General information about our shipping
A good tyre and certainly better quality than previous standard tyre. Have used on pretty muddy/slippy terrain so far and while it collects mud and is less able to throw off excess muck than previous tyre, it is more solid in cornering and general grip. Previous tyre was a 1.95 width and this one, while only slightly wider, has definitely demonstrated the trade off in reduced speed versus improved traction. If traction and quality I your preference to speed in all conditions, then this is pretty good.
A good general cross country tyre, originally bought a pair a few of years ago for winter as the 2.3 wide tyres originally on my bike were starting to struggle in the mud, they got left on the following summer and they cope ok with everything so get used all year round . This is the third pair Ive purchased.
If you need an all-round XC tyre then look no further. Fire XCs offer good predictable cornering and excellent grip on pretty much any surface. Fast rolling on hardpack, clears well in mud and decent weight for a wired tyre too. This version (26x2.1) is not an especially large carcass by modern standards but is still my favourite all-time tyre, I've been mountain biking over 20 years and have tried many tyres but always come back to these.
Great all round tyre for everyday use with the usual spot on service and unbeatable price from Merlin!
Been using panaracer xc tyres for the last six years. Great tyres that have lasted and have done plenty of xc miles. Will recommend
very grippy off road, a little slow on road at moment, very well priced for a pair, look solid and pump up well.
This is truly a great tyre. I think all other manufacturers have been trying to copy this tyre for years. There are good copies, but this is the original and best. Merlin were excellent too. Not only the keenest price, but also speedy free delivery.
Fitting these tyres to my bike made such a difference to the handling, it was as though I were riding a different machine! Running them at 40 PSI, the increased grip was immediately noticeable and the road noise seemed to be less than with my previous tyres. They proved to be excellent in many different conditons such as mud, sand and loose soil. The deal with Merlin for buying a pair was very attractive. Highly recommended!
Good all weather tyres and dont break your wallet.
Great all purpose tyres, wear well and an excellent price.
So having got back in to cycling a mere 15 years after I last rode a mountain bike I bought a Kona One-20 off of eBay and started frequenting my local trails in search of the same buzz cycling gave me all those years ago. Being lucky enough to have Ashton Court & Leigh Woods right on my doorstep it wasn't long before I got that old buzz back and the addiction kicked in. After a couple of months of riding these trails in varying weather conditions I came to the conclusion that either my riding skills or the Maxxis Aspen tyres I had were crap and causing me multiple near death experiences every ride. Being a man I'm 100% right in thinking that in no way could my impeccable riding skills have diminished so the problem must be the tyres. This is where my old relationship with Merlin Cycles got rejuvenated and I swiftly made a purchase of this fantastic deal. These tyres are awesome, especially in comparison to what I had. I'm now shredding the trails once again with a massive smile on my bright red, sweaty face. Only downside is that these tyres haven't improved my fitness, but then again, they never promised to.
Fantastic set of tires! All the reviews that I've read about these tires were good. Very good price as well and excellent service from Merlin.
I bought these tires as mine were really old and I was riding more and more in thick mud. The alternatives were out of my budget. So I went for these. I am really impressed. Very grippy in muddy conditions and they seem to clear well too, although in really thick mud going up hill this didn't work so well. This would be expected though. All in all I'm really happy with my purchase and I'd recommend to anyone.
I've had a number of pairs of these, They work in just about any conditions, a great all-round tyre that does the job and lasts for a decent amount of time.
Your basic knobbly tyre. They don't last long for me as I use the bike on both fell and road but they are not that expensive when bought in pairs. Grip is good off road.
Excellent for the price. Work well except in the muddiest conditions
Great service from Merlin. Early indications are that this is an excellent all-round tyre. Two rides on mud/rock/grass in the Lake District gave excellent grip, though I did get one soft puncture. Great VFM for the pair, can't beat the price anywhere on the web.
great pair of tyres, great price, rapid delivery. Great service from team Merlin
Great price exellent delivery time(nextday) tyers look great, still to try them out yet but cant fault the service. A+
