- Rocket Rons for the 3 peaks?
No punctures then? and guessing you ran with high pressure like i would with land cruisers?
I have been advised to go with faster/lighter tyres though am a little concerned with regards punctures, been running LC’S with high pressure and am descending really well and quick with no punctures so far!Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
I used one last year on the front, but I could have coped perfectly well with my other semi slick tyre. The 3 Peaks is all stony track or road apart from the first descent off Ingleborough, and that is a grassy one.
You really need tyres that won’t puncture or pinch flat rather than fannying about with the incompetent mountain bikers excuse of wrong tyre choice.
It’s rideable on slicks.Posted 4 years agoscottyroyalMember
Stick with LC’s, plenty grippy enough. The 3 seconds you loose due to them being a bit heavy will way more than you’ll loose if you puncture.
They are super popular at the peaks for a reason, I’ve used tubs, normal cross tyres and LC’s and they are the only ones I’ve not punctured.Posted 4 years agoIanWMember
I know Schwalbes have a good following but in use I have alway found them really fragile. I’ve had a few sets not sure which now from memory, rockets, racing, ron, ralph and on the road luganos and duranos/ durano plus, but had blow outs galore everywhere from thetford to Wales and the road tyres seem to wear really quickly.
Go for Maxxis now High roller/Larsen/the other fast one cant remember its name and Continental gp4000, 4 season on road.
There good.Posted 4 years agowinchMember
I have a 2.4 and if I was into racing and that malarky I wouldn’t hesitate to run it. Yes, you run the risk of puncturing but there ism’t really an alternative to match it in terms of grip and volume for the weight. Great tyre if that’s what you want. A lot like a hans dampf but with a vey thin sidewall and very little puncture protection. Much, much faster though.Posted 4 years ago
