On One Smorgasboard Enduro why not ?
Been riding with them and a chunky monkey, they are as grippy as the high roller st/ minion dhf st combo I hadon before, but the rolling resistance, and wear, is less, . Been running with tubes, but not had any punctures as yet. Absolutely no complaints as yet, even considering getting a couple of pairs while the price is so low.Posted 4 years agoHerman ShakeMember
Chunk/smorg here too, on 719s. I wouldn’t fancy a smorg on the front, quite a round tyre. Folding went up tubeless easy as and the ‘eckso’ gives me peace of mind in’t Peak.
Great value, a little draggy but grippy when it counts. Weight is a little tubby but fine when compared to other reinforced tyres of a generous size.
Would be nice if they a more defined shoulder, but I guess they’re not in that family of treads. Cheap n cheerful.Posted 4 years agooldfartSubscriber
Need some new tyres for Spicy , was going to stick with High Rollers 26 x2.35 60a folders in single ply . Best price I can find is 28 sniffs from Stif . Then I spotted these same compound also folders but £12.49 each !!!! So what’s the catch ? Heavy , draggy , non grippy ? Anyone tried them ? Spill the beans friends ! They will be used in Moab in September so I thought at that price….. At home it’s a couple of times a month Quantocks Exmoor etc etcPosted 4 years agomboySubscriber
Pretty sure there is a thread on here where they are universally slated.
Myself and a few others shared experiences of their less than favourable (subjectively of course) performance in soft, more conventional UK conditions.
I did find that on hardpack and rock they offered plenty of grip though. For a trip to Moab they’d be superb for the money. There are lots of better tyres (IMO) better suited to a typical UK winter (or even last summer!) though…Posted 4 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
I’m happy with mine, running the standard compound folding ones tubeless on Stans rims on my Ti456. Used them on a variety of terrain, from the 40min road ride up to the trailhead and then rocks, roots, loam, hardpack, gravel and other stuff off road. More than happy – even if they’d cost more. I used Maxxis HR 2.1 for a number of years and I wouldn’t go back.Posted 4 years agovincienupSubscriber
I’ve got a pair of the dual compound Enduros on my Inbred that have done lots of miles with no major visible wear since January.Posted 4 years ago
That bike tends to get commute duties and transpennine trail type stuff, no serious stuff but a lot of varied surfaces. They’ve had mud, ice, snow, rain on pavement, grass, rock and baked earth and no real unexpected behaviour.
Tubed, around 40psi and only puncture a pinch due to my bad on first fitting.
I do find them draggy compared to a CX but not compared to other 26ers.
‘Other 26ers’ = 2.25 Cinders and a 2.35 Hans Dampf Evo Trail/Pace combo on Spicy and Chameleon for reference. The Dampfs are awesome and my personal favourite but a lot more money even from The Germans.
I’d say the Smorgasbords are a bargain with the caveat that I haven’t really hammered them on singletrack or descent, but that’s more the bike they’re on.
Tyres are personal.
At that price, why not get a pair to try and stick them on the hack if you hate them?
