Firstly l would like to say that the service is first rate, its the second time I have used next day tyres and when there isn't a weekend or bank holiday in the way they certainly do arrive next day.
Now for a truthful review for the tyres!
These things roll and i mean roll i have the exception series 2.1 (faster and easier to push than SB8's). The side walls are thin on the exception series but still really good build quality, but if your into going through rock gardens get EXO protection. On the plus side they came in under there quoted weight 450g (woop).
Handeling wise they are good for XC tyers but you do have to lean them over so that side nobs start to bite but once they do you will be going no where other than where you want to go.
They can skirm a little on loose stuff (but what dose grip loose stones/ loose sand) buts thats part of the fun I say.
FOR THERE INTENDED PURPOSE! they are a truly great tyre don't be expecting to go through really thick sloppy mud in these thats not what they are designed for. On the other hand they still handle damp to wet single track well and clear fast. JUST STAY AWAY FROM THE REAL DEEP THICK STICKY STUFF. If thats your bag get the Maxxis beavers
Oh and they where a dream come true for tubeless on Stans rims. They seemed to have a keying surface on the inside to help the stan's fluid out. Might not be what thats for but it mounted and pumped up first time.
Tread wear is still early days but they handled the weekends high heat well with no signs of premature wear.
Many thanks to all at next day tyres!
