After some years on Conti and Schwalbe I'm returning to Maxxis.
What tyre would you recommend to run tubeless on Flow EX rims (tape and sealant only).
I ride S. Wales trail centres and off to Morzine next month.

Won't be buying dual-ply as they'll be a killer everywhere except the Alps.

Looking at the dhf exo 2.5 super tacky...

    If you're looking at single ply Minion's, look at the Specialized Butcher Control.

    It's basically a Minion but better in every way. Grippier, faster, lighter and 2Bliss casing so tubeless ready. The 2.3 also isn't massively undersize, it's about the same size as a 2.5 Minion. I use one with a tube on my Flow EX but I will eventually be running tubeless.

    I've looked at the Butcher a fair bit...
    You reckon there's more grip than the 42a Super Tacky?
    What do you run on the back with it?

    I personally find there's more grip than the 2.35 Super Tacky Minon and High Roller, yes. I use a 2.25 Crossmark on the back. Great combo, fast, grippy, tough and not overly heavy.
