Does anyone else find the Maxxis High Holler tyre energy sapping. These tyres are fitted to my Ragley and i dont know if its my fitness but they make riding hard going. They dont seem to roll particularly well really draggy and slipp on wet grassy surfaces.
You are not the only one!!!! They zap my energy in no time at all i did have the super tacky on my ghost and i had to pedal to go down hill on Tarmac!!! But point them down hill on mud and rock wiith 30lb in the front and 35lb in back and they were great needless to say they are now off the bike waiting for the right place!!!
I've got them both ends.. and have been looking around for a decent rear tyre a little faster rolling but has to be good when it gets a bit softer as the trails around here are like that . they do seem to be hard work at times but i trust them though. had some schwalbe nobby nics on and off they seem to be ok maybe worth another go. also was looking at other maxxis tryes also.
As dan says, 60a compound is faster rolling than super tacky, high rollers in general are an all round tyre, you get faster rolling tyres but you will most probably be sacrificing grip or tyre durability, panracer xc do seem to be popular though.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely i a well preserved body... but to skid in sideways,totally knackered and worn out shouting....Holy shit!...WHAT A RIDE!!
Have ran high rollers 60a ust's for years. Great tyre. But not the fastest. Try 2.1 crossmark rear with 2.3 high roller front both 60a. Grip on front mega low roll on rear. Although iv just used a set of conti barons as a mud tyre & they were good for that but depends what your riding on.?
Had the high rollers 2.35 super tackeys from Halfords, They nearly killed me goin up hill but they did grip well on the down hill very well. changed over to chilly rubber queens best all round tyre I have found.
Need some advice on a faster rolling rear tyre, running maxxis dh minions 60a front and rear which are a mega heavy and slow rolling for the xc stuff we do around the clywds. They do however grip like ?!#@ and should i fit a faster running rear or just change both for a lighter set and lose some front end grip? Advice and possible options much appreciated
