The vertical has everything a classic tyre needs. It is all home on all trails, really showing what it can do when the terrain turns rugged. Still the top choice for tours in Alpine terrain where low weight and high puncture protection are paramount.

PSI - Rec.
PSI - Max

Благодаря особой формы шипов, покрышка легко чиститься и грязь не налипает. При этом всём она хваткая на дороге. Соотношение цены и качества прекрасно.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigApe Excellent Grippy Value Tyre
I was thinking of trying some new tyres in the wet, claggy muddy trails that are local, after wearing down the standard Maxxis Advantage tyres (which were ok), and coming off a few on muddy, leafy trails), I thought I'd try this at little of £13 each.
After taking them for their first run in the Forest of Dean (my first time there too# I was pleased that they held better than expected, you find that they'll slide a little and then grip. This takes a bit of getting used to but it's controllable. They hold well and grip over roots and rocks better than the Maxxis Advantage, the plug through mud well and shed it easily.
They size up differently to others. These 2.3" are the same as Maxxis 2.25". Not much difference, but Continental measure their tyres differently to others #Sidewall to Sidewall I believe, rather than across the tread, or vice versa) so they do come up slightly slimmer.
The only question - why do they mould spider webs into the tyre?!
On hard pack, rocks, loose mud, roots and leaves they perform well, not tried on Tarmac yet.
For the money, they're definitely worth a go! Tread blocks are numerous and pronounced which helps with the grip on the softer stuff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tone Verticals are good tyres but be aware, these are the basic wire version
I've used Verticals for about 7 years now as they're great all rounders. The Black Chilli compound protection version being the best imho. Unfortunately despite the tyre in the picture being the protection version the one being sold here is the base wire version.
Ok & good value but nothing special.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dt5266 Grippy, quick, best tyre used so far
Bought these as a replacement to the bontragers I had used in the past.
Really grippy on the down hill sections and cope really well with tree root climbs and step rocky sections of trails - will climb vertical sections!
My only negative on them is that even though they can resist sharp rocks, they are hopeless against thorns.
Wouldn't get the wired rims again as they are a ... to fit but would buy the non wired ones in a heartbeat

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kona666 Grippy and fast rolling
Grippy and fast rolling is a difficult combo to manage so when I found these for a mere £15 I was very impressed. They are the best trail tyre for all conditions I have come across yet and although you may find better tyres for rocky trails these are easily the best for places like glentress or the pentlands in Scotland. They have a very aggressive tread pattern which because of the pyramid shaped blocks clears well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lorenz Perfetta per city bike
Ottima copertura per utilizzo su asfalto, scorre dignitosamente.
Non utilizzare su tracciati che prevedono curve, in quanto devono essere gonfiate a 4 bar per non flettere pericolosamente.
La consiglio per Freeride sulle piste ciclabili di tutto il mondo.
