- Anyone tried the new Mavic mtb tyre?
I’m currently running Hans Dampfs at the moment and to be honest I’m not overly impressed, I’m not sure what all the love for them is about, plus all the knobbles are breaking off! So I’m looking Wat replacements and I quite like the look of the new crossmax tyres by Mavic, is anyone on here using them yet and if so what are your thoughts??

The punctures fudge. I feel the carcass on them is too light and so not ideal for aggressive riding, no wonder Dan Atherton rides them at 45 psi.
The UST versions roll just as fast (despite being heavier) and are properly tough. Run them at 20-30psi (lower front / higher back, lower wet / higher dry).Posted 6 years ago
I just don’t think they’re all that grippy and sometimes a little sketchy, I’m running them tubeless and at reasonably low pressures, around 23psi on the front and 26psi on the back, plus the fact that the knobbles are starting to break off?? I just think that at £50 per end they’re a little lacking.Posted 6 years ago
