At a Glance

The 2.4 Rubber Queen was an easy choice to make for the Mega, we wanted a tyre that was tough and grippy, and the Rubber Queen is just that. At well over a kilo per tyre the 2.4 is quite heavy, but as we were mostly going down that didn’t bother us. The added advantage of running it tubeless also ensured we should lessen the risk of pinch flats and punctures.

At the Mega

The conditions for grip were tough, the trails in Alp D’Huez were about as varied as you could get. At the top of the race it was all snow, then they had to deal with wet rock and finally dry and dusty conditions and even mud at the bottom of the course. We lost the front end a bit in the dust, but it was about as loose as you could get in terms of the trail. Overall considering the conditions they performed brilliantly and excelled throughout the whole week. There is still plenty of life left in them and we didn’t have a single problem with punctures with our tubeless set up. They definitely added to our performance for the week.


Stood up to the Mega Test brilliantly, no flats for the whole week and still going strong. Plenty of grip although they did struggle with the dust at times, but then so did just about every other tyre there!
