- Do you need mud tyres on a 29er?
Switched from 26 in the summer, couple of people I know did likewise last year and said they didn’t need to use mud tyres through the winter. Have 2.25 Rons and not much mud clearance on the back so I will likely get something narrower at the back anyway but what is everyone finding, do you find you need actual mud tyres? SE England, plenty of clay, used 26″ Mud-X over the last couple of years and rated them highly.Posted 7 years agoJohnClimberSubscriber
If it’s wet deep mud than you will definatly need mud tyres. Bontrager Mud-X’s are my choice when the going get’s bad, but that’s for up here in the North West.Posted 7 years ago
I’d guess for clay Mud-X’s would be perfect for digging in and not clogging up the gaps in between the lugsandylMember
I have Beavers on mine – the knobs are actually a lot shorter than I expected for a mud tyre but they work very well. In fact they work very well on pretty much anything – dusty trails, muddy trails, wet rocks etc. I quite like riding up the streams that appear when it’s raining.
Wish they did a 2.4 version as I’d use that in the summer for extra volume (rigid fork).Posted 7 years ago
