"These grips only tighten on the outside end and this lets it down. It is a comfortable grip that helps to spread the load across the palm especially on the trail. the problem is I could not get a tight fit so the grip would rotate when least expected. This was not great when cornering..."
Pros: Comfortable
Cons: Poor Fit

Are these tyres OK for loose material cycle path use?

Hi,

Part of my commute is along 6 miles of a dissused and converted railway line and I feel my current MTB tyres are a little overkill.

Would these be OK for regular use on medium to fine gravel track?

Thanks
Roughly two thirds of my 6 mile ride is along trail alongside the river and they perform really well in wet and loose conditions, a bit of caution is required for sharp turns when the ground is dry and hard as the gravel can slide a bit, but I would recommend the tyres as a good option.
