Continental don't seem convinced by plus…
… He’s talking slight chub, 2.6″ on 30mm rim.Posted 6 months agoTom_W1987Member
I love how everything I predicted, everyones ditching true 650b plus tyres and going with tyres you can fit in a standard **** frames oh and Whyte are going slacker and reducing the reaches on their bikes to sensible values, coils forks are returning to the scene and 29ers didn’t dominate the WC.
Suck my balls journos!

I don’t think 2.6 can really be classed as ‘plus’ can they bearback?.
I wouldn’t class them as plus. Even that 0.4″ feels totally different. My bike came with 3.0″ plus tyres and I’m now on 2.6″. The plus tyres were much rounder and kind of “floatier” (can’t think of word to describe that). The 2.6s just feel a big normal tyre, which I prefer.Posted 6 months agoBearBackMember
I don’t disagree that 2.6 is right on the border of ‘plus’.Posted 6 months ago
Maxxis dont call their tyres + until 2.8, Schwalbe do have 2.6 as 27.5+, Scott aren’t calling their 2.8″ tyre’d sparks plus bikes for 2018.
Anyway, key point is that Contis marketing material calls their 2.6 tyres “B+”NorthwindSubscriber

or are we not calling 2.6 tyres plus sized?
It’s just a tyre, my highroller 2.7 wasn’t a plus tyre when i got it in about 2010…
2.6 actually seems like a pretty decent idea- extra choice without any bullshit. On my wide rims my 2.5 minions measure 2.6, they’re great. But they’re just tyres.Posted 6 months ago
