    Mmmm, Shorty 2 with a DH casing, pretty much the best soft condition tire for going down. Add a tire liner, drop your pressures by about 5psi and experience riding on a rail.

    Think the Mk1’s i fitted last year on the winter wheels still have a winter left in them, the negatives are always rolling resistance and wear, if it’s not soft then they wear horrifically in maxx grip, Mk2 sounds good as well, not a huge amount of change, lets hope they’re not over 100 quid when i need to buy one next!

    I’m not sad it’s got drier and I’ve gone back to summer rubber
