Really impressed with grip and feel on different terrain
Great tire, very grippy.
I have two rides in with this tire and now I'm wondering why I slid around on XC tires so long! Came pretty much as advertised. Lighter than posted on the Merlin site, but heavier than the manufacturer's site. That said...the weight is worth it. Just incredible grip and I didn't notice it being as draggy as I thought it would be. I've certainly felt worse. Have this on front paired with a Nobby Nic in the back and I'm very pleased.
Magic Marys are fantastic. I tried them out on the front of one bike and have now put it on the front of all my bikes. They are super grippy and give me confidence that the front end will hold.
Best mtb tyre out there, if you get a puncture running one of these you`re very unlucky
I love this tire in the decomposed granite that we have in Colorado. It hooks up to anything. There might be a bit of rolling resistance but well worth it when bombing down a hill full of gnar. It also grabbed everything thrown at it in Moab. Never going back to Maaxis.
Great front tyre for all year riding
A new purchase not having had a magic Mary before. So far so good in mud, over gravel and grass. Sidewall lugs look just right for aggressive front tyre requirements
Great in 1" deep winter mud. Clears well. Draggy on the road but who cares?
I like it more than MDH, good traction, low rolling resistance, no complaints
Great Tyres in the wet and the dry, nice firm sidewall so you can run lower pressure and avoid the sidewall folding on the harsher impacts
Great front tire for mixed conditions
The best tires out there. Excellent tread for a wide variety of conditions, ranging from wet to dry, and everything in-between. Obviously not the best rolling ever, but you aren't buying these for that. For what they are, they pedal quite well and I run them front and rear on my enduro rig. Great traction in all conditions, especially shining in steep/loose/wet. Schwalbe for life.
Awesome tyre! Super grippy
Had just put this tyre on before doing 85 km ole ghost trail west coast of S.I NZ, it performed outstanding, it grippped on all types of terrain superbly gave me more confidence which has been lacking with other tyres of late
Bought fpr gloopy muddy conditions. All good so far, confidence inspiring in the corners
I've been riding Magic Marys for two years now and this new compound is just as good, if not better. Can't say anything bad about them.
Great tyre for front winter use loads of confidence inspiring grip when pushing hard. The new Addix compound seems to work well but haven't had it long enough to comment on its durability. Easy fitting with tube bit more rolling resistance than the summer Racing Ralph that it replaced but considering the amount of grip you get its worth the extra effort.
Bought this as a winter front tyre. Think it will stay on all year though. Very confidence inspiring over wet roots and everywhere else. Think it makes a perfect front tyre.
Excellent all rounder - now even grippier and better wearing than before!
I've only done two rides since fitting this tyre to the front both in unusually dry conditions mostly on compacted gravel trail and single track with tree roots, and smallish often polished rocks with dry mud. So not particularly demanding conditions. However I have been more than satisfied with the grip available I really felt confident about the front end it felt like the grip would go on forever. I had a Slaughter on the rear and the bike really seemed to fly on the combination I did not feel that I was being held back by big tread of the Magic Mary on the front. I'm not looking forward to the muddy conditions to come this winter but I do look forward to trying them with this tyre. On the basis of my ride so far I would definitely recommend them.
