    Need Spec Tire recommendations

    Hey guys, my Stumpy came with Fast Trak tires and they're getting to the point of needing to be replaced. While I like them for the low rolling resistance, I would like just a BIT more traction in the looser conditions.

    Can anyone recomend a Spec tire that is close to the rolling resistance of the Fast Trak, but with just a bit more grip? These will be used for everything from loose singletrack to urban riding.

    not specialized but...

    i asked the owner of my LBS (a great mechanic btw) which tires i should go to considering weight, speed, and so cal terrain and he suggested the Kenda Cortez.

    i will soon be riding on the 2.2" version of these tires!

    Depends on where you ride...

    Tarekith - If a Spec tire is what you want I would recommend the Adrenaline Pro. Low rolling resistance and pretty darn sticky. I have these tires on my 05 Stumpy Pro and ride the rocky, rooty singletrack in Pennsylvania.

    If you are willing to go beyond Spec, I would recommend the Kenda Nevegal. 95% of the crew I ride with uses this tire and swears by them.

    I've found the fast trak is a great cornering tire (as well as RR) but for the rear the Roll-X from specialized works better
