Model/Year: Jumbo Jim snakeskin Addix speedgrip 2018-2019

Pros: I'm running tubeless 4.8s since a year back with orange seal and I'm now replacing me wifes vee mission with the 4.0 version. Using fattystripper as tubeless kit. I went from vee snowshoe and the difference is huge in every aspect. Very low rolling resistance both on and off road. No self steering. Feels light and made the bike as a whole feel much more light and easy to handle. Great for climbing steep hills and awesome in the woods regardless of the trail. Awesome grip. Fast. Works good in snow. Fun!

Cons: Not great in mud or swamps - it kinda sticks to it.

Recommendation: Buy it if you want a great all round tire which is fast rolling and light but still doesn't compromise on grip! Choose another tire if mud and swamps is your primary arena. I ride some trails that's muddy and I enjoy a good swamp but imo the pros outweigh the cons by massive amounts.

Pros: Set up tubeless they are very low rolling resistance. I mean very low. Very low weight, very little understeer in low pressure. good wear, good all around tire both on road and off

Cons: Noise on pavement Not great in mud or on ice.

Recommendation: buy it and forget it.

Pros: Rolls like a greased pig Very light Good traction Easy setup Comfy ride

Cons: Wears kinda fast Won't fend of nails or screws on the trail

Recommendation: I replaced my Minions with these and have never looked back. Bought another rear when the first one wore down to the nubs
