these were £8.75 each in Decathlon when I last looked (6 months ago?) - I used them - very happy with them on the rear at least - didn't use one as a front.

I know of people who have ridden and rated them in the past. I currently use the Michelin XC-AT and have just had my 1st puncture since fitting them in June, only downside is the AT's are a rounded profile and don't inspire confidence when cornering.

For the money they are a good tyre.
