Rubena V78 Neptune Tire

2/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $18.99

Product Description

Rubena’s best inexpensive tire for soft conditions or the classic “dust over crust” situations. Meaty, aggressive knobs are built to grab the dirt and create a stable platform on the singletrack and in the corners. This is a great tire for dryer environments with dusty or loamy features.

Strengths:    Loads of grip no matter the conditions, in the same league as far more expensive tires.

Weaknesses:    Heavy, lots of rolling resistance and the soft compound will have knobs ripped off the rear on stony fire roads.

Bottom Line:   
These tires came standard on my Rockrider, although they are generally hard wearing the soft knobs were getting ripped off the rear on fire roads at my local forest. Literally a couple of rides on the and the tire was no more good, I replaced with a harder compound Kenda 850 but this had nowhere near as much grip in the dirt in any conditions as the Neptune.

I have loads of tires and grip wise they compare well to Maxxis Beaver in general with a bit better rolling resistance but a lot ore weight. Not a race tire as a result of the weight.
