#!markdown I recently did the super d out at bootleg canyon NV. Converted a '14 camber to a 27.5+ and added a boosted 130mm fox 34. Ended up running the shwalbe nobbie nicks 2.8 evo trailstar snakeskin(870g each) at 17/19 on 34mm id carbon wheels. I'm 165, pedal hard, corner ok, and choose good lines. It was a great set for the race! At my weight and with the unforgiving nature of the area, the added pressure was the key to avoid flats and tire squirm under hard cornering and pedaling. The larger tires gave incredible grip on the loose corners I've had to slow down on on previous standard tire set ups. Slightly slower pedaling, much faster cornering, overall had a very fast time!
