Did an off road triathlon this past sept (paddle, mtb, trail run) and planning on doing it next year. The mtb section was 12 miles with the first 2 miles being on a fairly level paved highway before heading off onto fire roads with a few miles of singletrack. What tire would be the best combo esp considering that two miles are on pavement and a lot of time could be cut here? The off road part was not too demanding. I rode on Intense System 2's which are farely shallow lugged and they hooked up fine on the mostly hardpack. Cornering hook up would be important as there were several high speed turns. Any thoughts? Thanks.
