hey all

ive got some intense dh 2.4 comp 60 tyres on my bike atm, and tbh i know nothing about them (they came with the bike) so i thought i would come ask you fellas a few things :p

seeing as i really cant be arsed taking my tyres off and weighing them individually, i was wondering if any of you guys could tell me if this is considered a "heavy" tyre by most standards?

also, im gonna be needing some new tyres soon enough. Could you recommend any 2.5 tyres that dont weigh masses and masses?

cheers :D

For what conditions?
Riding DH, AM, XC, DJ?

FWIW most "DH" tires are 1000+g, so you *can* find lighter tires, if you're not riding DH. From what I've heard, Intense tires are heavy even by DH standards (some go over 1500g)

For most "AM" riding you might be fine with 2.3"-2.5" tires in the 800g range.
Kenda Nevegal/Blue Groove 2.35, 2.5
Schwalbe Big Betty 2.4?
Nokian Gazza/NBX Dual 2.5
Specialized Enduro D2 2.4?
Maxxis Minion F/R and High Roller 2.35 single ply (not big but popular with the AM crowd)
there are more I can't recall right now.

the maxxis minion tyres i found are single ply, so im assuming they will weigh a touch less than the dual ply ones, hopefully around 1000grams if im lucky?
