Michelin Wild Mud Advanced was £39.99, now £24.29
Ride with more confidence in the wet.
We say: “Across disgusting slop, big roots, off-cambers and edges that usually put the fear into you, the deforming tread blocks dampen any unexpected pings or grip outages, making you feel super-safe.” Read the review.
Mavic Charge Pro XL was £50.00, now £44.81
Sturdy, supportive and sticky cult choice for all-but-slop trails.
Even at lower pressures, Mavic’s stiff, double-ply, Guard 2 casing is supportive and doesn’t twist when leant over, encouraging you to ride harder. It provides superb puncture and rip protection too — we’ve yet to damage a Charge tyre after years of using it, which is pretty remarkable.” Read the review.
Specialized Slaughter was £50.00, now £30.00
Sun’s out, Slaughters out!
We say: “In dry conditions it’s a total winner, but in terms of out-and-out confidence, grip levels aren’t quite as assured as the Schwalbe when it’s very slimy.” Read the review.
Maxxis High Roller II was £69.99, now £30.99
The venerable High Roller still cuts it, especially as a milder front tyre or a tenacious rear tyre.
We say: “Maxxis has offered a High Roller for what feels like forever, and this second-generation model beefs up and tweaks the tread for more versatility. Slightly better in wet, looser dirt than the popular Minion DHF, it’s great on both ends, although choosing the 3C compound on the front provides way better confidence and edge grip on wet roots and rocks.” Read the review.
Kenda Hellkat Pro was £50.00, now £29.99
Kenda is properly back in the game with this one.
We say: “The Hellkat is seriously impressive in gnarly terrain, works on smoother hardpack better than it should and is really comfortable on bumpy surfaces like degraded trail centres or small embedded rocks. It’s tough and light, and being £15 cheaper than rival high-end models with equivalent performance.” Read the review.
Schwalbe Magic Mary was £58.99, now £39.95
An aggro-enduro all-rounder especially in the larger volume sizes.
We say: “Schwalbe Magic Mary has always been super grippy and now lasts longer and rolls faster than before. It works really well even in the drier months.” Read the review.
Maxxis Minion DHF was £66.99, now £35.00
A classic that does everything apart from real loose/muddy conditions.
We say: “The classic ‘L’ shaped lugs and long rectangular, ramped centre knobs remain, but the tread pattern is pumped up to suit the bigger casing. The Minion has always been a fast favourite in loose and dry terrain, but in the wet, doesn’t bite as hard as more splayed out treads in softer dirt.” Read the review.
Schwalbe Rock Razor Addix was £58.99, now £40.00
Great back tyre.
We say: “The Schwalbe Rock Razor we’ve previously rated as a best back tyre now rocks Schwalbe’s new Addix compounds. Superb, fast rolling rear tyre experience. Schwalbe Addix compounds are designed by the boffin that invented Conti’s Black Chili rubber, the complex recipes aim to increase durability, while also improving damping and grip. This semi-slick design uses a low profile, file-like tread and rolls fast anyway, so it was a no-brainer to opt for the softer Addix blend here.” Read the review.
Maxxis Minion DHR II was £58.99, now £33.99
Best all-rounder of the modern era.
We say: “Maxxis Minion DHR II WT arguably offers the most grip of all Maxxis models suitable for mixed conditions, and works fine year round. With its blocky tread slabs and pronounced shoulder channel, the Minion is a mountain bike classic and regular winner of our group test.” Read the review.
