shawly the least hangeriest guy on rotorburn
Might sound strange, but what width is acceptable? 2.25 enough? It was good enough for Port to Port last year... 60 or 120tpi? Hiddenvale is coming up and it's loose and very rocky in there...A list of tyres to try that I compiled for @DMan who mentioned his missus usually used EXO Ikons but was on the hunt for reliable, light, fast rolling options..... There's a few to try
Other similar patterns to the IKON (nice rounded profile and mid to low blocks for good rolling but decent grip) could be.... (FYI I haven't USED most of these)
Country Dry 2
Honey badger XC
And that's not even looking at other Maxxis, Bontrager or Specialized....
