2012 Dirt 100: Bontrager XR Mud
Whilst these tyres might have the word ‘mud’ in their name we think they’re actually a far better 50/50 trail tyre than they are a specific mud tyre.
If it’s really shitty they lose out to the Trailraker for out and out grip, but they’ll still cut through the brown stuff far better than a regular trail tyre, and unlike the Trailraker they’ll grip on other surfaces too. They’ll also carry speed even when the ground is rock hard. If we had to stick to one set of tyres for UK trail use then a set like this would probably be the ones. They might not excel in any specific conditions, but they do excel in mixed conditions and that’s what we normally seem to be faced with.
