i really like the AKAs. seem to roll well and grip like velcro for me. i don't do much riding in wet/mud though.gregnash said:MeltingFeathers ..... How are the AKAs doing? And what do you mean by "portly"?
Definitely might have to look into these as a light/race tire.
Haven't put them on yet... never used the Ignitors so dunno how they compare. I've been running Specialized Captain back and Rampage front. The Ikons tread is way more shallow...hope they wear ok. These are going on my SS.LyNx said:How's that tread patern looking for you Ronnie? How's it compare to the Ignitors and what ever else you have and run? Thinking of picking up some new tyres and the EXO sidewall seems to be dealing with any sidewall issues there were before, so might go back to Crossmarks or the Ikon as a rear for dry weather.
LOL.... no portly is my Halo ChoirMasters which are advertised at 835g... I am sure they weigh quite a bit more as they are steel bead! Thinking once I try these for a while I will go with either the IKON/AKA or Ignitor in the rear. I am sure that pushing 835+g on each wheel on a steel 29er will be quite fun :madman:meltingfeather said:i really like the AKAs. seem to roll well and grip like velcro for me. i don't do much riding in wet/mud though.
by portly i mean ~700g
how are the icons wearing after 600 miles?? I get annoyed with wear items that are expensive (schwalbe) so hopefully these will be the answer.dubdryver said:I have about 600mi on my Ikons (front/rear combo) and they work great for everything I have rode on.
