Finished building the lovely modern Klein but got some crap Tioga Terra Firma steel beaded tyres on there at the moment and want to save some weight (and get more grip) by changing for a decent folding tyre that isn't too expensive.

I've read that Maxxis Ignitors are decent tyres and nice and light? Any have any other recommendations? I only ever do singletrack, so don't need any bonkers heavy DH tyres.

Cheers,

James.

Maxxis Crossmark. Brilliant XC tyres and really light depending on what guise you get them in.
