- Tyres – first it was Conti vert Pro, what is it now?
Some 8″ wide fatniche tyre that’s perfect for riding on a beach. Or snow. Oh, and for showing how different you are
But I’m not different, I’m the archetypical ‘456 with Revs, BB7s, Thompson post, Thompson stem, Charge Spoon saddle, Hope/Mavic wheels’ riding, late thirties, IT professional (currently ‘between positions’) STW inhabiterPosted 6 years agouplinkMember
Depends really, if you are are the ‘in front of the curve’ type [strike]tractor[/strike] fat tyres are indeed this year’s thing
but………. as you are still on Verts I’m guessing that’s not you?
in which case High Rollers are the very hoops for you
I’d play safe though and stay on Verts 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Oh no, I’m not on Verts, I’m on Panaracer Rampages. I was on Fire XCs before that and liked them but wanted something a bit bigger (but not quite to the size of the current tractor tyre fetish) so went for the Rampages. To be honest, I’ve not been that impressed with themPosted 6 years agoalpinMember
rubber queens, either 2.2 or 2.4 in black chilli are good. very grippy, but not draggy and they don’t wear as fast as Maxxis tacky compounds. my only gripe would be the sidewall is a bit weaker than some…. only a prob if you ride very rocky terrain.
otherwise Maxxis High Roller front with Advantage on the rear.Posted 6 years agobusydogMember
I used to ride Conti’s but continually had problems with them losing grip/washing out. Have been on Kenda Nevagal for the past couple of years and really like them–reliable, sturdy, good climbing and bite well in the turns.Posted 6 years ago
I don’t know how well they might do there in the UK with you probably getting more rain in a month than we see in a year, but here in the dry, desert climate (mostly hardpack, loose/decomposed granite/sand or just plain hard, pointy rocks) they are ace.
