Vee have been kind enough to send us a pair of these Flow Snap tyres, 27.5 and 2.35 wide. They’re not necessarily mud or specifically even winter tyres, Vee do other tyres for those purposes. Even up in Yorkshire we’re not quite ready for the mud tyres yet……
The Flow Snap is Vee’s gravity and enduro tyre, aimed for dry, loose trails –
“For a tyre with massive grip and traction, it is reliable and predictable in the rough, yet still rolls quickly and efficiently, making it an ideal choice for long haul trail rides or enduro race stages.”
They come tubeless ready, a little tight to get on but once on, they sealed first time. The sidewalls feel good and sturdy, without feeling too heavy at the same time.

After an initial quick ride, they seem amazing, partly due to the poor efforts I has running before. Jokes aside, they do seem good and positive. I was able to hit lines and ride them out, where I wasn’t expecting to. It got to the point where I was almost able to out corner my spaniel, that takes some doing, trust me. I’m looking forward to giving them a more thorough testing very soon.
