Tioga Yellow Kirin Magnum 66 review

The relatively wide-spaced knobs and high weight make the Yellow Kirin the slowest here, but it'll still leave most bigger-knobbed tyres behind.

Our review

Slow, but consistent all-round grip and lasting protection
Skip to view product specifications

The relatively wide-spaced knobs and high weight make the Yellow Kirin the slowest here, but it’ll still leave most bigger-knobbed tyres behind. The upside is consistent braking, driving and cornering grip in dry to slightly damp conditions. Any slide is calm and controlled if you do exceed its limits.

The oversized (it’s nearer 2.4/2.5in), thick-wall Magnum 66 casing and hard rubber lasts well and shrugs off steps, rock swipes and thorns better than average too. But they leave it feeling ‘wooden’ rather than tactile, even at lower pressures, so its limits are not immediately obvious. You’d be better off going for the same-price slow rebound versions with the lighter Cyclex casing if ultimate grip is a priority.
