Surely the mythical White Onza Octopus would be the ideal tyre, bit draggy everywhere else. :D

I have found my conti verticals to cope quite well with Suffolks roots. But its more about how you tackle the root than the tyre.

Maxxis Medusa - great mud/rooty tyre and relative low profile makes them a good summer all rounder as well. ;)

Lol you are right about the weather, but seriously because they have a really low profile they roll really well. I'be been riding them on dusty trails and they are as good as any xc tyre

I've got some medusa's but have only ridden them in the dry once and yeah they were okay but not as good as the high rollers I normally use on that bike. They were good as I honked my way up a rocky climb on my SS though. The didnt slip at all even on some of the slighly damp rocks. Soft rubber compound I guess!!!

Eh? :shock:
They're great in winter mud and soft conditions, but slide all over the place on roots, and are very slow everywhere...
