    2019 Schwalbe Magic Mary 29 x 2.6 ADDIX Soft

    My next front tire. Doesn't seem to be officially released, but it's in stock in Germany.

    Finally! I've been surprisingly very pleased with the NN's SpeedGrip in this size config on the front and back but was concerned about the front end traction. It's doing great! I'm experimenting on i30's and really would like to get them on some carbon i35 hoops though to see how they run. This MM will make for an even better combination on my trails, especially if we actually see some rain this year.

    The 2.6" Nobby Nic is not much bigger than a 2.5" Minion. I am guessing the casing on the Magic is the same as the Nic and it will not be a particularly wide tire but I could be wrong.

    For high speed stuff the 2.5 Minion is still the gold standard and if you can squeeze a 3.0 Minion in your fork it will grip the gnar like a fatbike tire.
    The wheel is a extension of the foot

    I bet your right the they share the same casing. The casing on the 2.6 is much wider than the DHF 2.5 and about the same height.

    I gave up on Minion because they're so far off with nominal sizing. My 2.6 NN's do not go as wide on i30's as I expected them in contrast to how wide all my other Schwalbe sizes go but I think it will increase closer to the nominal, if not exceed it on an i35 hoop. The 2.5 Minion on an i30 isn't as wide as a 2.35 Schwalbe would be on the same hoop.

    Any size measurements and feedback vs the 2.35?

    I totally disagree. Minions are wide on the knobs but narrow in the casing. They also don't grip like a Mary on all surfaces, they lack any transition which is important sometimes on flat/off camber and generally loose corners.

    Now the Assegai, that's a good Maxxis tyre.

    Regarding sizes, here are some measurements off of several tires and rim widths, all at 20 psi.

    27.5x2.6 Nobby Nic Addix on Ibis 742 (35mm inner). 2.57"
    27.5x2.6 Nobby Nic Addix on Ibis 735 (29mm inner). 2.49"
    29x2.35 Nobby Nic Addix on I9 270 (27mm inner) 2.38"
    29x2.3 DHR2 on TRX1 (30mm inner) 2.31"
    29x2.3 DHF on TRX1 (30mm inner) 2.30"

    That's carcass widths on all. In all 5 of these combos/pressure the knobs were no wider than the carcasses.

    All the 27.5 x 2.6 reviews say the spacing is too far apart on the 2.6. And isnít optimal on hard pack berms. Too tractor like and only for deep sand. I wonder if they fixed that on this release?

    I ordered 4 of these (29 x 2.6 MM) for my wife and I to take on a riding roadtrip to the PNW the past 2 weeks.

    They didn't show up in time -- not til 3 days after we'd left.

    And they aren't much use to us in the desert.

    Thus, I have 4 of 'em for sale. NIB. Send PM if interested.

    Replaced front 2,35 MM 29 with 2,6 MM, and it is a big difference in size. Rolls over very well, and grip is great on wet surfaces. By 1 bar, it is not so accurate in high speeds, but definitely great option for winter. New Hans Dampf 2,6 speedgrip works great on rear too. On asfalt I noticed rolling difference, but in the forest not so much, if at all, and this is great set of super grippy tires. Also the fork feels super smooth now, since tire is providing some extra softness.

    Looking to order a Magic Mary 27.5 x 2.6. I'm seeing two options, a downhill (1030g, MSRP $98) and a lighter version (935g, MSRP $103). Any advice on which? I'm riding a 2015 carbon Norco Sight. Came with 140mm on the front. I made it 150mm. I'm in Western North Carolina and like to ride pretty aggressive stuff.
