Hatfield McCoy tires?
Posted December 23, 2005 - 09:27 AM
I am currently running Maxxis ST's front and rear. Front is new, rear is worn out. At home I always run a soft terrain but the terrain is very different in WV.
Thanks for the advice.

The terrain will vary widely by changing back and forth between loose dirt, rock, mud and even some occasional sand all mixed in with straight aways, mountain trails and hill climbs. There is no one tire that works best in all the conditions you can encounter, but the IT's do a good job all around.

The loose rocks at Hatfield are easy with S12s but they can be tricky in the wet rocks due to the hard compound construction ( they just spin and dont bite on wet rocks). Maxxis SI rear will last only a 4-5 days at Hatfield McCoy in the spring time. If you can afford to throw it away after the week of riding stay with a new Maxxis SI.

The MaxxCross SI was developed and tested at the Grand National Cross Country Series, the SI’s race-proven tire compound delivers excellent traction in soft/intermediate conditions. Its anti-flex knob bridges on side lugs offer solid straight-line stability. It also features an enhanced grip to allow for aggressive cornering. The SI is proof that Maxxis is taking performance to the next level.
The SurCross ST is specifically designed for soft and intermediate terrain. Large tread blocks promote self-cleaning and provide superb traction. The tire features an aggressive tread pattern with wide spacing to provide excellent stability and optimum grip.
