Tires are the only connecting link between the rider and the terrain, thus they are primarily responsible for the performance of the bike. The demands we place on modern tires are high, we aim for good rolling performance, whilst still maintaining lots of grip and high puncture protection. Tire choice is always a question of faith and is strongly influenced by regional differences. We tested 6 of the current most popular trail and touring tires, both under full laboratory conditions and out on the trail! Our results can be found in the next issue #011 of ENDURO.
Which tires have participated at our tire test, and which one convinced most the laboratory, as well as at the practical test will be published in issue #011 of ENDURO.
