Here we go again....tyres....wich one for AM/Enduro
After reading hundreds of reviews,trying lots of different sh*t, and looking through all the mtb forums i just can't decide.
What is the best AM/Enduro tyre?..i'm still looking for a allround tyre wich combines low rolling resistance(for the xc-round) with good grip for my Enduro trips.Does such a tyre exist or do i need to go for two sets?
At this time i'm running Maxxis Ardents and already had some flat's becouse of snakebite's,but the grip and rolling resistant seem ok.
What are you guy's (and girls ofcourse)running on your AM/Enduro rig?
not AM but I try to get the biggest tires on my SS just because I like it. I'm running a Panaracer Rampage 2.35 up front and, eh...it's ok. nothing special.
but the rear...Panaracer Cedric Gracia 2.25. this is the best big tire I've ever run on the rear. large lugs & really grippy compound make for awesome traction, but the center lugs are unique & provide for great rolling on XC-type terrain. I'm loving it a lot. I'd be interested to run it on the front as well and see how it did. I'm not that impressed with the Rampage yet. I thought the Kenda Nevegal was a better front tire...
I've had a Maxxis 29x2.3 High Roller II on the front of my Banshee Prime for 3/4 of a year now, and I'd highly recommend it when it (finally) becomes available. I've got other prototypes to try (DHF 2.5, DHR II 2.3 and DHF 2.3, and a Hans Dampf 2.35), but I never have gotten around to mounting them b/c the High Roller II just works so darn well.
