    Tires...?

    I am running Hutch Python rear and Scropion front on a Racer X. Stans sealant. 35psi. New York hardpack- some loose soil/ sand. I weigh in at 155lbs. Problem: I find that the tires want to break away on turns...I do not feel confident that they will hold and that they want to wash out. Thus, I brake and take turns wide.
    Could be my crappy technique, maybe not.
    I am willing to grab some new tires...I want lightweight (Yes, I am a weight weenie), but grip...
    What is suggested these days?

    Nobby Nic. Very good traction, can't complain really. Also good-old Continental Explorer Supersonic - way better than their new S.hit King or some... Really.

    I would try lower pressure, like 25 or 30. That should give you a little more grip.
