More diesel power

Went for a spin on the Craftworks to try out the new tyres. Compared with the Fire FRs they certainly roll much better on tarmac and hardpack trails, but aren’t quite as grippy when the going gets soft, which resulted in a couple of comedy crashes when the bike disappeared from under me.

On balance, for most of the riding I do they are the best compromise tyre. For pure XC stuff, I’d either try the Gravitys, or more likely ride a different bike, and for more downhill/freeride style riding I’d go back to the Fire FR’s.
