    Maxxis High Roller around Asheville

    Hi all,

    Before I place my order, does anyone, by any chance, have a Maxxis High Roller tubless ready 27.5/650B tire for sale?

    The high roller was an average tire at best, the high roller II is a better tire, IMO. Currently loving the Ardent on the rear & Minion DHF on the ft. (26" w/tubes)

    I've found an Ardent, which I'm putting in the rear as well. My High Roller will go in the front. I've found one on Amazon for $51 and it's tubless ready. Might get that one if nothing pops up.

    Why is that? Will it skid since there is a gap between the middle and side knobs?

    Minion DHF all the way. Lighter and better grip than the HRII. I rode Ardents for a long time and they roll well but you really gotta be careful cause they wash in corners easy. If you really rail corners and throw the bike into stuff I wouldnt recommend the Ardent.

    Are you opposed to non-Maxxis tires?

    I'm not opposed to non-Maxxis tires. Actually, after reading the comments and doing a bit more research, I ended up ordering the Kenda Nevegal Pros. Better tread knobs for cornering. My bike came with Maxxis Sphinx, which are very bad for cornering and wet stuff.

    Nevegals are a decent all around tire. Next time your due for some meat take a look at Onza tires. They're pretty tough. When my minions wear out Im putting the Ibex's on my trail bike.

    Got my Nevegals put on today and took it for a spin. I'm glad I opted out of the High Rollers.

    I wish I didn't love my Minions as much as I do...
    Should you do more trail work?
