    Sand Tires

    The trails I like to ride are about 60% covered in sand up to 2" deep. Corners have not been good to my skin recently, so I'm thinking something a little wider, and tread that digs through it better. I've heard good things about the Nevegals, any other suggestions for deep, loose (dry) sand?
    Weather today: Hot. Humid. Potholes.

    Best tires I've found for loose, deep sand were Mutanoraptors but... there are really hard to get on and off. But they plow through sand.

    Mutanoraptor

    I'll second that! I run a 2.4 mutanoraptor on my Flight Monocog in the front and most of my riding is done on very sandy trails (central jersey for you!). I am more concerned with the front tire as that is usually where I have problems with traction and control in sand. I also run a 2.1 exiwolf in the back but might swap in a rear velociraptor in 2.1, the one with the center paddle and see how that does.

    2.25 Panaracer Cinder. mine laugh at sand. Battelfield park is about 40% sand when its dry like this. the powdery desert type sand in a lot of spots and much deeper than 2". its the only time I can pull away from the pack due to extra control and traction.
