Jumbo Jim snakeskin Addix speedgrip 2018-2019
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.
Works good in snow.
Not great in mud or swamps - it kinda sticks to it.
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.
