 Produced by Panaracer, Interloc Racing Design (IRD) has brought the time-tested Fire XC Pro 2.1 to the 29" and 650B formats. The Fire has long been one the better most conditions tires and wildly popular among riders. Now in both 29 x 2.1 and 650B x 2.1 IRD has brought it to the the bigger wheels. There are no basic changes in the tread design from the 26" versions. You can see a slight difference between the 29er and "B" tires as the former has a higher volume casing while the tread width remains basically the same. The 29er tread spacing is a bit more open laterally than the "B" and does not wrap down the sidewalls as far, which is what makes the "B's" edge tread taller.

Will be riding these soon.

Conti news - Sea Otter PDF Print E-mail

Continental tires has made great progress on the mtb market in the past few seasons with a combination on new, highly effective tread designs and use of their Black Chili rubber compound.

 Black Chili  brings the properties we are all looking for--faster, grippier, longer wearing--to a single compound through the use of nano technology. Carbon black, used to make rubber "tough" and wear well, has been ground to a very fine and consistent size (the nano tech), which allows better distribution in and bond with the rubber. The small size and shape makes the rubber more elastic with less shearing. The elasticity increase the grip while decreasing rolling resistance. Improved shearing extends tread life. Sounds impossible, but you can feel it on the trail and Black Chili has become the rubber of choice among many riders.

 How to know that a Conti tire uses Black Chili is a bigger issue. Nowhere on the tire itself is there a BC label. The rubber looks and feels no different than non-BC tires. According to Brett Hahn, Continental brand manager, there is one sure way to know: the big "Handmade in Germany" label on the sidewall. Black Chili is produced and used only in Conti's own factory in Germany.

 Because of the home factory exclusive of BC expanding its use to other models is limited by the plant's capacity. The long term plan is to bring the popular 29 inch tire production "home" and use Black Chili. The timeline is unclear.

 In the meantime, look for 29er versions of the Trail King (nee Rubber Queen) in 2.2 and 2.4" widths by this fall. These tire may also be, a first for Conti, tubeless ready. No Black Chili yet, though. I am happy to see the Trail King coming as it may be the best  all-round mtb tire ever from Continental.

Aggressive 29ers: WTB Kodiak and Dissent PDF Print E-mail

WTB Dissent and Kodiak 29 x 2.5
 Big, tough, aggressive. The WTB Dissent and Kodiak 29 x 2.5 FR/DH tires are the first of a new category of tires for the big wheels. Both produced by WTB, the Kodiak is a Niner Bikes exclusive. These are the largest overall 29er tires yet available, though limitations in manufacturing equipment means the casing volume is not  as great as some other small-tread models.
 
I have mounted and measured both of the new tires on my usual control 24mm wide rim and the 36mm wide Salsa Gordo. The narrower rim gives both tires distinctly rounder profiles, especially noticeable with the Kodiak. Its tread width increased while the Dissent tread measured the same. More telling are the widest point radius increase of both tires. This affects frame clearances as well. The casing width and slight casing height increase of each tire when mounted on the wider Gordo also pushes the air volume.

Kenda King of Traction 26 x 2.10Kenda's mud/soft surface tire from the John Tomac collection The King of Traction 26 x 2.10 delivers on its name--in the right conditions. Available in 1.80, 2.10 and 2.35 widths, the mid size is the most versatile. Good air volume while still being narrow enough to punch through the surface slop to find solid ground underneath. The tall tread--especially on the edges-- creates a flat-top profile with plenty of grip for control. I found the larger 2.35 KOT with its even taller tread to be truly scary on harder wet terrain when mounted on narrowish rims (24mm). This is not an issue with the 2.10 version. The dual compound rubber provides reasonable grip on roots and rocks but this tire is at its best when the going gets wet, deep and sloppy.

 Full specs here.

Changes for the New Year PDF Print E-mail

Ancient LakeAfter 30 years on the wet side of Oregon mtbtires.com has relocated its World Headquarters to the dry side in North Central Washington. New trails, new soils, new challenges. I still hope to travel and be able to use my beloved mud tires on the winter trails where I honed my riding skills. Mainly, I will be dealing with more rocks and sand. Still plenty of summer hardpack and lots of long mountain trails. I grew up in NCW and love the high desert and ponderosa pine forests.

Winter riding is more limited because of snow but in this mild year I have made several trips into the Columbia Basin to explore the Ancient Lake area, which was new to me. A fun time with near-perfect trail conditions. Recent rains firmed up the ground without making it mucky. Great traction for the steep pitches, which would be very difficult if loose. The underlying geology is volcanic. Basalt is everywhere. Loose fist sized and larger rocks mixed with knife-edged embedded rock to keep you on your toes as you twitch through the sage brush. Wonderful fun!
