Pretty happy with the performance of the Vigilante last night on a very steep, rooty, loose, rocky, dusty track: http://www.strava.com/segments/10800417 — Morepork DH

It slipped a couple of times on the dust but I was heavy on the brakes and trying to turn on an off-camber so I can't really blame the tyre for that. I was also running my tyres and suspension a bit hard for a technical track like this. I'm definitely going back to have another go asap.

Which one is better for an all year round front tyre?
Shorty 2.3 maxtera exo or Magic mary ss ts?

Shorty, right?

Or riddler. One of them is supposed to be a decent all-rounder. Depending on your terrain.

I'd ride Shorty all round, but not Riddler. I dislike semi-slicks

Heels probably still on Vigis, he's like a vegan or crossfitter, he'll let you know before you ask...

he is on maxxis now, he gave away his man card!

I've only ridden the Shorty in dry conditions on the DH version. Was supremely impressed however. Can't wait to try it out in the wet if it ever rains.

They work really well in the wet.

The wether has been terrible here the last month or so, I've switched the dhf out to a shorty and the improvement is vast!

Needing some tire advice. Currently running ardent 27.5x2.4 front and rear and though I like them for dry weather, I'm noticing they're not handling mud and leaves too well especially steep slippery climbs. So I'm looking for a front rear combo that would work well for the loose stuff, I do ride on the road a little and I want to keep them into the summer so preferably something all around. I prefer WTB or Maxxis. What works for everyone else?

From what I've been hearing maxxis shorty sounds like what you need.

HR2 is a good allrounder with better mud shreding than Ardent, DHF and DHR2.
