My last tyres were magic mary's, I never got a single puncture with them, and that is just using standard tubes. If you go for the downhill casing version I doubt you will need armours. And they are brilliant tyres in general,
I'm running Minions ATM and I am still trying to work out which tyre I prefer.
If you want to do a mix of everything offroad and onroad then the Travelanch is what I would choose. But I doubt a rear rack would work on it, and 25kg is kinda heavy to have up above your rear wheel.
Not just because that weight high up will unbalance the bike.
(most wheels will advise that you do not exceed total bike and rider weight levels this will be around 130 - 150kg normally)
So if you add your weight and the bikes plus your intended cargo it may be close to that.
It has a long travel rear end so the gap between the wheel and seat tube reduces by a large amount when you compress the suspension there just would not be the room. And full suspension bikes in general do not cater for things like panier's etc so I doubt that you could mount one easily. When I need to carry anything large or heavy I just put it in a 60 ltr back pack.
The nice thing about any Ultra bike is you have plenty of power so you can have the long travel suspension, fatter tyres et
As an all around bike, would like to see other wheel options on which to mount different spec tires for some trail riding as well. I’m sure most of you have seen the new Bosch concept, but these wheels are perfect.
