On one have some Schwalbe cx pro tyres for £9.99.Posted 6 years ago
Skinny 26” cyclo cross tyres. I run these in our local gloop and they are ace. They won’t get you up a muddy climb any better but they slice through mud sections where you would normally be walking a treat. There’s none of that skidding about when you hit a mud patch either.
Wouldn’t go anywhere near rocks with them though.allmountain76Member
Dont get the TLR 2.25 Evo versions. I cant speak for other versions but the afore mentioned are utter guff. £40 odd quid a piece and in two rides i had 3 splits in the front sidewalls and 2 in the rear after ae and Glentress. The carcass was also showing signs of nicks and marks between the treads. I binned them and went back to LUST Maxxis and have not had an issue since. Oh and depending on how and where you ride the grip is average at best. I was running 2.25’s and im now on 2.35 Minion Single ply front and Ignitor 2.35 LUST rear (carcass very close in width) and the grip in all circumstances including winter mud and gloop is measurably higher. I ride in the lakes and trail centres and i would say wet rock was ok, loose shale was awful, mud was average, compacted trails reasonable.Posted 6 years agohonourablegeorgeMember
Snakeskin sidewalls are rock solid.
Don’t understand people buying the lightest possible versions and complaining that they’re flimsy. If you want light tyres, put up with flimsy sidewalls. If you want light tyres that don’t split, get snakeskin. If you want heavy tyres that don’t split, get maxxis. Simple.Posted 6 years agoallmountain76Member
The weight and sidewall variety is irrelevant. Schwalbe tout the nobby nice as their all mountain tyre. It’s not. It’s for lightweights and racers or people who ride on tow paths. Period. I’ll gladly push another 100g per tyre for no punctures and much greater grip.Posted 6 years agoJohnClimberSubscriber
If you want to go tubless don’t bother, this morning with only 25psi in the 29er Nobby Nick I bought under a month ago and ony used for several rides since fitting one on the front (taking me well over an hour to fit) this morning I spotted the tyre had blown off the rim.
Tonight I wasted serveal attempts to get it to stay on the rim without sucess.
I’ll be making a phone call tomorrow to send the faulty one and the one I’ve not used back for an alternative replacement.
