Well i have a koxx red devil and so have always ridden a try-all sticky tyre. I really wanted to try the monty 2.7", but then decided that since i wasnt sure if my frame would fit it, and wether the weight was worth it, i decided against it.
So when i found a CC for sale on ebay for £10, i thought ehehehe thats mine
So i got it and shoved it on my uni. FIrst thing i noticed, the sidewalls of the CC are much thinner than the tryall tyre.
ALso the thread seems stickier, but there isnt much thread on the tryall to compare too, and on second inspection they seem to be equivalent.
The thread pattern is obviously very different, so i dont think a comparison is really possible.
As i put it on my uni i noticed that either the thinner sidewalls make the tyre real easy to put on the rim or its bigger than the try-all but it went on real easily without any lubricant or even forcing it (much :P)
The tryall took all my strength, some burning water and soap and some tools to remove the tyre. One point for the CC
Riding is much nicer on the CC, because my tryall was so worn in odd places it was quite a bouncy ride. But overall i really can’t say which is better.
Jumping - Every trials tyre shoudl be good at this. Well jumping on stairs, its easy to see that more pressure is needed in the tyre to hop or else the tyre folds quite easily.
Jumping 2 - jumping on rails is nicer on the CC, it seems to grip more, but hard to say since the try-all is so worn.
Overall i’m pretty happy with my purchase. I needed a new tyre, and the CC is a nice tyre. Thicker sidewalls would be nice. Also weight is hard to say because my worn try-all tyre is lighter than the brand new CC.
You probably are thinking WHY did he make it equal ??? well cause its really hard to say. I think its alot of personal preference, and either tyre is nice. My advice is : if you got a CC get a tryall, if you got a tryall get a CC
well when this one wears out expect a monty 2.7" review, i’ll check if it fits in my frame if i see someone with it at a meeting or sommit. I hope you liked my review
