- Im sorry its come to this but….. What tyre?
I think everyone should be allowed 1 ‘what tyre’ thread. This is my first one and im asking as a last resort as ive done as much reading as i can.
I currently use Mountain King 2 protection version in 2.4, i think its just a little to easy to flat.
Does anyone have any suggestions to a more stronger tyre which can cope with slate/stones? Its for my AM bike, so i dont want the weight of a full on dh tyre, is there something inbetween?
Thanks in advance.Posted 4 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
Tubeless with sealant! I’ve been running Rubber Queen 2.2 UST BC for the past year and they’re not a lot bigger and tougher than the MK 2.4 Protection but they’re pretty bombproof as tubeless tyres go. I had more problems with an X-King 2.4 Protection (same carcass as yours?) but I think that was due to the low centre knobs allowing sharp flints to cut the carcass. I can’t see regular stones bothering it.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Do you want something like a MK, but less punturey? Or would you be happy with a harder use/draggier tyre? Most times, with added durability comes added gnar-core-ness.
I can completely recommend the Specialized Butcher Control if you don’t mind the extra drag (and would appreciate the extra grip). Best trailbike tyre there is, IMO, straight evolution of the Minion. But it’s not really a MK substitute.Posted 4 years ago
