    S-Works Renegade 1.95/Renegade Control 1.95....or straight to Ikon?

    A new bike is shod with a front S-Works Renegade 1.95 and the rear a Renegade Control 1.95. It's a light carbon HT 29er and I'll mainly use it on long climbs and loose-over-hardpack trails. NO hucking or rocks or roots. Running tubeless, rider weight 170 geared up.

    Normally I run larger fronts and a narrower back but I have been told these are high volume. Never the less, how is the durability. Are these vaporware raceday type tires?

    Or should I just take the slight weight penalty for a lot more confidence up front and get the Ikon EXO so many are liking for the aforementioned conditions.

    I love the Renegade Control as a rear tyre. Try a Fast Trak or IKON as a front. The IKON will have slightly better grip but the Fast Trak rolls faster.

    I have Renegades front and back and find they work well in the conditions you describe.
