Schwalbe Dirty Dan Evo LiteSkin Folding Tyre - 26"
For deep, muddy terrain! Dan is the choice when the ground is gummy. Tall blocks bite into soft and loose terrain. Large gaps provide the necessary self-cleaning and braking traction.

Bought for some winter riding on wet and muddy trails and they performed way beyond expectations! No slip and slide, great traction and gave huge confidence when riding on super skippy clay, wet, horrible truly British Winter trails! Stayed upright all the way round which I definitely didnt expect!
The tire is in good order in the forests, a little worse with the resistance of rolling on asphalt but on melting snow did not cause any unpleasant surprise.
Absolutely top notch service from Merlin. Fastest delivery I've known. It takes longer to walk to my LBS than receive a parcel from these guys! The tyre in question however....It performs pretty well in the mud, roots and rocks of my local trail. It's light, rolls well and was a doddle to fit. It's not very tough though, certainly not tough enough to be tubeless. 1st ride out and it had punctured within 200 meters of leaving the road, bad enough to require a boot. Ended up having to install a tube.
I've been out in some VERY muddy November conditions in the Chilterns with these, and they are excellent. They cut reassuringly through deep mud, and keep me moving forwards where my Summer tyres (Nobby Nic 2.2's) would just spin helplessly. Fitting hint: I really struggled to get a seal on my hubs, because the lip of the tyre needs to fit snuggly into the outer edge of the hubs. Top tip: I'd been trying to inflate using a track pump, and having no joy at all. After almost giving up (and having wasted a lot of Stans sealant) I then used a CO2 cylinder, and it did the job in seconds; straight up, no mess, and they've been perfect ever since.
This tyre does exactly what it was designed for, I got these for the winter mud as my racing Ralph rocket Ron combo was just starting to clog up in the worsening conditions. As soon as I got on the mud I could feel the immense grip being provided by the dirty dans, straight up a pretty steep incline, I'm able to lay down full power with no slipping at all. Riding through extended boggy sections of wet mud is also no issue, gripping all the way and clearing out without issue. I highly recommend these tyres for wet muddy conditions, you won't be disappointed
Good deal. Perfect tansaction. The item arrived much faster than expected. I will buy again. Many thanks.
