Non expensive summer tyre
Been riding all winter on On One Smorgasbord tyres which are great tyres for Calderdale natural trail riding when it’s a bit damp.
Fancy something faster for the summer now things are drying up on the trails.
What do you recommend that won’t break the bank? 26″ if that makes a difference.Posted 3 years agoclubbySubscriber
These came on my last new bike and I thought I’d bin them pretty quickly but they are a great summer tyre and just put them back on.
Cheaper rubber compound fine in the dry and wearing well. Don’t know why anyone would pay more for Racing Ralphs.Posted 3 years agobigblokeMember
Michelin Wild Race’R are what you need, absolutely superb on the dryer trails, go up tubeless soooo easy too if that matters to you. I have them in 29er flavour also use in the wetter months the Michelin Wild Grip’R which are equally great. Very underated tyres and being Michelin they are unfashionable so end up very cheap!!!!!Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Specialized Captain Control 2.2 is ace, and pretty cheap. Also really like Kenda’s Slant 6 which can be well priced, though it wears pretty fast and is a little bit drifty, no real side knobs, wouldn’t have it on the front (works better than it should in mud, the tread is too low and open for it to clog)Posted 3 years agomboySubscriber
Just stuck a Geax Saguaro 2.2″ on the back of my full sus after hearing good things about them…
Wow! Seriously impressed. Rolls fast as you’d expect to look at it, but there’s serious amounts of grip on offer too. Really good tyre for sure.
Also liked the Specialized Ground Control I was running recently, again very quick, and assured grip. And another old favourite on the back for summer months is the Maxxis Crossmark, useless in mud but brilliant everywhere else.Posted 3 years ago
