    Ritchey Speedmax vs Michelin Jet

    Which tire is better? I am looking for one tire that I can race on, but can also stand up to training on the road.

    If you are looking for one that you can train on the road, get the cheapest one.

    The jet is a nicer tire, wears much faster on the road.
    Speedmax hooks up better off road (loose stuff), will last much longer on the road but it is squirrely so be careful.

    I like the Jet. I have Mud 2's and Jets and like to mix/match them when I'm racing, depending on the conditions. I really like the Jet on the rear and Mud on the front for a dry course.

    Thats exactly what I do. Mud 2 in front, Jet in rear. I had that setup last year. sold that bike with the tires. bought a new bike that came with Speedmax Comp. The Michelins are soft and grippy but are not the greatest at cornering on a loose surface (compared to a knobby tire like the Mud 2). The Speedmax are hard and would most likely last longer on the road. I haven't done any racing on them yet. Not sure what the Speedmax Pro's would be like. I'll use the Ritchey tires till cross season. Then I think I'll get some Michelins.
