The plural of a South African is South Africans, not "South African's". Fix your headline.

Love the Maxxis range of tyres. Rush Sport also a pleasure to deal with. Keep it up guys!

Boerklong, Jan 15 2018 09:13

Pretty much the only brand I've ever used

Will  there be  a big difference between the ( old faithful ) Ikon and the new Aspen ?

Its nice to have choice, but I find myself a little overwhelmed by such a wide range.

 

On my Camber, I am not sure if I want Agressors, Ardents, Forekaster, Highrollers or Minions (DHF or R)

And then, which to put on the front of back ?

It's easier to just stick with the Specialized Ground Control and Purgatory. I quite liked that combo, but I want to try something new for the sake of it.

Great tyres and a great supplier!

Aspens apparently rolls a bit faster, and are lighter if I have it right. The Aspen also have a lower profile center tread than the Ikon, but more aggressive side knobs. Have been riding Ikon as a marathon tyre, but I am very keen to give this tyre a go - looks promising.

Still nothing in 2.6 or bigger thats not for the #enduro boys. Would love me an ikon 2.6 but nowhere to be found locally.

I'm pretty sure that Maxxis don't make an Ikon in 2.6. What you're looking for an a Rekon.

They actually have a 2.8" Rekon and Ikon... Maxxis do not make a 2.6 Ikon. I actaully have both in stock, just in storage with relocation at the moment. If you still need at the begining if Feb please PM me and I can get some to you.

You wrong the correct plural is Seff Effricans

Traveler, Jan 21 2018 09:27

Would love to fit a 27.5 x 2.6 combo, Forekaster and Rekon.

XCO/Marathon - Aspen front and rear? How is the performance in wet weather? Currently running Forekaster front, Ardent Race rear, love the grip but I need to roll/climb a bit faster.
Racing Ralph before this, fast but traction is a problem now in winter.

I would go Aspen rear, Ardent Race front. Can't imagine an Aspen would do too well on the front in the wet weather. I've used Ardent Race (29x2.35) on the front in all weather with alot of success - good volume, nice side knobs for grip, rolls fast.
