    New xc tires

    I'll be running a 100km race on a IMBA epic trail (Paul's dirty enduro in the Ganaraska forest) and was looking for a better tire for my specialized rockhopper 29er right now it has the stock specialized ground control tires. What are the best tires for $70ish?

    New xc tires

    Fun race! Specialized Fast Traks are excellent for Ganaraska. Nice volume, fast rolling, work well tubeless and quite grippy for a "dry" tire. I actually raced the 100km Paul's last year in the worst slop I've ever ridden in on Fast Traks and they were surprisingly effective. That said, your Ground Controls are excellent all-rounders.

    Check out the new WTB Nineline 2.2's. Super fast rolling, decent cornering and long wearing. They are not the best in very loose stuff, but on packed trails they scream
