Recommend me a rear tubeless tyre
Need some advice guys,
Running 2.35 tubeless Kenda Nevagals at the moment front and rear, awesome tyres but a bit heavy and draggy on the rear.
Looking to spec a High Roller tubeless 2.35 on the front but not sure what to run on the rear.

It depends how you ride but a lot of people here are using Advantage 2.25 as tubeless. I bought the folding tyres and couldn't get them to work but the wire beads are meant to work perfectly.
For comparison I'm running 2.35 Singleply Minions as tubeless up front and am getting on well with them.Posted 7 years agogeetee1972Member
Really does depend on how you ride but if you're easy on the bike especially over the big rocks, then the SPecialized Purgatory 2Bliss are pretty good. They have a dual 70/60 compound so they roll really quickly but hook up well on the turns. In the dry they are great but over roots in the wet they are quite squirelly.Posted 7 years ago
Also the Maxxis Ignitors are light and roll pretty well' again they need some finesse to keep them in one piece.D0NKSubscriber
nev 2.35 UST? Not seen them for sale here, where'd you get them? I tried nev 2.1 ust, bit short lived, tread was getting very worn (from drive and braking) then I ripped it <250miles.
replaced with Halo choir master, chunky, bit heavy, looking good so far 1 ride in.
Also running a 2.5 minion ust dual ply on my heckler, whole lotta tyre but immense grip and doubt I'll rip/pinch it.
Ssimon, what are the 2.0 larsen like sizewise? the minion 2.3s are pretty slim, 2.0 is putting me off the larsens – only do 2.3 in non ust.Posted 7 years agonickeggMember
Minion 2.35 was pretty good set up tubeless.
Using Ignitor 2.35 LUST/Crossmark 2.25 LUST on my full-sus and Rubber Queen 2.2 UST on my hardtail. Only done a couple of rides with the Rubber Queens but i'm impressed! They roll bloody quickly for something that looks so chunky! I've found you can really lean them over too, i've found myself really ragging the hardtail since i put them on.
Ignitor/Crossmark combo is also superb generally but Crossmark was abit sketchy in the mud but i don't really intend to use it for the more local (and muddy) trails, more for rocky/dry times.Posted 7 years ago
