- What tyres for……….
Liking the look of the der kaiser and I’ve never tried black chilli, pricey though!Posted 5 years ago
Yep, pricey, but oulasts most with grip in line with a super tacky Maxxis. So, not all that bad when you will be shredding tires through the season
Our partner rental store made the switch to Der Kaiser on all of their DH rental fleet because of the sheer amount of time it was saving them on shop labor switching out the oem worn out Maxxis or repairing flats on renters with insurance.
Food for thought
Oh and rubber is typically more expensive over here.Posted 5 years ago
£65 quid in Summit after taxes at their full retail ($89.99)
Things in Whistler aren’t necessarily over priced. but like you say typically at the RRP that the distributors require shops to advertise at which is just the same for Vancouver. Same deal as most UK LBS’s as far as pricing really. Price is RRP unless you ask for a discount, know someone or are adding tires to a bike purchase..Posted 5 years ago
We don’t have the consumer luxury of e-stores like Chain Reaction over here so shops all have to pay their brick and mortar overheads and the USA e-stores don’t make sense when you factor in the boarder and customs 🙁
You can get discounts off RRP at most places though if you ask.
I reckon you could get a set of Der Kaisers for £55 with a good (achievable) discount, but chain reaction still just wins!
