Just want to point out that thread is almost 2 yrs old and tired tech has advanced since then. If i can find the link somewhere it has up to date info with all tires, specs, conditions, cost, and sizes
$50 per tire is tough, but then again i run tubeless and am looking for solid rim connection. no one really runs ust bead tires as it is over kill and hard to work with. Maxxis does make really great tires. many of us really prefer the Ardent. the 2.4 EXO model is great as it has added sidewall protection, seats tubeless better and works well in our climate. only drawback, weight, they are 800g pigs. i am personally looking into new rubber, i dabble in 2.2 EXO Ikon's but only in the driest parts of the year. if $ was no object i would try some of the higher end Schwalbe tires.

Thanks Paul. I have been looking into the ignitors after reading the other thread. Can you recommend a size? No luck at local bike shops so far stocking any, and online it seems the most abundant size for 29ers is 2.1
I haven't had the opportunity to try a wide variety, but tried and true have been WTB velociraptors especially in wet conditions. They do have a higher rolling resistance than some but yu can get them for $20-25 each. In dry conditions, I have found the continental verticles to be quite effective. They are light and roll easy, but have a good grip, however, they suck on wet roots.
Hello. I am looking to upgrade the tires on my Trek Mamba which are the stock tires that came on the bike. Doing some research on the internet, a lot of people are saying it all depends on where you ride and how you ride. So I thought it might be a good question to pose to you guys. What tires do you recommend for xcountry mtbing around here? This is for a 29er tube setup. Don't really want to spend more than $50 a tire unless you can convince me otherwise, thanks!
