I know there is probably a great amount of discussion on this topic somewhere. but I just wanted to refreash my knowledge.
What would you recommend for a all-around XC tire (or tire combination) for Summer and Fall? I am from NorthEast and these tires will be used on Fire Roads, Single tracks, bike trails, gravel roads etc. it can get wet and muddy sometimes. I need something efficient (comperatively fast without totally sacrificing the traction) and good on turning and cornaring. Durability would also be a preferred quality.
last year I used Hutchison Scorpions in the front and WTB Velociraptor in the back (mind the spellings), it worked great, except from the fact that I had to change the scorpions after a short time. performance was great though.
I also used some Tiogas, but did not find them specially effective on turns and cornering on loose surfaces.
I would greatly appreciate your recommendations? thanks
