on one smorgasbord tyres
I wasn’t so impressed with them as a rear, this was the enduro version, i found it lacking in grip when starting to push a bit harder, sometimes letting go a bit.
I am now running a chunky front and rear and the rear is run in reverse, seems to give oodles of grip, bit sluggish but then the bike they’re fitted too isn’t really about uphill stuff.
They definitely roll quicker than chunkys and for what they’d cost over others when effectively they’re the same they get a thumbs upPosted 4 years agochopchopMember
I had a smorgasbord blow off the rim on its second outing recently (tubeless on flow). I appreciate that it’s. It marketed as a tubeless compatible tyre but I’ve used other non TR tyres successfully. I was impressed by the grip and feel of it, although it was a little draggy.Posted 4 years agobaldmanMember
I’ve been really impressed with mine. Using the dual compound version on the back paired with a dual compound Chunky Monkey on the front. Actually bought a second set for my other bike.
I run mine tubeless and have not had any problems yet (flow and flow ex rims) but the ones on the flow ex were a lot harder to seat compared to the flow rims – they were a tighter fit on the flows which I think helped, slightly baggy on the flow ex. They need a good amount of Stan’s fluid and a few rides to get them to seal properly too.
Edit – final thought, they are quite big compared to the 2.1 maxxis ignitor I had on before so depending on clearance in your frame may be a tight fit.Posted 4 years agoNickSubscriber
I have them set up tubeless on my 456, sticky one on the front, harder one on the back.
Skate a bit on mud, don’t have much bite when lent over, but great on rocks and roots, looking for something with a bit more bite for when it gets muddy but they have been fine and a bit of a bargain.Posted 4 years ago
