My favorite racing tire (dry conditions) is the Bontrager Super X. I also like the Python Lite, but not quite as much. I haven't tried the new generation stuff.800-lb-gorilla said:Hi all.
I recently ordered a set of UST Racing Ralph 2.1's, and found out they're back-ordered in Canada, with no guess as to their arrival.
What would be your next choice for racing mostly dry, twisty, NE-type conditions, 145lb rider on a Fuel, running DT4.1d/Eclipse tubeless? Priority, of course, on rolling resistance. Puncture resistance and low weight would also be nice, but these are race tires. Price/durability aren't huge issues.
My thoughts (in order) would be:
Python Next Gen UST Tubeless Light
Kenda Karma UST Tubeless
Conti Explorer UST Front/Twister UST rear
Bontrager Super X tubeless or tubeless-ready
Maxxis Ignitor or Larsen TT UST
Michelin XCR Dry UST
Thanks for any suggestions.
