I'm starting in some local enduro events, and there is a lot of downhill sections (lot of roots, sometimes loose rocks )
I'm looking for a 'proper' front tire
now i'm using Fat Albert 2.4'' on front, but it's too hard (it's not a TrailStar compound)
so i'm looking for not too heavy, but big volume, soft tire for a front.
Minion DHF 2ply - it's very popular, but it weights ~1200g :/
Onza Ibex DH 2.4 - it's 2ply, 45a compound and weights ~1000g - but no one is familiar with it, it looks good, but knobs have crosswise pattern, is it good for a front ?
Schwalbe Muddy Mary 2.5'' FR trailstar - weight only 990g, but it's 1ply (will it roll/fold during turns?)
Schwalbe Muddy Mary 2.35'' FR vertstar - soft, weight 890g, 1ply
Spec Butcher SX - is it a front tire? (and Clutch SX is for a rear?), it's called 1.5ply, anyway, it's not available in my region :/
I will use that tire on WTB Frequency i23 rim with sealant.
Can you recommend a tire with an explanation?
