All round 29er tyre?
I haven’t tried On Ones tyres but there does seem to be a lot of love for them on here. I’ve tried a few different combos on both my 29ers and so far I reckon 2.4/2.25 F/R EXO Ardents were the best all-round pairing, even doing relatively well in winter mud. £33 each though as far as I can see so not the cheapest of options, but still good value imo.Posted 3 years ago

All I’ve got are Rocket Rons, yet to get me into trouble! I do have to dab a bit though
I noticed – shocking!
I’ve found some Geax Saguaro’s TNT for £40 a pair – any views on those? They seem to review well and got a glowing report in the STW mag….Posted 3 years agosnownrockSubscriber

I had Saguaro’s last summer, great ‘summer’ (dry weather’ tyre. I found them to be a liability in the wet and mud though, low profile treads were a bit sketchy.
Now running Specialized Ground Control S-Works 29×2.1 – A fantastic tyre! Got a pair for £45, they’re super light (520g) I had read reviews that they were prone to cutting on rock easily but I have ridden them since November tubeless 25psi without issue, including the Dyfi. I like a fit and forget tyre, i’m not for constantly changing and these are the closest match 29er tyres to my previously sadly missed 26″ panaracer fires that I have found.Posted 3 years agoYakSubscriber
Saguaros are good. Fast and grippy. Particularly good as a rear on a ss as they don’t break away much when you are climbing out of the saddle. I put them on the rear in the winter and front for the summer. Probably good as a pair, but I’ve never run a pair yet.
Not TNT though. The standard ones seem tough enough and seal easily enough.
Ground controls are good too. Get the 2.3 as that only comes up as a 2.2 imo. Ground control 2.3 front, saguaro 2.2 rear is a good combo.Posted 3 years agoBillOddieSubscriber
2.4 X-King has been my go to tyre front and back so far this year.
They do get overwhelmed in proper sticky mud but 90% of the time they are fine.
If you want to hedge your bets go for a Chunky Monkey on the front and an x-king on the back. Works well but the CM is draggy compared to the x-king.Posted 3 years ago
