I know the popular tires like schwalbe, continental, kenda, etc.
I am looking for something similar to Ikon in terms of 1- volume, 2- shape 3- treads. I am also looking at something durable and not too expensive.
Do you guys have anything to suggest? CRC has those michelin wild racers available that look interesting and not too expensive, but reviews are limited on this model.
I have some continental race king race sport I have tried for the first time yesterday. They roll very fast but they do not inspire confidence when cornering. Do you know if continental have good tread puncture resistance? I like the x-king side treads and the protection version could be nice.
One tire I want to try is the 2013 Rocket Ron 29er... I haven't found a store that has stock of the new tread pattern. I think on Scwalbe's website it is Rocket Ron HS438
I just patched the punctured Ikon, im not sure how it will hold up and im not sure if I will seal it back or use a tube
I used Lepage strong glue on the inside of the tire, let dry, applied a tube patch, covered with another layer of glue...
meanwhile, im still eyeing the continental, but reviews are mixed,some saying they last long, some not. Schwalbe seems to waer quite rapidly.
An interesting combo would be race king at the back and mountain king up front. Both 2.2
I have some small block 8 I've been riding on the road, not sure how they'd do in the trails and not sure about their durability, which is my main concern
Great cornering feel
Very good cornering speed
good braking and accel grip
BUT! only when dry/hardpacked or a bit dusty
so so in the sandy areas
horrible for any bit of moisture. Not good for wet roots.
