    Confidence Inspiring in the rough

    Recently switched to these as my front tyre and have nothing but praise for them. Firstly they are a doddle to get on and off if you need to. For me this is important as I ride mixed conditions and like to switch my rubber to suit. Most my routes involve some tarmac to get to the trail and whilst the Purgatory is not the quickest it is not bad considering the grip it offers in the rough stuff. It will stay as my front tyre throughout autumn/winter and is easy enough to switch to when you know conditions are going to be loose, medium or boggy in the other seasons. It has transformed the front end of my bike after switching from an “all-rounder” tyre. It gives you real confidence to push when before you may have been hesitant. The Control version seems fine for mixed conditions and I would only consider the Grid if conditions were really rocky.

    Great XC tyre for british conditions!

    Got this tyre to replace older 'captain control' and first impressions are that it is an improvement on that design. It has well spaced knobs on the tread which give excellent grip in muddy, boggy conditions, and drive and traction when you put power down is really impressive- well recommended for XC riders!

    Purgatory

    Good overall tyre excellent traction on all surfaces up & downhill thin side walls so can tear on sharp rocks I run tubeless but the side walls are porous & take a while to seal
