Ended: Tyre and Brake Pad Bundle


Win a year’s supply of brake pads and tyres from AstonMTB! With the Summer bike park and riding season rapidly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere, take the chance to win 6x brand new tyres and six pairs of brake pads so you can grip and stop all summer long!

Tyres: We all need tyres and they are critical for a high-performance and safe, predictable bike. If you ride a lot and want to run the grippiest then that means a lot of friction and thus a lot of wear. I tested MaxxGrip compound Maxxis Assegai’s in the bike park last year and even though the grip is insanely good, the burn rate is ridiculous: hard-packed and rocky race runs can cost £5-8 per run!

Win 6x tyres of your choice which should be enough to keep you glued to the ground in any condition. I’ll discuss with the lucky winner the best options for their bike, style, weight, and location and will ship globally as usual.

Brake pads:

We all need them and like grippy tyres, they are very important for optimum performance. It doesn’t matter what fancy and expensive brakes you have if the pads are worn out and contaminated with oil!

This comp is for 6x pairs of Galfer pads, which should be enough for one year for a hard racer, for us mere mortals, these may last years. You could even kit out all of your family and friends’ bikes with a pair.

I’ve tried many pads over the years and you could spend a lifetime only testing brake pads. But I found that overall the purple ‘e-Bike’ pads from Galfer to be the best overall, I’m sure there are other great options out there too. These purple pads last for ages, offer great performance and bite in all conditions and are good values at around £20 per pair compared to some others.

Winner is: Sebastien Jobin

Ticket number: 310 Answer: Spain

Congratulations to Sebastian Jobin from Switzerland!
