    Aggressive semi slick 29er tyre

    Hey guys,
    Used to run the maxis high roller semi slick on my hard tail 26er and looking for an equivalent for a possible 29er project. Want something that will cope with plenty of ashphalt, but can still be pushed hard through rocky corners and fun trails. Also looking at running them tubeless on the ibis super wide carbon rims for some low pressure fun...thoughts?

    'Aggressive semi slick'

    That's funny!

    Look for something with closely spaced center knobs to roll well on pavement and more aggressive side knobs.

    I would also suggest something at least 2.3 wide to run on those wide rims, most narrow tires are going to handle funny on them.
