I am in the UK (as you already know). I got the following problem. Maxxis produces several different High-Roller 2.35 models, single/dual ply, ST/SR/61sh durometers, which means 6 tire models for high-roller 2.35. Is there a way to tell visually which is which?
By the way the same goes for Minions, again dual/single ply and three compounds...6models.
I am interested into either a pair of minions or high-rollers on 2.35 dimension, single-ply (less weight). I need DH traction (tight technical DH, slow UK terrain , like tight NS singletrack), but i also dont want to carry much given that i do 10miles on the road with loads of uphills in order to reach the trailhead. So, good DH traction, reasonable weight (850-900) , low wear rate, fancy sidewall decals (!!!???). Will the minions or highrollers singleply 61sh fit the bill?
By the way....how can i tell between a single and a dual ply? does the red trim on the sidewall has anything to do with it?
