Yes. Compare with Kenda Navagal & Maxxis High Roller. I'm talking about compare with most popular Dh tires.

I use highroller 2.35 60a compound (hard) rolls the fastest on roads. On trail amazingly grippy. But if the trial is wet and a thin slice of slim builds up on smooth rocks and roots it feels like riding on wet ice. So from the words of the wise " No one tire can ride everything at every conditions....as weak legs choose fast rolling tires, and strong ones uses monster super thick grippies...."

Wow...aggressive! "as weak legs choose fast rolling tires, and strong ones uses monster super thick grippies".
Strong legs...doesn't have to do with the tires. Fast rolling doesn't means they weak.
Have U heard about...different strokes for different folks?
But I love competition...definitely I will give U a heads up when I visit HK.

Thanks for the tyre info.

I'll try a different front tyre after the rear Small Block Eight wears out on my hardtail. I can only tell when I try the tyres myself...

Fyi, heavy rain during the weekends in HK, but nice weather during weekdays.

boogieman,

Sure different foks different strokes. Trying different tires are really fun. For me though, I am not competative just slow riding enjoying outdoors. I prefer fast roling tires so I don't have to pedal as hard. Drop me a line when you are come over, there are a few guys who love to blaze the trail.

ratcat,

Your Tai Mo Shan clip posted on another local bike forum is really awesome! It is not for beginners...

I like fast rolling tires too. Faster rolls less pedaling more efficient. I ride 4-5 days a weeks. 2 days ONLY DH, the rest...look for big hills to climb.

I forgot HK is a wet/humid weather. Our rain season in winter. Not in summer. Summer hot & dry.
Muddy condition. I think Minion, high roller & Navagal better. Small block between thread too small. Mud stuck between them... Not good.
