what tyres for… cx bikes?
im in need of some new tyres for the cross bike as have my first cross race next weekend my speedkings are great for hardpack trails/paths and the back is on its way out anyway, dont have to worry to much about road use as i have a second wheel set rigged up for that
so what do the stw massive have to offer??Posted 4 years agocat69ukMember
Good write up on a few clinchers. Fancy the Clement myself with latex tubes.Posted 4 years ago
i can heartily recommend the Clements, i’ve got the Strada LGG 120tpi in 28mm for road duties and they’re very fast, very grippy as the recent downpours on baked dry roads left a very slick surface to ride on and the LGG has chevrons on the edge using a softer compound that have prob saved me hitting the deck a few times now, i have felt the front end sliding away but it soon grips and i start to breath again.
For offroad duties i have the Xplor-Mso 120tpi in 40mm and they are ace for heading out with the mindset “head for the hills”, cope very well with fireroads,greasy grass and they cope well with rocky surfaces, not had much of a chance to try them out on mud yet but i guess the PDX Clincher would be the tyre of choice for those conditions.
I don’t race cross so can’t comment regarding that but they’re fitted to my Kinesis Tripster ATR and i ride that everywhere i would take my Hummer.Posted 4 years agotomdSubscriber
Did a race on Maxxis Razes today. Quite mixed / sloppy conditions and they were fine. Descent centre strip means they’re actually pretty good on hard surfaces too. Nice and rounded with good nobble coverage so quite predictable in the slop and seem to clear and grip.Posted 4 years ago
