on skinny tires, it can be a revelation just how quick you can get a shift-on!
2.35 high rollers , they are good. folding front normal rear
I can wholeheartedly recommend Nobby Nics, I run them 2.4 with snakeskin sidewalls and they are really good all around, being a big tyre though they do drag a little. However i do like a big tyre so have just fitted a 2.4 ralph on the back and 2.4 ron on the front, no snakeskin and no tubes either! (stans kit) which will hopefully work out as my lightweight summer solution. The weight saving with stans is a touch under 400g I just hope they are tough enough as these lightweight schwalbes are very thin at the sidesPosted 4 years ago #
