Has anyone ridden the new 2.1 or 2.25 Racing Ralphs (non-UST)? Comments on performance, etc?

what weather and terrain are they suitable for?

Would they cope with 1 inch thick mud and wet tree roots?

I'm after a tyre that will cope with both and as light as possible.

For mud opt for a very small tire, that will sink in the mud, and then getting grip on the lower dry ground.

Do you know a tire that copes with wet tree roots well? i dont! :?

For wet roots width helps surely.

I'd rather be riding 2.1s than 1.7s over lots of wet roots.

I hear RR pretty good in dry and wet condition but not so great on loose stuff.

But yeah they are fast tire.
