These tyres worked great for me in the muddy conditions, an upgrade from my 33mm sammy slick's. I ran these tyres with innertubes (clinchers) and had a puncture when I went as low as I dared to get as much grip as possible. My advice, run 40 PSI to maximise puncture resistance if your using these with innertubes, other than that these tyres are superb in ALL conditions for cyclocross racing/riding.
Nice and aggressive tread for the muck of cyclocross
Fantastic grip, light and a lovely supple ride if you run with slightly lower pressures. I ran around 38/40 psi front/rear (80kg ride) and these were perfect in mud. However the downside is that sidewalls are very delicate. They are the Liteskin walls which gives a great ride but will not take the lower pressures if they come into contact with anything sharp. I found that out after descending a flinty trail and blew out both front and back tyres. If used in mud or gravel you should have no problem. Just avoid flints or go for the Racing Ralph Snakeskin and slightly higher pressures.
Great tyres fantastic grip and performance.
