    Panaracer Razer XC- Please Help!

    I am running bontrager jones acx 26x2.2 tires on my bike. they have worn out (rear tire), so i need new ones. after a lot of useful advice from the forum members here, i have decided on continental speedkings and panaracer razer xc tires.

    I dont have much info on panaracer razer xc ones. could you please tell me if thats a good tire or not? i usually ride on rain soaked trails (strictly XC)- mostly hardpack, but would like to have the versatality to get to loose pack ocassionally.

    im looking at the 2.1 sized ones- to reduce weight. any other recommendations? thanks

    ps. i liked the tread pattern on the bontrager jones acx, and it was enough for the kind of riding that i do.

    The Razer and AXC are very different treads. The former is a low knob race tire. The latter a tall square block and MUCH more aggressive.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks for the reply shiggy. Do you think that the razer will be good for riding on rain soaked trails? I have a feeling that ACX is an overkill for the type of riding that I do, and it just adds to the rolling resistance (and also weight). I ride strictly XC, and as long as the razer's do the job for that, im happy.

    The Razer is a terrible mud tire

    Could you please suggest me a lightweight mud tire (26x2.1/2.2)? Thanks a lot for your help.

    The Bontrager Mud X 2.0 and Panaracer Trailraker 2.1 are about as light as mudders in that size range get.

    Or you could just stay with an ACX.
