Good point Percy, the could be awesome. But... has the Maaxis bubble and de-laminate problem (when used with Stans) been sorted with the new tubeless ready tyres?

It should have been. :)

I use Joe's ECO sealant, which is awesomesauce, and seals those hard to seal tyres better than anything else. :thumbsup:

I have never had any sort of degredation of Maxxis tyres or any other tyres I have used and I have only ever used Stans sealant? Maxissi have always been all G for me

I've seen hundreds of tubelessed Maxxis tyres that have used Stan's jizz and never seen one crap out due to the solution. :eh:

Still a Continental fanboy.

Mountain Kings mostly. Often a Rubber Queen* on the front. Sometimes RQ both ends.

Love the way their sticky rubber hangs on to roots and rocks (which is where my happy place is).

* previously Hobby Nick was my winter tyre. A bit better that RQ on clay / mud, but don't hang on to wet roots so well. It's all about the moist roots.

I was a conti fanboi until I got the latest 2.4 Conti Trail King. What a fookin piece of shit! I got the all bells and whistles protection model with black chilli... and it sure as shit aint the same black chilli the RQs had. I just about laid the bike down so many times in corners because the tyres just dont grip... and whats more after about 10 rides I was missing about 5% of the knobs... Some had been completely peeled off the tyre while others were just missing half knobs. They make wet roots feel like you are riding on ice!

I dunno who changed their compound or if I got a bad batch or something... but I aint spending any more money on Contis!!

Colin you should try the Minion DHF 3C exo as a winter tyre. Sticky rubber but single ply. Good volume etc. Sets up tubeless fine.

I've not got on with Maxxis tyres in the (distant) past. And still have one each brand new Mountain King and Rubber Queen tyres siting at home.

So it will be a while before I'm needing to buy anything. Hearing good stuff about exo though.
