Could you recommend me a pair of tyres for year round use on my hardtail, please? Previous tyres were front WTB Trail Boss 2.25 650b and rear WTB Beer Line 2.2 650b.

What sort of riding and surface will you be using them for?

Schwalbe Rocket Rons work well in most conditions. I don't recall flints when I lived in Loughborough which can be thier undoing.

If you are doing on-road riding compass tyres are the nicest I have used and come in 650b sizes.

Any road riding will be just to connect off road sections.
Riding is roughly split 60% off road, most often Peak District, and 40% trail centres.

I use Racing Ralph's as a great fast rolling tyre. For trail centres, Nobby Nicks probably a better option.


I'm a trendy consumer. Just look at my stupid phone.

I run Hutchinson Toro's back and front on one of my hardtails, and on my second hardtail a Schwalbe Racing Ralph on the front, with a Schwalbe Rocket Ron on the rear. I quite like the loose feel that the Racing Ralph on the front gives. The Rocket Ron struggles for traction during the wet winter months, but I stick with the set up, as I also enjoy the low rolling resistance that they offer.

Toro's are superb, but they seem to develop a habit of becoming porous on the sidewall if run for any length of time as a tubeless set up. I have had two sets in row become porous, which is obviously not an ideal thing to have happen.
