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.
