- Recommend me Tubeless tryes
I currently have a pair of Mavic 729 rims which I want to run tubeless with stans milk and strips. Now I have the same set up on another bike (same rims, tubeless set up) but am running dual ply maxxis minion tyres. Now these tyres are heavy, real heavy but are pretty much puncture proof (no flats in 2 years!)
This time I want a lighter tyre, something that can be run at low pressure and not allow the wall to fail prematurely (heavy rider by the way), something that will seal wee and be suitable for all weather XC Trail riding in the UK.
Would Maxxis or Kenda UST LUST tyres be a good choice-more importantly, will these fit on my 729’s, they are a mid weight tyre with reinforced walls but not so heavy as dual ply ?
Any ideas, any suggestions ?Posted 9 years ago
Conti Vert Pro’s UST are the worst tyre I have ever encountered. Seemingly great with low rolling resistance until a wet root, north shore or grass shows its head and then they break with no notice and no recovery. Dangerous. And they pinch puncture. I have used 2.35 LUST High Rollers, Ignitors and Swampthings since I ditched them and all have been very good.Posted 9 years ago
I’ve got regular 2.35 Swampies run ghetto on another bike and they are extremely good. I’ll be as fit as a butcher’s dog come the spring tyre change too!
