tires

Postby Gavin Cook » Tue Jan 08, 2013 15:29 pm

Hi
I am looking for advise on what tubeless tires (26 inch) I should use for an 80km MTB marathon that I am riding soon. Most of the route is on dry loose gravely fire tracks and it will be quite dusty (spain).

Thanks
Gavin

Would you use either of these two on both from front and rear or use a diferent tire on the rear ?
If so what would you use on the front ?

Thanks

80km should tire you very well....

For tyres, for that useage the Sammy Slick would be an option, less radical the Smart Sam with it's continuous centre bead (near enough) rolls faster than either RR's.

Conti race king, x king or a combo of the two. Moved to Conti tryres last year (all be it mountain king / rubber qn combo), never looked back - love 'em!!
