- 2.35 or 2.6 Magic Mary For Front?
I can’t decide if I should go for a 2.6 or not. I used to have a 2.5 high roller for dh stuff and loved the feel but I want something that would be just as good trail/bike park stuff as well. It would be on a swoop 170 with yari fork 27.5.Posted 8 months ago
Anyone with experience of both?
A 2.35 Magic Mary is bigger than an old 2.5 High Roller and a similar size to a modern Maxxis WT 2.5 – it’s a great tyre and a lot of tyre. I think you’d need a very wide rim to get enough support on the 2.6 version and reviews I’ve read suggest it isn’t as versatile as the smaller one.Posted 8 months ago
Yeah I just started using a 2.6 and it’s awesome. Good on Lakes rocks and loamy/sloppy natural trails.

Is the 2.6 a bit tight in the fork clearance? Looks pretty big in there!Posted 8 months ago
Im running a 2.6 MM on 30mm internal width rims and it is an awesome tyre – highly recommended…Posted 8 months ago
No it’s not nearly as tight as it looks in that pic.
Fork is a boost lyrik.Posted 8 months ago
In my view the 2.6 MM is a fantastic tyre, in fact I would go as far as to say the best front tyre for U.K. riding! The 2.35 was good but the 2.6, is better stillPosted 8 months ago
What are you guys running in the rear?
Been looking at a wider front and considering the MM 2.6 for my new 29er, but thinking I might keep the 2.3 Butcher on the back…

2.3 slaughter grid on the rear, I like it, others don’t. Fairly robust though, and has lasted way longer then the 2 EXO minions predecessors.Posted 8 months ago
I’m currently running the 2.35 Mary in Soft compound, when its get more gunky that 2.6 looks like a good option, spacing looks fairly wide to clear mud?
Am I right in saying they dont do an ultra soft 29 Magic Mary? only 27.5 in super gravity casing or DH?Posted 8 months ago
2.35 Magic Mary is bigger than a 2.5 HRII Just make sure you put it the wrong way round, unless you’re Flo, Nico or DaïPosted 8 months ago
Also interested in this. Has anyone got any actual real life width measurements of the magic mary 2.6 on a 30mm rim?Posted 8 months ago
