Mr HouldenTop tier tyre, grips to anything and has performed really well so far on some gnarly off piste.
AJPSuper grippy in all but smooth hardpack. Awesome tyres for my recent alps trip.
NikhrGreat tyre, loads of grip in a wide range of conditions
FrancesFantastic AM front tryres, amazing grip, easy to set. It has transformed my giant. My tyre was just less than 1.1 Kg and the Merlin price was phenomenal!
Purchased the Magic Mary's Super Gravity tyre.
I have ridden these on road, sloppy muddy forests, rocky descents, down stair sets, across fields.
Fair to say at the moment, I won't even look elsewhere now. I've ridden Maxxis, Conti's and these have been my favorites for sticking to the trails giving me confidence to push myself fast without fear of these letting me down, being able to corner fast and close to the ground.
People who have said these don't roll very well.... I disagree. They are slightly on the heavy side that's the only downfall for me.
MenziesExtremely grippy tyre almost feels like I am cheating
Nige HGreat grip and increased confidence particularly on sketchy wet rock - plenty of that this winter! Took a few blasts with the compressor to get it to sit straight on my Hopes. Great price and quick delivery from the guys at Merlin as always
LeeI was after some winter tyres and the price of these was too good to pass. After hearing all the good reviews of the Magic I thought I'd give them a go. Very grippy tyre perfect for the trail centre.
SimpsonGreat tyre, great grip, just right for the muddy months!
RootmasterOnly used on the front so far but may try on the back as well sometime. Considering the amount of grip and confidence that this tyre gives it rolls pretty well as a front tyre. MM front and RR back is a good fast rolling combination in dry to intermediate conditions. For wet conditions I using a Michelin Wild Rock R2 on the back with the MM Vert SG on the front a combination which gives loads of grip. Roll is not too bad but MM Trailstar on the might be a better faster rolling combination?
Mr PriceBest tyre T have ever ridden on the front. So much grip & gives you so much confidence in the bike as well
