650b tyres for winter, where?
I nearly ripped my nobby nic off and set fire to it on the trail today! It’s gonna be the death of me that thing if I don’t get something else soon. Having to push up relatively simple stuff I’ve blasted up a million times and my back end is drifting on the descents too. It’s a total slick in the mud.Posted 4 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Before you buy anything, take another 5 psi out of both front and back and try again. A tyre needs to deform to grip, and to shed mud. If you are running summer pressures at slower winter speeds, the tyre may not be deforming enough.
Conti MK2 black chilli is now available in 650b 2.4.
I’m still getting away with Dampfs but when they start balling up all the time, I’ll switch to the MK2s, as they have more paddle-like centre blocks and larger gaps between blocks which makes them shed more easily.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
You know what’s excellent in mud? About 50 different 26 inch tyres 😉 Already hearing a lot of peeved 650b enduroists looking at the winter season.
Is there a 650b Minion? They can be trouble in really claggy mud but they work better than most up to that point, certainly better than highrollers and mountain kings.Posted 4 years ago
Stuck a high roller II on the back end. Was ploughing through mud like a tank last night, making light work of stuff I was pushing over on the nobby nic. However, on the flip side it feels like I’m towing a caravan and I can barely lift my bike over a fence anymore! Frustration continues…Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

Onza Ibex is available in 650B
It supposedly exists but can’t be bought.
Magic Mary looks like it might cut it but it’s not a mud tyre, it’s designed as an intermediate and has pretty low knobbles (and being a soft-compound schwalbe no doubt will be worn out by the end of the first climb)

No slicks either for that matter.
Supposed to be a Kojak and a Supermoto coming soon.Posted 4 years ago
