The Ritchey SpeedMax Beta tire is a fast rolling tire that features an updated version of the Ritcheys original SpeedMax tire with center "digger" tread and Z-Max inspired side knobs for improved cornering.
I have ridden these tires for years on one of my Mountain bikes. They make a great all around tire for hard packed dirt/gravel or asphalt trails. They roll really easy and provide plenty of traction except for really loose conditions. I took a star off because they no longer make the lighter foldable Kevlar bead version and you must now purchase a heavier wire bead version.
PROS: Good Cushioning, Good Traction, Puncture Resistant, Versatile, Rugged
CONS: Slips On Steep Climbs
BEST USES: Single Track, Cross Country, Casual Trails
This tire is on my around town, kid and grocery schlepping bike-- an old but nice 26" hardtail. The tires have moderate tread and don't feel like overkill on pavement. This bike sometimes sees some fire road and mostly dry single track and the tires work great there too. I get around 1000 miles out of them, but that's wearing them right down to nothing.
CONS: Probably not the best for true mud
BEST USES: Commuting, Cross Country, Single Track, Casual Trails
