I do a lot of downhill on loose sharp gravel, and the tires that came with the bike are Hutchinson Scorpions ( A mud tyre!!!) and they are getting chewed up before my eyes!!
So a good strong gravel tyre that can be used on most surfaces would be ideal so Please could anyone that has had some experience on this kind of sureface would be great :thumbsup:

Scorpions and Spiders are soft and wear fast.

The Barracuda seems to be harder and is deeper treaded with big edging tread and the 2.1 is quite large.

Yeah the OEM Barracuda 2.3 that came on my Reign X1 lasted two seasons on the back wheel, so that's pretty good wear.
