Top 5 Tyres for Autumn Mountain Biking

We’ve just done a Buyers Guide to Autumn MTB tyres so we thought we’d also do an accompanying little blog about some specific tyre models that we think are great picks for this time of year.

Continental Trail King - agreat Autumn all-rounder

Continental Trail King – a great Autumn all-rounder

Continental Trail King ProTection

27.5″ in 2.2 or 2.4
29″ in 2.2
Nutshell: An excellent Autumnal all-rounder. Gappy tread. Nice shoulders. ProTection carcass. Fancy Black Chilli compound. Good for mixed, moist terrain.

Schwalbe Hans Dampf - a modern classic

Schwalbe Hans Dampf – a modern classic

Schwalbe Hans Dampf

26″ in 2.35
27.5″ in 2.35
29″ in 2.35
Nutshell: A relatively new design but one that’s already an accepted classic for aggressive trail riders and enduro racers. Likes to go very fast downhill.

Maxxis Beaver - a good choice if you're not after a sticky tyre

Maxxis Beaver – a good choice if you’re not after a sticky tyre

Maxxis Beaver

29″ in 2.0
Nutshell: The Beaver will already be in most 29er riders rubber shed. If you roll on big wheels and do serious mileage then you need a Beaver in your life.

Panaracer Rampage - another good choice if you don't want a soft tyre

Panaracer Rampage – another good choice if you don’t want a soft tyre

Panaracer Rampage

26″ in 2.1 or 2.35
Nutshell: Like 26in wheels themselves, Panaracer almost feel like they’ve been forgotten about. But they have some great all-rounder tyres in their range. The Rampage is a fast-rolling runner with extra beef in the shoulders when you need it.

Vredestein Black Panther - a cult choice for those in the know

Vredestein Black Panther – a cult choice for those in the know

Vredestein Black Panther

26″ in 2.35
Nutshell: Obscure? Yep. From a “roadie” brand? Yep. The Black Panther is the enduro racer’s secret. Used on the rear it’s a fast, tough and capable tyre for loose-over-firm terrain. Bargain price too.
