- UST, fast and grippy? (rubber query)
2.1″s.Posted 8 years ago
I’m running 2.1 and 2.25 Advantages on tubed wheels at the moment and can’t decide whether they roll faster than they look like they should (if you know what I mean). Also they’re non LUST and I flatted the rear (2.1) first tubeless ride I tried. Admittedly this was the granite gnarl of McMoab.
May go for a LUST 2.1″ rear and use the 2.25 front.
Uplink – sort of but it can roll fast when rolling in a straight line but be grippy when cornering on their outside edge.
You can also get multi-compound rubber with harder, faster rolling rubber on the centre with softer, grippier rubber on the edges for cornering.Posted 8 years agodoboMember
maxxis monorails are possibly the fastest gripiest tyres i’ve used, not quiet as fast as racing ralph but gripier, good in bends and a nice volume for 2.1 at not a bad weight.
i’m not using the ust version but do run them tubeless anyway and the walls dont leak.
nobby nics and ralph come ust and also check out some bonty tyresPosted 8 years ago
