Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grippy not slippy Replaced an ageing rear Nevegal with the Excavator for the winter months, not a big volume tyre but more than makes up for narrow width with the deep tread and higher profile. With superb grip, mud clearing excellence and low(ish) rolling resistance I'm very pleased with this tyre. Recent riding in snow and on ice showed it to be sure footed and predictable when traction finally broke. Very impressed 5*.. 03 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding I chose these tyres purely based upon their looks, going with the ethos 'if they look good, then they must BE good'. And sure enough, I was right. I've ridden a 2.1" front and 1.95" on my singlespeed 26" MTB for over a year now, and they are still like new (after a warm water rub down). I've had no punctures whatsoever, and the rolling resistance seems to be fair. After all, they're not slicks but knobblys, so you have to expect a little drag. They grip amazingly, even doing 45 degree slant bendy turns on tarmac....Not to mention in torrential rain as well. Good looks and great function? What more could you ask for? I've chosen to go with this tyre again for my new build, but will ramp up the rear size from 1.95" to 2.1" to get some added fatness to the rear. Not gonna be running them on the front though, I will try out another fatter tyre up there for that job. All round performer with killer looks and long-lasting dependability, at an affordable price. 16 September 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by best tire ever used used the Nevegal for a few years on my Tracer and Blur lt2, good but slow rolling and wear quickly. Excavator does everything better, and lasts MUCH longer. 24 March 2012

Yes; these Excavator DTC tyres (sku184901) are a 26 x 2.1" tyre. There appears to be a coding error on our site, which I have informed our web team to update asap.
