Yep, 29" DH22 is 1500g, DH34 1450g, both steel bead

Added reply in a thread Michelin tires thread! 4/17/2021 3:07 PM

Yes, Wild Enduro with DH casing but folding bead. 1400g, already available at several EU stores

Man, what a bike. Don't know why, but SS enduro hardtails make me crazy. I frequently have this stupid impulse to sell the enduro full suspension frame and build a single speed Pipedream Moxie or Gonzo ESD

I think tyres are such a personal and user case dependant choice that simply equating them to skill or speed is not enough. People ride different terrains, different skills, different styles, different weights. I've had 150lb guys who ride slightly slower ... more »

Primoz, I think you hypothesis is spot on. If I was lighter, had a shorter travel bike or was into mellower rides (or even more manmade flowy trails) then I'd definitely go with a lighter casing and light inserts. Madsam9, what you say goes inline with ... more »

Yeah, I was actually considering going with dual DH Assegais but then saw that the actual weight is over 1400g. It seems Maxxis did some rolling change on the DH Assegai as the earlier ones were on the lower 1300g. At that weight level I prefer to go ... more »

I obviously know that you're aware what enduro is. My point is that many riders refer their riding style as "enduro" but they are generally well served by trail/AM grade parts. And I disagree that Michelin is the only one marketing tyres for enduro. ... more »

Enduro, more than a riding style, refers to a racing format. If the vast majority of competitive riders on that racing format, even at a local level, are using DH tyres then somethings out of whack. It's like if a brand was selling a range of NASCAR ... more »

I'm now 2 rides deep on the DH34s. Only one regret so far, not to have got them sooner. Climbing First, they suck in tarmac, for real. If your access climbs are paved I'd steer away from these. Second, surprisingly, they don't suck everywhere else, at ... more »

My DH34s just arrived. One's 1455g, the other 1440g, no surprises here. The thread pattern is really really reminiscent of the DHR2, I guess the "Michelin DHR2" joke makes sense indeed. The rubber compound is quite interesting, very tacky but not "spongy" ... more »

I think this is the predictable path for the enduro tyre market. When we see brands selling supposedly "enduro" tyres but then all the enduro racers are on DH casings you know something's wrong. Even the new Super Gravity casing 29x2.4 Magic Mary weights ... more »

I had my hands on a prototype Racing Line WE front. The thread pattern is 100% like the regular WE, very hard to judge the rubber compound by touch. Casing is way stiffer. The rider told me it weighted 1400g, but wasn't too sure about it

Added reply in a thread Michelin tires thread! 2/1/2021 5:11 AM

Wyn Masters spilled the beans in his IG saying the Racing Line WE are to be release in March. I would love to try them, but can't really wait nearly 2 months for new tyres

Added reply in a thread Michelin tires thread! 2/1/2021 3:06 AM

Just placed the order on a set of Dh34 Racing Line. Can't wait to try them

Any has experience with the DHR2 Maxxgrip up front on winter conditions?

Added reply in a thread Michelin tires thread! 1/12/2021 3:13 AM

Ok, so after my last ride I realised my rear Wild Enduro is really giving the ghost. So new tyres in the next couple of weeks. Anyone have tried the DH34 Bikepark in the front?

Added reply in a thread Michelin tires thread! 1/10/2021 5:55 AM

Regarding thread durability on the WE, I actually found them to be more durable than Maxxterra. I'm on a set since July and except for the casing (which I already mentioned on my previous comments) the thread is remarkably fine. The rear one is missing ... more »

Finding the DH22 very draggy?

DH or enduro bike?
