Schwalbe Magic Mary (SnakeSkin/Addix Soft)

Schwalbe’s Magic Mary has been a top choice tyre for many aggressive trail riders since its release in 2014.

VEE Tire Co Flow Snap

Hope Technology Pro 2 on Mavic 721 Wheelset

Weight: 987g Front 1114g Rear Wheels take a battering at these kinds of events; a solid week of blasting downhill over tough and rocky conditions means plenty of wear and tear.
