Aggressive trail riding and all-mountain adventures are the vogue in mountain biking right now, and something that cannot be avoided where both are concerned is mud, lots of it.
The Trailraker is probably the most impressive of any tyre in this publication simply for its ridiculous amount of grip in the worst of trail conditions. Anyone who hasn’t tried a set of these on their bike really should do so to find out just what we mean. One thing these don’t do so well is roll on flat ground, they really are noticeably slow, but when you are tearing through puddles, ripping apart muddy turns and flying across all sorts of cambers you won’t be worried about that. Featuring Panaracer’s Combo Compound rubber these are also sure to last you throughout even the longest of UK winters. We recommend going for the UST option for increased casing strength and rigidity.
PRICE:UST £42.99, Standard folding £34.99
