IRC Mythos XC II
 


July 1, 2014
 
Model/Year: 1996

Pros: Long life span, light, good tread pattern

Cons: Doesn't corner very well

Recommendation: A great fast rolling tire that is ideal for XC riding. Plenty of grip, but leaves a little to be desired in hard corners. Overall a very good tire.

Pros: These are best for a true XC geek. nice even drift front to rear

Cons: They run to the small side of 1.9 or 2.1 lose edge a litlle quick. But I ride like someone removed my brain

Recommendation: These were the only tire used for my first 10K miles. Well several sets were used

Pros: Great value; grippy in muddy/tacky conditions.

Recommendation: Just put one of these puppies on my front wheel after switching from a semi-slick. Rolling resistance felt minimal and these tires did well in muddy conditions. Caked-in mud quickly sheds on firm ground.

Pros: Great for the price, I paid about $15/ea. and they have held up over a year now. I use 1.95 for hardpacked dry conditions near my home, good hold, fast and light.

Recommendation: Great dry condition tire, the 2.0 is much smaller than a specialized 2.0 and I don't know why, so if you hit sand or mud this may not be the tread for you.
