- Sorry!! What 650b tyre…..
I know everyone hates these threads…..but have just got back from a ride and suffered my 4th snake bite in 3 rides! It’s doing my head in so want a stronger tyre.
Currently got OEM Nobby Nics on my five but looking for something stronger and grippy-er. Have had Spesh Purgatorys before and I know I can get them in 650b.
What would people recommend then? Planning a big solo ride this weekend so want something I can rely on!Posted 3 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
Ardent/HRii (in EXO flavour) works for me in the peaks.
I know that some of my groups have found it difficult to source 650b tyres. One of them ended up with the new Mavics after having HRIIs and is very happy. Another ended up with Hans Dampfs and is again very happy.
Nobby nics haven’t got the best reputation for strength or puncture resistance.Posted 3 years agoultimateweevilMember
I’m running Conti Trail Kings front and back and so far have been pretty good. Not as draggy as my HR2s were when I used to run them on my 26er. Also run them 25-30psi with tubes and have been fine for the 3 months I’ve run them and that’s been on mixed terrain from wet sloppy stuff to slatey loose stuffPosted 3 years agoGolfChickMember
IMO if it’s snake bites you want to avoid that your experiencing rather than any other issues you should be looking at tyres that have specific side wall protection. All very well getting a standard hans dampf etc but you should get the snakeskin etc sidewall. For example our magic Mary’s are supergravity trail star and we can run them as low as 25 psi and they still feel rockhard.Posted 3 years ago
