yes, i’m surprised how grippy they are off-road, considering they’re basically a slick tyre.
a friend of mine just used a larsen on the rear to finish top-50 at the kielder enduro…
DMR moto Diggers are a bit more grippy, a bit heavier, a bit slower on the road.Posted 8 years agorichcMember
On my commuter which I also use off road once or twice a week and I am using Smart Sams they seem to be grippy enough to make it around Ashton Court/Leigh woods in the week as well as doing the 6 or 7 miles to work on the tarmac.
Mind you saying that, I am currently trying a land cruiser on the back, and I can live with that in the mud as well, you just go a bit slower and learn to cope with the odd slip and worked pretty well in the snow as well.

I currently have a SB8 on the back, which is supposedly quite similar to a Larsen. Experiences similar to others (recreational XC type riding) :-
Tarmac – Ok, but probably not as fast as you would expect
Hardpack – Feels fast
Mud – Not as good as a wider spaced tyre, but can cope with the odd patch of mud
I am using it on the back at the moment, with a Nevegal up front, and i’m happy. I wouldn’t use it in very muddy conditions, and I wouldn’t use it up front unless almost all of a ride was dry. I will probably be using it as my front summer tyre though.Posted 8 years agotopangariderMember
Second what others have said – Fast on hardpack, not as fast on the road as you’d think, ok for the odd bit of mud. Mine performed great on Sunday at the Enduro 6.
I’m not sure if the LUST version is any different due to the compounds. There is also the Mimo version – though have no idea what thats like!Posted 8 years ago
