The Ignitor tread pattern was designed for the most discerning professional racers and already has laid claim to multiple World Cup victories. The well-spaced tread pattern fills in nicely to provide low rolling resistance in the straights, while the ramped pentagonal knobs provide excellent traction in the corners and in medium terrains.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Greaved Great when new but, grip fades when used
Grip drops off rapidly even though visually there's loads of tread left

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlanK Great all round UST tyre
Tyre was easy to fit on rim (Stans Flow EX), inflated first time with track pump, no sealant required. Grip is good on most surfaces, great for hardpack.

En invierno es una basura. Subir por cualquier trialera se convierte en continuas perdidas de traccion del neumatico trasero. Delante funciona mejor para trazar, pero los hay mejores en el mercado. Compuesto muy duro. Bien para rodar a alta velocidad por pistas en buen estado, pero nada más. En cuanto se desgasten los cambio por otros.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tyres when not muddy
Been using Ignitor for a few years, for singletrack use and can't fault them. They have very good grip and handle most conditions very well. Ridden terrain from Sandy Thetford to Rocky Wales and these have handled everything impressively well.
I took part in a 4man team 12 hour race at the weekend and these tyres really let me down, rained all night and the Thetford course became a gloopy mess, these didn't roll well at all, was like riding through treacle! Not a good tyre for bad conditions. I have just purchased a pair of Medusa's for gloopy conditions, but will continue to use these for everything else!

There is no single tyre that's perfect for South England XC autumn/winter/spring rides but these tyres handle most things except really muddy conditions. Worth the investment and prefer them over previous conti mountain kings

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Mixed feelings
First time using tubeless. Excellent grip and predictable handling in most conditions, but sidewalls are very thin. Wrecked a two week old tyre at Whinlatter when a rock cut through the side wall. Running 30 psi front and rear so can't have been a pinch flat. Looking for some tyres with thicker side walls now.
