A few used these yesterday over Thorndon, seem to work well!, I need to sort some out for myself as the Nobby Nics aren't cutting it in the mud! P.S Mountain Kings also seem a good choice!

Had a few pairs of mountain kings 2.2 racesport tubeless ready on my extinct 26. They have been very good for all around, mixed conditions but never for Epping mud. Yesterday I had Rocket Rons 2.25 (rear a bit worn out) and not the best choice.
Bontrager almost on the way.

I rode most of Danbury on some bontranger mud x 2.0 on Sunday no issues what so ever. As you've had them before and said they're good. Why not just get the same but in 29 ?

It doesn't matter what you ride

I ran the Maxxis Medusa last year and that was excellent at all round grip, but wore out incredibly quickly, this year I'm running the Maxxis Beaver, will report back after a few more miles, but it was the perfect tyre for the TVT Cool Challenge a couple of weekends ago for the very mixed conditions.

Popped a dirty dan on the front of the demo at porc and it made a big difference to how confident you could be turning in on what is some pretty sloppy stuff
Had a muddy Mary on the back

Just bought them now.

One of the reasons I was asking is same tyres on 29" performance is worse. Heard that on the continental X Kings for example

I had to stick a tube in it overnight and rub it in soapy water, so I only had to make one side stick
