what size/brand of tires is everyone riding this year? and what pressure are you running for freeride, or DH, or trail.

ive got Maxxis 2.5 DH Minions F and R on my Haro 8.3. running them at around 40 for the trails and FR. when im doing the gravity runs gotta lower it to round 25-30 for the extra stick. with the super heavy/strong sidewalls i can ride it that low and get no pinchflats or anything. crazy heavy tho, 1300g a piece!

i have a kenda blue groove up front and a kenda nevegal in the rear. i run at a pretty high pressure all the time to prevent pinch falts.

some Intense, some Maxxis, some Kenda :)

I use couple of sets (for different conditions here in good ol' Europe ;))

  • for winter riding (snow etc.) rode Maxxis Wet Scream 2.2 DH MaxxPro 60d
  • during early spring/late summer used Intense Intruder 2.5 DH FRO SR front and just bought new Kenda Nevgal 2.5 DH Stick-E Tomac
  • for summer/dry I used either Maxxis Minions 2.5 DH 42ST or High Rollers 40a SR last year, but...
  • ...for this season however will be on Kenda Blue Groove / Nevgal 2.5 DH Stick-E Tomac however

quick note on pressure - although I often ride very rocky terrain, never got flats on either Intense or Maxxis even running them on 0.9-1.2 bar front and some 1.2-1.4 rear.

On the gemini: 2.5 high roller(r)/mobster(f) in 60a compound. Probably 35-40psi I'll switch off to 2.3 arrow mud x's for the wet days.

On the prophet: 2.3 hutchison spyders, 2.35 60a high rollers when the spyders wear out, possibly a fast rolling tire like 2.3 high roller semi slick/ schwalbe racing ralph in the fall when everything is packed frozen.

michelin 2.8 front and intense 909, sorta the same pattern, but i think the michelin hooks up better. i run them at about 25-30 and they work great with no flats. im running in soft, rocky, and sometimes hardpack, basic socal weather.
