Anybody have opinions and experience on what tire works well on frozen dirt that is bumpy and choppy as heck from all the frozen tracks from bikes, hikers, critters and what not? Very little snow or ice involved yet.....maybe a wiff or two here and there....but the trails are now frozen solid and we are allowed to ride on them without destroying anything.

thanks

That describes my terrain for about 3 months a year (except this year, where the fozen white stuff is accumulating in great abundance). In my experience, anything works well on that -- it's a grippy a surface as there is. Knobs are really irrelevant -- kind of like on granite -- as they don't bit into the ground. What you want is the ground to bite into the tire, that's when things hook up the best. Nanoraptors have worked well for me.

high volume, low psi!!

i agree with PeT that knobs become irrelavent, but for me the nano's just don't have the volume. i'm liking my rampages right now...

My Mythos XC IIs have been pretty good in this stuff so far, but definitely run them lower pressure than usual. They get a bit sketchy on the ice, but what doesn't?

The nice thing about it is, it's FAST.

Sounds like a good application for the WeirWolf Low Tread. Biggest volume tire we have going, should be grippy enough for the conditions, and has the best chance of floating on top of whatever snow you do get.
