Recommend me the best 2.35 tyres for my hardcore hardtail :)
2.4 mountain kings seemed thinner than 2.35 hi-rollers and felt really sketchy cornering. Dual ply hi rollers are good for avoiding pinch flats. Unless you are really concerned about traction I would go for 60a as the ST ones wear out very quickly (on peak district gritstone anyway) and give terrible rolling resistance, but they are very very sticky.
ST front and 60a rear sounds like a good idea. I would go with hi rollers though, they are ace.Posted 8 years agolank45Member
I love high rollers, find them a really nice rolling tyre that corners well. The super tacky does slow you down and stones stick to them and ping up at your frame! Dual ply are heavier but its worth it for the extra protection the thicker sidewalls give alongside being able to run lower pressures.Posted 8 years ago
To be honest they don’t come up that huge in the width department, I’ve had specialized 2.3 which is bigger and intense 2.35 which seems smaller, and what you lose in a little rolling resistance will only help on the downs and on your legs whichever tyre you go for.pimpmyrideMember
Right then the Kenda blue grooves went back today and I now have a new healthy budget of £60 for some new rubber rollers 🙂
I’m looking at the Maxxis high rollers 2.35 but don’t know wether to get 2.35 dual ply super tacky or 2.35 single ply super tacky, or 60a hard compound, or just to hell with it a get a pair of Nevegals aaaaaaagh! its doing my head in!!
I will be riding 4-6 hours in the saddle mostly in places like sherwood pines, burnt stump, samson woods and welsh trail centres 2-3 times a year so need to be able to roll fairly well and not kill me on the climbs and be good down fast rocky technical descents roots etc.
Are the double ply high rollers mega heavy and for DH bikes only?
Sorry for all the questions but its a big decision and I want to get it right 1st time.
Also how do the 2.35 high rollers and nevegals come up in size terms/fat chunkyness? I have syncros DP25 rims so can’t go mega big would these be ok?
Help please 🙁Posted 8 years agowillMember
What i would do is as your ride around the pines and surrounding woods, then wales 2/3 times a year is… get some 2.1s or something similar for the woods, then when in wales, get a cheap pair of steel high rollers for Wales.
Some of these would be good, then for the hardcore duties the high rollers.
Having ridden with 2.35″ around the pines and blidworth i’ll be the first to say there not “That” quick (Maxxis Ignitors)Posted 8 years ago
