'General purpose' Cyclocross tyres recomendation?

by SideBurn   December 6, 2011  

Am using Michelin 'Jet' and 'Mud2' tyres at the moment depending on the weather and expected terrain. They are great but do not last very long; I suspect they are more racing tyres. What is the best general purpose/training tyre? I do a lot of off road on moorland and tracks; a lot of the tracks I do are quite rocky and tend to destroy the Michelin's...

Panaracers are pretty hardy, the Cinder Cross is a fave of mine

I've read that a lot of 3Peaks racers use Schwalbe Landcruisers.

Kenda Kross Supreme are really cheap (if a little weighty) and seem fairly hardy IME. Extra knobbly so they are a bit noisy and squirmy on road but not too bad.
