fastest rolling MTB race tyres ?
For racing this year I will be running Continental X-King Supersonic. As already said all the supersonic range are good.
The other tyre I am using for racing this year is the Geax Barromud 1.7″ light and fast but little stetchy over wet rock/wet roots e.t.c. Fine in mud as it does not stick to the tyre and on hard parked or damp surface. Not very good on very loose surfaces. They feel fast around Thetford forest which is where I ride.
RJ Chickens are not getting any more of these but they have 29 left in stock. I think they weight 430g as well.
I quite like them.Posted 5 years ago
Dunno why you are asking on here…you must have tried more tyres than all the testers in MBUK yourself 😆 OP is THE worlds biggest tyre tart, he had 3 different combinations in the last 3 rides I’ve done with him, and 20 tyres in his garage 😯
The Ardent/advantage combo you sold me were great for the Dyfi winter warmer by the way!…went round faster than you did! I’ll probably use the Ardent/Aspen combo for the Dyfi tho….or 2x aspens if its bone dry

[/quote]I’ve got a pair of XR0s I’ve never quite been brave enough to try! They’re heavier than Rocket Rons with a tread pattern to rival a Furious Fred
The XROs aren’t good 🙂 less grip than a Maxxis 330 but do have a slightly tougher carcas.Posted 5 years ago
The XR1s are seriously worth a try – Evans have them for £20 at the moment.njee20Subscriber

What’s wrong with that!
Quick mental tot up:
2 pairs of Racing Ralphs
2 pairs of Rocket Rons
pair of Furious Freds
pair of Dirty Dans
pair of Nobby Nic
pair of 1.5″ Black Shark Muds
pair of Mud Xs
pair of S-Works Sauserwinds
pair of XR0s
I make that 22 tyres, with the exception of the Black Sharks all between 2″ and 2.1″ as well!

Because of the above, I’ll pass 🙂Posted 5 years agohughjenginMember

Wok smuggler 🙂 Harsh
Isnt the Dyfi really about getting as p***d up as possible on the Saturday night, passing out in a tent, being physically threatened if you dont shut your face at 2am.. and just about surviving on the Sunday, rather than actually racing against other people who arent actually racing you ?Posted 5 years ago
