Best hs33 pads and 24 tyres for wet/muddy conditions

14 posts in this topic

I am going to switch to a full disc setup soon, I have yellow pads on my hs33's no idea what they are but does anyone have a recommendation for wet muddy conditions.

As for the tyres I have a moto digger rear that's ok just wondering if there's better for winter

French Coust Pads or TriLite CNC backed green pads. 

Maxxis Swampthing super tacky if you can get hold of one. If not probably a Schwalbe Fat Albert

Only problem with the Schwalbe compound is it's a bit plasticky - I'd defo try get hold of a Swampthing or if not a Highroller? Just make sure you get the 40a compound, although again that's easier said than done:/

Schwalbes are awful for trials. Plasticky is the perfect word to describe them! Definitely not a winter tyre, I had more faith in my Holly Roller when I ran that on the rear briefly.

Id definitely try hunt down a Swampthing or High Roller. My 40a High Roller had next to no tread left and still gripped like shit to a blanket in the wet. 
Rode Shipley Glen in all weathers and it was predictable which instilled confidence. 

Pad wise, I've never been able to fault TNN ADM's. Again, rode wet weather natural with lots of mud, grass, grit etc.. any pad is going to suffer in those circumstances but I knew what the brake would and wouldnt do. Just ride within the limits. 

The 40A compound really is good. It was actually better as a near slick tyre as it never picked up any mud so always gave brilliant tyre to ground contact.

Depending on the rim the ADM are better.

In your opinion. I've found Cousts just seem to work, no matter the rim or the conditions. But that's just my experience.

They didn't work on Trialtech SL rims but then again, no pad did. :D

Rockman blue in cnc worked so good on this rim for me with a medium grind when I ran a Magura.

Began with a 24'' Marino street, went over to various 24'' pure trials, got a 26'' pure trial and now am back to a 24'' Inspired street trial. :D
