Question: what tire do you like for natural trials?


- Maxxis CC
- Tryall Sticky
- Luna
- other
- I want to vote in this thread but don't know anything about trials
------------------------------------------------------------------------

yea, I've been using my CC for a while now and really like it, but the
tryall sticky looks really nice for natural trials, and then the monty
2.7" tire looks really nice and big and it sais it's soft rubber like
the CC. I want a grippy tire as much as or more than the CC, and
bouncy.

so yeah, what does everyone who does natural trials or plain normal
trials like?

ps. I hate the luna, so don't say that I should get that please.

I voted for the cc, but I've never tried anything else. Tell me what you
get, and how you like it. Sorry for the no-help

I love my CC!!!

Even though most of the knobs have been worn down, it still has plenty
of life and grip left. During any weather, from below freezing, to
100s, it has never failed me.

There are plenty of time the tire has saved me form how well it sticks
to what I am jumping on. Barely landing on a edge and having the tire
grip so well, has saved me form a lot of wrecks, and allowed me to land
on some really odd obstacle, where some other tire may not be able to
grip to enough.

I like it because it came on my KH, and I figure he knows what he's
doing.

I don't know, but everytime I try one it seems really ongrippy and less
nice to use than my CC. I've heard it lasts longer though.

The luna is very slippery because it is harder rubber, both the try-all
and cc have softer rubber. I voted for the try-all though because the
tread pattern is a bit more agressive. Although the CC has more tread
over the tire, the try-all is much sharper and digs in more whereas the
cc has to be at a very very low pressure to really conform to uneven
areas. This would help alot on things such as angled rocks and thing
that have moss and such on them. I still love my luna and its super
sidewalls but for natural tryalls go for the TRY-ALL.
