Mud tyres though (which to be fair, at the moment the ground is generally muddy)
(they're 15/20 quid at on-one.co.uk)

XC Pro Mud are the same width 1.8 width.

I tried Schwalbe Blackjack 1.8 three years ago when desperate for a narrow rear tyre for a winter ride. Not aggressive but roll well, fairly heavy but cheap. They worked really well except in extreme mud. I've now got all my rides on these though the latest I've bought are 1.9s s.I think Schwalbe have dropped the narrower ones. Now running the 1.8s on the back and 1.9s front.

keep the suggestions coming, although it looks like I might be getting some of the Kenda Klimax tyres for use over the summer.

I'd still like to find some more of the Geax Barro Mud though for winter, I loved those tyres!

Don't Conti still make the Cross-Country tyre in 1.7 or 1.9??

Cross country is pretty much dropped from the lineup :( wire only now but available in tidy tires for kids up to bike bikes.

Oops tiny 16/20/24" size and the 26" size

I liked them tyres, I think they have been replaced by others in the range like x-king. I've moved to schwalbe now.

Panaracers for me are great in 1.8. I had a set once that were 400g per tyre.
