what cheap (but good) mud tyres?
I bought some Geax Datura Tyres from On One back in the summer then went back and bought another pair but tubeless, at £26 for a pair they are amazing value for money. They roll well, have lots of grip in mud and soft conditions, but did notice that they are a little squirmy on hard dare I say dusty trails!Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’ve used specialized storm, good as long as the ground is soft, I once made the mistake of leaving them on and riding on a dry day, fekin awfull!
Spesh purgatory’s are good intermediates IMO, they work OK in the mud, but don’t try and kill you if you take them to a trail center.Posted 5 years agodavidxbrownMember
@timc the none UST version are speced as follows the UST are a little heavier.
Dimensions : 26 x 2.20
Weight : 810g
A garage hold it in my hand whats it weigh test against a Trailraker concluded that the Geax was heavier but you can buy two for less than one Trailraker ! so it ticks the cheap box!Posted 5 years agokiwifizSubscriber
@Kryton57 …..have run them tubeless on Flows……fine for whole of last winter (and a chunk of “summer” when they came out of retirement) but did pinch flat damage the rear in some speedy sharp edged rocky descent (surprise feature while on an exmoor trail first outing in otherwise swamp like “summer” terrain) ….split the tyre at the bead about a cm in length and it wouldn’t seal. In hindsight, pressure was too low for the rocky section so will notch it up to operator error. They’ll be back on soon no doubt!Posted 5 years agozippykonaSubscriber

You will pedal through that bog that leaves everyone looking for their boots in the gloop.
Rubbish on rocks but generations of cyclo cross riders can’t be wrong.
