Knobby tire for Inmotion V10

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried knobby tire for the V10?  Kuji's test of street vs knobby tire on the Sherman and he stated that the knobby tire has more stability.  I am curious if this would apply to the V10 with the below knobby tire.

Tire came in.  It looks smaller since it's 2.4" instead of 2.5".

This is just the kind of information I need since I plan to buy Inmotion V10F. I plan to use this euc even on winter. For that I need knobby tire and studs. Please keep this topic updated.

I wonder, what is the maximum load capacity of this tire?

Whatever it is, you don’t need to worry about it at EUC speeds. Just keep the tire in a pressure that carries you sufficiently. The optional pressure depends on the rigidity is the tire, rider weight, as well as riding circumstances and preferences.

@mrelwood Do you think that knobby 16x2.4 (64-305) fits to Inmotion V10/V10F (16x2.5)? Or do you have better suggestions for us which tire to choose? Even better if you can give us examples.

16x2.4 probably would fit the V10. Unfortunately I haven’t seen a 16x ~2.5” knobby/dual purpose tire that I would’ve liked to try.

I just fitted a 64-305 knobbly to my V10F from here: https://www.einradladen.com/16-x-24-Inch-64-305-Trials-Tire

My motivation was to minimise the spinning that occurs in time of low traction and/or maximise traction in loose surfaces.

Fits well, although it took a little while to seat it evenly due to distortion from packing/shipping.  Once seated evenly it fits perfectly, it's about the same size and shape as the stock tyre.

Initial impressions are very strong, though admittedly this is only riding around a garden.  Noise on the hard stuff isn't too bad but noticeably louder than the stock tyre.  I'm initially very impressed and looking forward to my first true offroad ride.

@StuartL Glad you found this forum. Thank you very much for sharing this information with us. Could you please keep us informed regarding of your experience with this knobby tire?

I did a couple of miles this morning on the V10 with the above tyre.

TL;DR: Excellent, very pleased.

Detailed analysis:

The weather has been very warm and dry for the UK, the ground was almost entirely hard packed clay soil with the normal woodland loose surface (twigs, dry leaves, etc).  Linking trails are hard packed dirt road with a packed small shingle surface.

The wheel is my Inmotion V10F with home-made 25mm (1") neoprene foam jump pads/power pads and the above tyre.

The tyre is labelled as "Innova 64-305 16x2.4" and specifies to be inflated to 40psi.  I ran 30 psi for this test.  Note that there is no distinction in the manufacturer or model of this tyre, it simply says "Innova".

On all dry surfaces (woodland trail, the packed mud and the packed trail) the tyre seemed to grip well enough for all my uses.  I didn't try carving hard or pushing the limits of grip but there were no surprises, weird turning characteristics or loss of traction.

Bumping over tree roots felt natural and easy and this is an area where the stock tyre suffered significantly.  The road tread on the stock tyre has a smooth (slick) surface around the perimeter and any slippery tree root caused 'interesting' behaviour.  I had a few side-ways slips with the Innova tyre but all were small/trivial, easily corrected and didn't feel unstable.  The tread on this tyre has all the blocks lined up in lines parallel to the axle and this gives a significant advantage when climbing over a tree root at lower speeds.

There were a very small number of gummy muddy sections which I mostly avoided (why get crud on the wheel unnecessarily?) but the few I did go through showed the massive advantages of a knobbly tyre.  It felt squishy but wholly stable and the wheel didn't struggle for grip at all at the steady speeds I was doing.

On an unrelated note: This is the first woodland run I've done with the pads on the wheel and OMG did it make a positive difference.  Jumping the wheel over the larger roots and small logs was easy and a great deal of fun :D

Edit: Additional note.  I just ran out for a couple of miles on the road to see what it's like.  It's noisy for sure but not as bad as you might think.  It's also not particularly great when carving so I could not recommend this tyre for road use.  For off road with occasional road (my use) it'd be fine.

I still haven't had a chance to install it yet.  But the tire that StuartL linked looks identical to mine in the picture.  Except mine says is branded as "Qind" instead.  Still update soon.

Thank you for replying to this thread, we look forward to your experience with this tire.
