Editor’s Choice: Best Mountain Bike Tires
Trail and All ‘Rounder Tires
Today’s mountain bike tires fall into two main categories (three if you count fat bike tires): xc/gravel and trail/enduro/gravity. While there is a good amount of variation between trail tires and gravity tires, riders in this category are looking for grip and durability over light weights and low rolling resistance.
Singletracks has tested dozens of tires from 15+ brands over the years, and you can find links to reviews of each trail / enduro / gravity tire below. Prices and weights listed are as tested.
