Strengths:    Traction and versatile in a wide variety of terrain.

Weaknesses:    None for me.

Bottom Line:   
2.3 size used on a Cannondale Prophet conversion. Works awesome just like the 26" size. Some complain that they roll slower than some other tires. Well, Duh! They are not racing tires. The do excel at their intended role- All Conditions traction. If your bag is to trade off some traction for less rolling resistance, try a different tire.

Strengths:    light weight 641gr 644gr for my two tires,great traction,all around nice tire

Weaknesses:    120 tpi sidewall

Bottom Line:   
I have been using Nevegal 26" tires with great result for a long time. I've had great results with both DTC,Sticky(wares fast) ,in both 2.1 and 2.35 .These tire I would rate 4-5 stars. Not so great with th e 1.95 as the 120 tpi sidewalls puntured easily. On my first ride after converting my Ibis Mojo SL to 650b-2.1, I puntured the sidewall with a big enough hole to not reseal with Stans. Will try my trick of sealing the sidewall with patch of shoe goo, both inside the tire and outside. This tire needs the 60 tpi sidewall

Kenda honey badger vs nevegal

I am about to order some 29x2.2 tires and I have it narrowed down to these two. I'm going to run the same tire front and rear. Currently on a set of bontrager 29-1's and I absolutely hate them. My trails are a combo of rocks, roots, light mud, loose dirt, and of course dry hard pack. The bontrager ... Read More »

Older Nevegal hard and dried out?

My trail bike is a Specialized Hardrock with a Fox 120 coil fork and a 2.1 Nevegal out front. I weigh 160 and run the tires at 20 psi with tubes, i never hit the rims or pinch flat. From what I've read this tire is supposed to have crazy grip but its just not cutting it for me. I ride primarily dry, ... Read More »

Would Front Nevegal 2.1 Rear Racing Ralph 2.2 be a good combo?

I have been mountain biking for about a year and have a Yeti 575 Full Suspension bike. The bike came with a Front Specialized Captain 2.0 and Maxxis Advantage 2.1 Rear combo and I hated it. I wrecked more times in one trip out than I had ever before. I swapped to Front Nevagal and Rear Nevegal 2. ... Read More »
