Enduro tyres matter

Lesson #7: Tyres matter.
There probably is no perfect tyre for rough, janky courses covered in deep dust. So which tread each competitor selected was less important than it is for some courses. But keeping air inside is really important. I saw a few guys at the side of the trail with sealant leaking out of holes in the tyre. Those sharp rocks can be nasty.
You don’t have to be running DH spec tyres either – it is overkill for most people, even on that course. But the Maxxis Exo protection (as an example) makes the sidewalls that bit more durable while foam tyre inserts can protect the tyre from pinch flats, and protect the rim from the big rocks.
Know what you are running and why you are running it.
