got a set of scylla's on both my wheelsets. very good tracktion with loose over hard terain. probably the lightest tubeless around. 490gramms. no flats yet. very hard to get onto a stans rim though. the mavic crossmax was easier.

could definately recommend

I have a set of these tyres on my bike as a bikeshop asked me to test them.

 

I found them to be:-

 

1. Fast rolling

2. Good grip in the Gauteng dry conditions ( no rain yet)

3. Very hard to get onto my rims. Don't know if they will come off without been cut

 

I was concerned about the strength of the sidewalls as the rubber is soft.

 

On Sunday I tried out a few bunnyhops to see if the tyres would hold air. On the last landing the front tyre split at the seam.

 

I have many grazes, bruised ribs, a broken helmet and a suspected broken wrist.

 

I will never fit the tyres to my bike again.

It's always the last one that does it hey...

 

That's because you couldn't continue anyway Lol

 

I hope you're not in too much pain and that the bike shop compensates you for your expensive testing phase.

Fitted a tube and rode 10kms to Medicross Clinic, had X-rays and grazes dressed, then rode home. Africa is not for sissies.

 

I was so pumped up with adrenaline that I only started feeling pain 10 minutes after getting to Clinic.
