Old time poster re-emerging here. I need new tires for my Reign and these new Addix compounds from Schwalbe have me intrigued.
Looking for input from people who have ridden them in local conditions though.
I'm thinking I'd try Magic Mary front in the Ultra Soft Addix Compound, undecided on best rear tire to pair it with though.
The tires they'd be replacing are WTB Viligant front and Trail Boss rear, overall I was happy with this combo but game to try something a little more grippy, especially for winter conditions.
The bike originally came with Hans Dampf's front and rear which were awful but I attribute that to the cheap OEM compound and thin casings, so willing to give Schwable another try if these other compounds are decent.
Back in the 26" days I rode nothing but Maxxis DHFs front+rear in the 3C compound which I also liked, but wasn't doing much climbing then.
Anyways, hoping you guys have some input on what to buy. A set of tires lasts me a year these days (need to ride more!) so not too practical to experiment.
