Recognizing a Nimbus Nightrider Lite

Not on the nightrider tires, but I have found that the thinner the tire the more you get resonance, especially if you go tubeless. A humming tire makes you feel like you are going fast :sunglasses:

Perhaps the rounder profile on the lite tyre at the higher pressures that most people seem to run is the cause then. Mine is on the verge of being too soft for nice cornering, and I’m not a particularly heavy individual.

My NRL has a noticeably tackier and squeakier compound than my NR. That may contribute to the noise.

Note that my NR is about five years older than my NRL, so the rubber may just be going hard with age.
