    I can't seem to get much info about the above mentioned tyres and would appreciate your experience about these tyres such as it's grip, durability, performance in mud, road, gravel etc.

    Thanks.

    Ignitor: I have a ride or two on one (front mounted). All on dry trail, hardpack to loose, some rock. Rode well. Good grip and braking. Washed out hard in one sandy corner. Specs on my Site.

    Explorer Supersonic: Race tire. Wears quickly. Less flat resistance than the Pro version. Otherwise performs the same.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Very good tires. Light. Thin. Low spikes. Easy to ride. Easy to puncture. I use them mostly for asphalt. If you want to swim in mud -- I do not think they will be good.

    You are correct mate.

    The Flyweight 330's puncture easily, the casing seems too soft but they roll superbly and are very light. Use a flyweight tube of about 100grams and the total weight per wheel is only 330+100grams=430 grams.

    Very sweet!

    Unfortunately I fel that the negatives outweighed its positive attributes.
