    Tire suggestions for 2008 trance x1

    Any good tire suggestions for my 2008 trance x1. I ride mostly dry trail with loose conditions (branches, leaves, pine needles) and the 2.1 nevegals it comes with are a little wider then what I'm used to (been riding specialized pro 2.0's). Or should I just switch to 1.9 nevegals?

    2.25 Schwalbe Nobby Nic or Racing Ralph are great. Fast rolling, light, what's not to like (OK they're a little pricey!). Go for 2.1 if you're a real weight weenie.

    Nevegals roll like you're hauling a skip full of bricks!

    I am currently running Maxxis ADvantage 2.25 front, Maxxis Crossmark 2.1 rear.

    I like the setup so far..

    Hutchinson Toro 2.15

    They come up pretty small for a 2.15 so they’re gonna be a bit smaller than the Nevegal 2.1. They grip predictably and are faster, tougher, better in mud and feel better on the trail than the Nevegal!

    Racing Ralph or Nobby Nic or a combination of both - 2.1 for me on a Trance X0
