Guys some questions:
--how is the addix soft magic mary compared to the trailstar?
--Also, which is a better allrounder tyre: magic mary soft or dhf maxterra?
--better allrounder rear tyre: aggressor or nobby nic?
I find my Aggressor just okay as a winter tear tire. It rolls alright but can clog up a bit on softer trail surfaces, and it’s dual compound so, while it wears well, it can be a bit exciting on wet roots.
On my other bike, I have a dual compound High Roller 2. I was expecting it to be an anchor but it rolls surprisingly well, not noticeably worse than the Aggressor. The open tread pattern clears mud/slop much better. It’s the same rubber compound as the Aggressor so it isn’t much better on wet roots and rocks. I’d try the softer 3C version, but I don’t know how much slower it would be, and those thin knobs might wear quickly.
