Tan wall / grey wall 26 tyres


Recommended Posts

Anyone know of some decent 26" tyres that come in tan wall? I've seen Vittoria also do grey wall but seemingly only have 2.1 options.


It's for a hex, so a mix of street and trials. Currently on 2.4 holy rollers. Ideally don't want to go narrow as like the rear wheel stability.

I haven't on the trials bike. Have run Nobby Nics on the MTB in the past, where it's a decent all-round tyre if you don't go too extreme. Unfortunately it only comes in 26x2.4 classic skin (tan wall) with their 'Speedgrip' compound, which usually goes only in the back on a regular MTB, or on the front when you're running a speedy XC machine. So should be pretty fast rolling, durable and hard wearing, but not exceptionally grippy, especially when it's wet. It's comparable to Maxxis Maxxspeed (on a Maxxis Ikon), and better than Maxxis Dual (on a Maxxis Crossmark 2, which sucks in the wet), and the Nobby Nic has bigger knobs than both. Quality 26" tyre selection is getting thinner and thinner unfortunately, even black ones.
