Oh, pair a Nevegal on the rear with a Kenda Blue Groove on the front, gives better turn in. Lovely tyres!

I use the Nevegal UST as my rear tire and works great! Works well with mud, hardpack and corners.

Love the Nevegal. I rode a 2.5 on my Santa Cruz Nomad for two years. Had them on it in South Carolina for 2 years and 1 year back here in santa cruz, ca. Now I’m riding the 2.25 Nevegal on my new Ibis Mojo SL. Great all around tire. Mud, hard pack, sand, it’s all good. My rides the Nevegal 2.25 on her Santa Cruz Juliana and swears by them as well.

Just my two cents and vote.
