- Tyres – Found some good ones.

I got some 2.somethings High Roller folding things on my Marin – not the 2.35s and I found them terrible – great in a straight line, awful for anything else unless it was bone dry…so they got replaced with some Conti Vert Pros – which I find work very well in all conditions (apart from the thick fresh snow that we had a wee while back – but I suspect all tyres would have done the same)…
I do fancy trying the wider High Rollers but they cost a bit and there is still life in the verts…so I'll be leaving them well alone until I wear the Verts out.
A great tyre for my riding (which is now involving more pedalling than walking!)…
If those High Roller Foldings in your garage are going to go for sale, let me know as I could be tempted…Posted 9 years agoCaptainBudgetMember
Yeah, verticals aren't great in thick mud as they just clog up.
However on virtually all other surfaces they grip pretty well. They certainly aren't puncture prone; I've only ever had a few snakebites mostly from DH stuff, but that's because single ply tyres for DH should be avoided like the plague (I didn't have any dual ply at the time though).
They are a very underestimated tyre. Took them to the Dyfi forest down all the Motocross stuff and they stuck pretty well with no problems. They gripped the loose shale on the Dyfi enduro no problem and filled me with confidence.

The manufacturer who makes a perfect all-condition tyre that rolls well over all surfaces will drive everyone else out of business, and don't exist yet. The Verticals are a great tyre that work pretty well on everything except deep mud (where you probably need a proper mud spike anyway)
