    At the risk of angering the hive..

    I’ve been using Bonty Mud X’s for a few years and love them, thing is, I have a 650b coming in a few weeks and Bonty don’t do this tyre in this size.. what are the alternatives for allround fantasticness?

    Can someone please explain all the differnt rubber coumpounds of Shwalbe?
    Trailstar
    Pacestar
    Vertstar

    They then all seem to come in three different types
    Snakeskin
    Supergravity
    Then DH.

    Trailstar – medium, good balance of grip and wear
    Pacestar – hard, plastic, alright on the rear
    Vertstar – soft, supertacky

    They’re all multi-compound, iirc, but the above is roughly equivalent if comparing to something like Maxxis tyres.

    Snakeskin – reinforced
    Supergravity – more reinforced
    Then DH – obvious

    Hi Bedds
    Like you I’m a long term MudX user.I changed to Hutchinson Toro’s to offset some of the sidewall collapse I got on the rear Bonty’s when crashing through rocks.
    So far so good. Faster tyre but not quite the grip.
