Maybe I'll go for Maxxis High rollers then???
I'm not bothered about a fast rolling tyre as I've got legs to over come that :P , but comparing my MK 2.4s to High Rollers or my Specialized Enduro dual compounds, there are only half as many blocks on the shoulders of the tyre, surely they cannot offer as much grip. If I'm climing wet rocks or roots at an angle then a greater number of softer compound blocks will surley grip harder than widely spaced blocks. I'm toying ewith the idea of reverting back to my 2.3 Enduros with innertubes, but it sems a waste of my UST rims!
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the Continentals are a good tyre in the right circumstances, I just don't think they're the best for what I need.
and Steve, thanks for the tips on my riding style, but I think I'm alright on that front!
