    Halo Choir Master in stock @ BTI

    Just noticed the Halo Choir Master 29 x 2.35 is finally available. Have your LBS call BTI if you want a set.

    I have no connection to BTI, Halo and do not sell them.

    Disappointed they felt the need to reduce the tread depth to 3.5mm from the 5mm of the 26" version. Afraid of the weight?

    I have a choirmaster as front tire, converted to ghetto tubeless, and I'm loving it.

    Must get one of these ordered, seem them at UKbikestore or somewhere for 20, mounted on my Halo Freedom Rim

    Look abit more agressive than the Rampage I've got in ( not ridden no wheels or forks )

    Gotta love it. Very fitting names to distinguish prepubescent from postpubescent.

    Choir Boy is the name of the kiddie wheeled version.

    Choir Master is the name of the big wheeled version.

    Looks like a fun tire. I have 3 new tires in a pile to try, so these will have to wait a while. Now if only BTI would get the Halo Freedom Disc in 36h back in stock I would be in business

    I like it. Kind of looks like a resolution, with a couple extra tread blocks in the middle. I might have to try one, when my Resolution wears out, or I rip the sidewall out.
    I need a cool saying to put here.

    Question

    Would anyone have an idea if this tire is comparable to a Resolution at all? I've got a pair of Resolutions and I wouldn't need a duplicate of that tire if they are similar.

    i am running Resolutions on my xc, i would think these would have better extreme side
    cornering with that nice row at the edge and a good gap to the middle row of knobs.

    i cut my nevi's to feel like that for my last race and loved them.

    Alex is that ur fox 40 with that tire if so u have alot of room there still for a bigger tire it would seem. The fork looks very stout still after shaving some out.

    No chance to measure these yet? Would like to hear initial impressions on it if you have ridden it at all. but would love width and volume specs.

    My Rampage front has scared me a half dozen times on my new Canzo; I'm going faster and cornering harder. There is a point where it washes out, and then a little further over and it catches and stands back up!

    The further wrap around on the tread has me wondering...

    I've had one for a few weeks and like it a lot. I run it in combination with a Rampage in the back. Given, the only other tire I've had are the Bonties that came with my Paragon.

    Ramp/Halo Combo Here

    Ramp up front and Halo on Back. TK rims.

    Good tire so far. Hooks up in the NC clay, quartz and roots fine.

    Size from memory fitted to 21mm Halo Rims is 54mm Knob to Knob width, 49mm's rim to top.

    There a rounder profile than the Rampage role nicely down the middle.

    All over a better tyre than the Rampage, Rampage roles on dry ground abit better but thats abit it.

    Mud wise, better than the Rampage but the knob heights abit low to be brilliant.

    Put them on wet rocks and man made terrain though, and bags of grip low knob height ='s no squirming, big enough volume to handle it.

    Halo Man Made Trail Centre / Rocky area tyre.
    Rampage Dry ish forest track.
    Bonty ACX 2.2 All rounder which handles mud reasonibly well for a none mud specific tyre.

    I love the opinions here, seriously. Two replies with differing uses of Halo/Rampage front and rear, or rear and front, or vice versa....
    I know there is ot "best answer", but two replies, two opinions.
    Anyone else like the Halo better than the Rampage on the front????

    I like your hand model pointing out the axle or disc there as well.

    I've tried both, front only, Rampage was good when it was dry loads of grip, but first time it rained it just kept washing out of the time, the Halo was much better in the same conditions.

    Halo's a very soft compound, grips to rocks and stuff fantastically even when wet, why it's my rocks / man made trails tyre didn't let me down going down snowdon at speed while it was raining
