I don’t know that I can be as exhaustive as Sponge was on the trials tyres, but I do think we need more reviews on tyres for muni, so here’s my contribution:
Twenty-Four Inch Tyres:
24" Duro Wildlife 3"
Soft rubber, sticky, wears quickly, softer sidewalls, poor mud traction, fairly durable.
Good for lighter riders who want a soft rebound.
24" Intense DH 3"
Firm rubber, sticky, stiff sidewalls, long lasting, good mud traction, durable, heavy
Good for heavier riders, thopse who want more edge control for carving.
24" Kenda Kolossal DH 2.6"
A basic tyre, inexpensive, okay rebound, moderately soft tread, medium heavy, good in the mud, knobs wear oddly, poor hard surface performance
Good entry level tyre.
24" Arrow Racing Launch 2.35"
Good all around hard surface tyre, not a lot of volume, more of an XC trye, medium soft rubber, fairly lightweight, good construction.
A good trye for XC and lighter folks who don’t need a superduty tyre.
Twenty-Six Inch Tyres:
26" Gazz Jr 2.6"
Discontinued tyre, a lot like the Intense, maybe heavier, not quite as sticky, a good all around tyre, heavy.
Good for heavier riders, not worth paying extra since the Intense is available.
26" TRYALL STIKY 2.5"
Medium soft rubber, sticky, good mud traction, decent volume for a narrow tyre, more of an XC tyre, but can handle tech and smaller drops depending on rider weight, moderately heavy
Good all around tyre for mixed riding.
Twenty-Nine Inch Tyres:
29" WTB Stout 2.35"
Biggest 29er tyre available, but still not a true muni tyre, sidewalls are soft, tyre is very heavy, tread is only moderately sticky, good for fast XC on hard surfaces.
29" Kenda Navegal 2.3"
A close second in size to the Stout, not a bad ride, not too sticky, good for XC, will handle paved surfaces.
29" Panaracer Rampage 2.35"
A nice MTB tyre, but too soft in the sidewall for muni unless it’s a firm surface as at low pressures this tyre will fold. Lighter than the Navegal and Stout, not a great paved suraced tyre.
Please feel free to add tyres not already listed, try to include width and weight where possible.
