sorry, larsen tt, small block 8 or other for 819 rim.
I used a Larsen TT tubeless at CyB, it tore on the 1st descent (maybe I was running it too soft at 30psi?).
I settled on a crossmax on the rear as they are fast but a little tougher and something gripper on the front – like a nobby nic or 2.3 DHF or even the 2.4 highroller 2, although they seem to come up huge. Ardent get good feedback too, but I’ve not tried one.
I have a SB8 on the SS bike & it is very fast & grips well on dry/fast clearing dirt (chicksands, thetford etc). I felt the lugs are a a little low profile for staying really connected on wet/muddier trails around Pirton & in the peak.- also they seem to attract blackthorn.
I have a few part worns in the garage if you want something specifically for next weekends trip (but they are not UST)?Posted 4 years agoflip456Member
cheers for the info guys.Posted 4 years ago
tthew, i’m also going to be using an ignitor on the front and mostly ride similar trails to you 🙂
adam, thanks fella will take a look at the crossmark and ardent. I’m not suprised you tore your tire up, at the speeds you ride at….i’m sure my more sedate pace would be a bit more forgiving 😉Pimpmaster JazzMember
Larsens are fun, but like any small block tyre isn’t too hot when it starts to slide (which is quite easy).
Another option is the Conti Race King – probably a little quicker and nice round profile, which makes leaning into corners pretty easy. It’s also a low, flat pattern which means there’s plenty of tread in contact with the ground. Great in rockier areas (rode at a wet CYB with no problems) but worse than useless in mud (unsurprisingly).Posted 4 years agogetonyourbikeMember
Crossmark all the way. It’s a fast tyre that still corners well. It holds a line as good or better than an Ardent but rolls faster. It’s absolutely perfect for the rear, especially when combined with the brand new Maxxis High Roller 2 2.3 TR (tubeless ready)/3C/EXO on the front. The new HR2 is very impressive.Posted 4 years ago
