    How is the autosteer of that tire? Since the Duro is said to have very little/ none, it would be a helpful comparison.
    Thanks in advance!

    • Update: I've been riding the 27.5 x 3.0 Nobby Nic on a 45mm rim for 2 months now and must say this is an incredible muni tire and has really helped me advance my skill level in a short time

      Pros: excellent grip on rocks, boulders and wet situations, hugs corners well, zero auto steer

      Cons: $90. Also, I've heard they have sidewall issues with aggressive enduro riders, I've not experienced any issues as of yet

          The 29x2.6 on a 47mm rim has noticeable autosteer, what could be a possible explanation

                  I've been looking at the dirt wizard. Do you like it. How does it hug rocks and boulders?

                    I think you are spot on! I had the Maxxis on a 32mm rim. Lol

                    • Makes sense, the wider the rim, the more "spread" is the tire.

                      • I just got a 26x3 surly dirt wizard. I really like it. Has good bounce, tons of grip and,seems to be built pretty damn solid. I was able to roll over obstacles pretty well and the grip was really good . all the snow is still melting on the mountains so theres a lot of mud and this tire gripped really well.


                        Would recommend for sure. I like it better than tge 26x3 duro wildlife that came on it.
                        Interesting how both tires coincidentally could be described the acronym DW

                        • For me muni tyres comes down to two factors: Sideways stability and fun. These two factors are mutually exclusive, you can't have both, but you can compromise. This year I've put handlebars on my munis and it helps a great deal with controlling the beasts.

                          I've grouped the muni tyres I have some experience with:

                          Sideways stability:
                          24/26 x 3 Duro Leopard Wildlife
                          27.5 x 3 Surly Dirt Wizard

                          Compromize:
                          27.5 x 3.25 Duro Crux

                          Fun:
                          26 x 3 Surly Knard
                          26 x 3.8 Surly Nate

                          Can't ride it:
                          Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 26 x 4.8 (I was all over the place)

                          My latest purchase is the 27.5 x 3 Surly Dirt Wizard. I really like it. I can keep my balance pretty good (sideways stability), it's very presice, and it's lighter than the Wildlife. Because of this I get pretty confident. I guess it can be fun sometimes to be in control, but it's not the roller coaster kind of fun that you get with other tyres. The drops feels a bit hard though, and I really have to pay attention to the terrain in front of me or else I'll get thrown off by small roots or bumps (bigger roots and bumps are no problem). And yes, it lives up to it's name. Great on dirt and mud.

                          If I have a very good day, the Surly Knard is the best. Light, playfull and bouncy. But when I have an off day I struggle with it, especially when it comes to sideways balance. The Nate is in the same category, but it rolls over more stuff and is heavier an more bouncy.

                          In the middle you have the Duro Crux wich is really great.

                          The weight of the tyre gives you an indication on were to place it on the sideways stability/fun scale I think.

                            I find the 26" x 2.8" Maxxis Minion DHF 60tpi dual compound tire seems to go where I want it to. I'm satisfied. I'm trying to decide whether to replace it with a 26x3" Surly Dirt Wizard or buy another Minion.

                            Sorry for the delay in replying. I just saw your post today

                              Thanks for your answer! That was a bit of a delay.
                              Funny thing is, I just checked in to ask trepper 687 the same question.
                              Maybe he would like to share his experience concerning the autosteer of the Dirt Wizard?

                              Cheers

                              • I have a 29" Kris Holm. I changed the frame to get the disc tab at some point, so the frame is the one that still had the Magura tabs and the disc tab, and it was the first "wider" with the flatter crown top, like the current ones. Can I put a Duro Crux 3.25 on it? Or would that only work for more recent frames (without the Magura tabs)?
