I’m thinking of trying out a different tire set-up on my all-mountain/enduro bike, which is a current Bronson CC V3 with a top spec build, running Reserve 30 rims.
I’m currently running a 2.5 DHF Max Terra EXO front and a 2.3 Aggressor DC EXO. These have (seemed to) serve me well on my local NY/NJ/CT terrain which consists of hard, dust over hard, some loose, bunch of chunky rock mixed in a bit with a decent amount of steep. Typical New England terrain. There are also a handful of bike parks days mixed in there.
My current tires keep the bike feeling lively and mostly just damn fine, but that vague spot in the DHF may be throwing me off, or my cornering technique just sucks. I feel like a different front tire may be much more confidence inspiring. I also feel like I’d appreciate a touch more volume out back, a 2.4 Aggressor would be perfect if they made it.
So, how does the DHRII front and rear compare to the go-to DHF/Aggressor? I feel like the bike may feel a bit more lively having the 2.4 DHRII up front vs the 2.5 DHF, but will the rear DHRII add a bunch of rolling resistance? How much rolling resistance does the DHRII DC add vs Aggressor DC?
What about going DHF front and Dissector rear? It seems like the Dissector gives up minimal rolling resistance to the Aggressor, but gains volume
