    What do you all think is the best MTB slick

    Weight, rollability, puncture resistance etc etc

    I tend to ride conti avenues 1.3 or vred s-slicks for the ride but they dont last too long.

    A 26 x 1.5 slick is the best for commuting.

    Performance, as Junebride states, is a good bet. I have also heard very good things about Ritchey Tom Slicks.
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
