Do you get commission?
I'm currently running Fire XC Pro's 2.1" at 580g a piece.
They are good tyres but was wondering if there is a tyre someone could recommend which is good in mud / wet roots etc and also light.
lol, no i don't get commission ...i don't even really like IRC tires ...actually the exact tires that you currently have were also at the shop (Fire XC Pro 2.1 at 580g each) ...they had a similar amount of tread but were about 30g heavier and exactly twice the price of what the Mythos were selling for ...so the choice for him was fairly obvious
but judging by his performance with the Mythos in the snow i would say they would be just as impressive in the wet/muddy conditions ...there are large gaps on the tread to avoid any snow/mud getting packed in as well the compound is fairly soft so that helps in the snow as well as traction on slippery wet roots ....as the Fire XC Pro 2.1 seem so similar to the Mythos XC, i would say that you would be absolutely fine with the tires that you have ...but if you're looking to shed some grams, i'd consider maybe a Conti Explorer Pro which is about 515g ...then there's always the Supersonic version that is about 100g lighter with an even stickier compound ....the tradeoff is it wears out faster ....colder temperatures help to minimize this though ...good luck!
