TOPIC: Tire Recommendations?

Re: Tire Recommendations? 1 year, 1 month ago #44379

I second the 29-3 / XR3 tires. They are big, fairly light, grip well, and roll fairly fast for what they are. The 29-2 / XR2 is even bigger and faster if you don't need quite as much grip.

Yeah, they were quite nice tonight. I felt like I was going a little slower, but that most likely was due to the high heat and humidity. I was more soaked tonight than any time this summer. I thought we were through with that shit!

Exactly. We were all drenched tonight.

Over the past 2 years all my bikes I've switched over to the Maxxis Ignitors.. they just work!

Re: Tire Recommendations? 1 year ago #44419

This was my 1st season on Maxxis Ignitors 29ers, I got to say I was less than impressed with them. I have a strong feeling I'll be going back to Maxxis Crossmarks next summer.

When the weather became a little wet in August I swapped my Ignitor back to a Maxxis Minion DHF 2.35 super tacky up front and a Maxxis High Roller 2.35 60a in back and I must say that I am enjoying these tires a lot more. Now that it is dry again I can really compare them to the Ignitor. More control and confidence in corners and the softer front tire compound feels a bit more supple on the roots. There is a small weight and rolling resistance penalty but I am not racing so they work well.

The crossmark look slike a great tire for racing in the dry.

Do you think you really need the EXO casing for our trails? It adds almost a quarter pound of weight on a set of tires.
