Maxxis SHORTY 29 x 2.4 F / Maxxis Forekaster R

I'm thinking about the following combo:

Front: Maxxis Shorty 2.4
Rear: Maxxis Forekaster 2.35

November till March.
  • Unmaintained hiking trails
  • 90% of the trail is wet and soft soil with leafs and roots
  • 10% of the trail is covered in slippery mud

What's your opinion?
- Maybe some other combo will be better?

  • Specialzied chisel
  • RIM front: 30mm IW
  • RIM rear: 27mm IW

Ran the same combo in 27.5 and it's good in soft conditions and quite useable otherwise.

The Shorty is the grippiest tire Maxxis makes.👍. I’ve never tried a Forekaster.
