I have tried a few different rear tyres and against all odds i thought i had found my holy grail in a snakeskin version of the Nobby Nic.
It seemed roll pretty well, gripped extremely well and for me it fitted tubeless with ease so in all respects it seemed to be a winner.
So with a pat on the back and a smug grin i headed out to the trails.
500 miles later(not in one go), and used in very different types of terrain i was willing to accept that yes. I had the ONE.
Wrong. dear jesus these tyres must have been made from swiss cheese. The centre knobs have been completely trashed. Now i am not heavy on the brakes and i dont do skids so this is pretty poor. At £40 a pop ill not be buying another.
So fitted an unused Eskar i had in the garage from an old bike to continue the hunt. But i really dont want to like it too much as they are discontinued
