    Faster of the Three

    Of the three which is the fastest rolling, least resistance tire?
    I am looking for personal experience.

    Faster of the Three


    Larry by quite a bit. The Dillinger is pretty fast and has a bit more cornering grip than the Larry. The Knard can be made a little faster by going to a narrow rim.

    I run 70mm Uma ll most of the time. My narrow rim is around 40mm. I ride tight trails with lots of rocks. roots and lots of off camber stuff. I do have 90mm Uma ll, Fat Sheba's and Marge Light's and have done quite a bit of swapping around. I use the Ride With GPS metrics (and sometimes Strava KOM's)to confirm or deny my seat of the pants findings.

    I have tried all three on snow--Larrys and Knards only once each, Dillingers are one of my main winter tires. The Dillingers seemed fastest, but the snow was fairly soft the one time I rode with Larry tires, so I am not sure I got a good sense of rolling resistance. .

    I should have been more specific. I don't do much snow ridding. These would be for my wife's bike for an alternative to her very aggressive NATE's. We plan to do a couple gravel, fire road type races next year. mtuck1 has Floydes but I want a little more traction than that.

    I had my black floyd's out on the dirt and was amazed how much traction they had from hard pack to loose sand , I think all we really need in the summer is a fat renegade type tire
    I am slow therefore I am

    The Larry is pretty fast with higher pressures. And, my wife thinks they are fast.

    The Larry (actually bfl) is still my go to tire in the summer very fast and still plenty o traction in the dry stuff.

    The Floyds are great (as long as it's mostly dry) and they love gravel! As I said before, in the race I did this summer the top two fat bikes were on Floyds, and it wasn't that dry.
