Congratulations to Wayne Blair and Kyle Beattie riding on MSC tires to take out the u23 and 40yr age group.

We dig deeper into the new Tractor tire

We dig deeper into the new Tractor tire

The Tractor is a very versatile tire, it will work as a front tire or rear and its semi-open design makes efficient in damp conditions. It works just as well in dry conditions and even on loose broken trails. The micro-textured center blocks and the ribbed transitional lugs gives it good climbing traction without compromising on rolling speed. When you are what the conditions are going to be, the Tractor should be first tire that comes to mind. A true 2.20" (56mm) casing to casing width which is designed to work with 25-30mm ID rims.

Tire Compounds and Shore Durometers

Tire Compounds and Shore Durometers

A really important aspect of a good tire is the use of the right tire compound for the right conditions. The rubber in bike tires are measured by durometer. Shore durometer is a measure of hardness of a material by measuring the depth of the indentation into the materi

How wide are you rims?

How wide are you rims?

What happens when your rims are new skool wide but your tires are not? Well you get more rolling resistance and unpredictable cornering.

Tire Pressures

Tire Pressures

Tire pressures are key to getting the maximum performance from your tires. Perfect pressures will get the tire shape working as it's designed to, which will increase  comfort, grip and produce predictable cornering. Perfect pressure is not about setting and forgetting, it will take a bit of trial and error to get the right pressure for your wheel setup, weight and riding style. You can use our systematic approach to dial in the right pressure within 3psi accuracy.

Too high and you'll reduce rolling resistance (in some terrain) at the loss of comfort and grip. Too low and you'll get...
