Best MTB tyre I've used! Not for road use...

PostedSeptember 7, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Super tacky tyre, great for rutts, rocks, dirt and loose gravel. Not recommended for road riding, if unavoidable keep it short.
Great puncture protection built into the tyre. Got a couple of gashes in the rubber from broken glass but the tyre integrity is sound; no damage to the tube either.
Rolling resistance is pretty high. Purchased a GT Avalanche 3.0 2011 that had 2.35 Maxxis Basic tyres and they weren't too bad, but this seems to have made my gears get heavier.
Currently ridden on the road for 80% of the time, as don't have money for road bike or road tyres. Fitted for 2 months, wear on the middle was quick when fresh, but seems to have levelled off. Edges of the tyre still have tonnes of tread.
Recommended for off road riding though!
