So, first off, will it cut the mustard?
At the moment, the bike I'm taking to the Alps this summer (not pure DH. More lift assisted trail/xc with the occasional DH course if we're passing) has IRC Kujo and El gato tyres. Great tyres but too heavy, too worn, no longer availiable and they don't convert to tubeless very well.
My other bike is running Maxxis Advantage tubeless and I'm liking that a lot but obviously, I want something a bit bigger for the Alps but not silly heavy (maybe 800 ~ 900 grms).
I've been looking at the Conti Vertical Pro 2.3 and the Maxxis Ignigtor FR 2.35. I've heard it suggested that the Ignigtor measures up about the same as the 2.1 ADvantage I'm running now. Tread looks very similar between the two, any opinions?
The other than caught my eye was the Conti Rubber Queen but it's a big chunk of money more.
