At 330 lbs and 6'4", I've found that what works for the normal MTB'r doesn't work for me. I ride in Kansas City which has a surprising amount of rocks and have had trouble with tires holding up. Also at my weight, some tires feel really washy without a lot of pressure. Below are the tires that I've found to work and am looking for some others to try. I've also listed some tires that I want to try and haven't or are just coming out. What works for the other hard riding super clydes out there?
Tires I've Tried
WTB Dissent 2.5 29er - ultimate tire for me, ultra stiff sidewall, huge sticky knobs that stick to rocks like glue, and good volume to soak up the bumps. I hear WTB has held production recently and not sure when they will be available again.
Maxxis Ardent 2.4 29er - ok tire that I love up front, super volume and good traction. Don't like it out back cause sidewall isn't stiff enough, feels wishy washy.
Tires I Want to Try
Geax Gato 2.3 29er - TNT AM sidewall is supposed to be very stiff. Availabe now. Top Ten 29"er Products of 2011: Geax Gato TNT 29"er Tires
Geax Sturdy 2.3 29er - TNT AM sidewall and huge lugs. Coming soon. Geax Sturdy 29"er Tires: Final Review
Maxxis Minion 2.5 29er - Burly downhill tire. Coming soon hopefully.
Specialized Purgatory 2.4 29er - Looks like a good prospect, not sure about sidewall though.
