Rough stuff tyres, 26"

Postby fast but dim » 31 Dec 2016, 4:53pm

I've got Vittoria randonneur pro's on my Dawes Sardar, which I cannot fault for general use.

There's a fundraiser for the bowland Pennine mountain rescue at the end of the month, and it's a mixed terrain event.

I've got MTB tyres ( on my MTB) but can anyone recommend a fast rolling tyre for mixed trails? ( I cannot bring myself to say gravel riding!)

I'd rather ride the sardar than my MTB, and the tyres will do for summer trail riding.

Schwalbe Marathon Mondials are decent on most surfaces except sloppy mud.

Schwalbe Landcruisers,quick on tarmac open enough not to clog in mud.They're a budget grade Schwalbe tyre but don't let that put you off,they'll beat the pants off Mondials on the road and off but will wear out in half the time.
I found Tour Rides gave a stodgy ride and punctured easily.

^^^ WHS. Landcruisers for me, 26 x 1.75 IIRC. Do roll very well, with the additional security of slime tubes.

I'm a fan of Schwalbe Marathon Cross tyres, 26 x 1.75, which roll well and work offroad too.
