Are you running your tyres Tubeless or with tubes?
i rrun Tubeless so as above, Hans dampf front in winter, nobbly nic rear.
Nobbly nic front, racing Ralph when the weather gets better and if we get a summer full Ralph’s.
You can usually pick them up for a good price from bike discount.de
My only criticism would be that the rear tyres do wear quickly.Posted 4 years agosumomattMember
Specialized Purgatorys were good performers in pretty much all conditions.
Maxiis Ignitors awesome in anything except mud and very fast.
Nobby nics pretty good all rounders, but crap on wet rocks.
Continental X Kings again a versatile choice, pick the right derivative for your riding though – Racesport fast but prone to rock slices. Protection better sidewalls a little slower though.
As the bad weather approaches just moved to Hans Dampf trailstar up front with a HD pacestar rear
Oh and welcome to the world of 29ers 🙂Posted 4 years agobigblokeMember
Been running on my 29er Maxxis Ikon for the last year, very surprising how well it coped winter considering its a micro knobbed tyre and summer/dry they have been superb.
Next summer I may look into the Maxxis Aspen as my riding buddy has been using them with no complaints.Posted 4 years agoshortcutSubscriber
Recently switched to Specialized Ground Controls. Cheap enough, light enough, grippy enough, more robust than Schwalbe and Conti (non protection), easy enough to set up tubeless.
Can’t complain, do a good job – they are pretty good really. Also they are black and round which works well for a tyre.Posted 4 years agotanglewoodMember
Mountain king, 2.2, chili, protection front.Posted 4 years ago
Cross king, 2.2, chilli, protection rear.
what a difference to bontrager.
See Continental web site and check specific part number.
The front for cornering on trails, wet or dusty dry.
The rear for driving on hard ground or mud.
Ardent’s sound good, but haven’t tried them.
Hope this helps.
