    Just swapped over to 28x10x14 cryptids from the bighorn 2.0s. I primarily ride in the mud. Ive read alot about clutch weights on this site and its been helpful meaning i know i need clutch weights but need to know which size 16 or 18. the bighorns weighed around 28lbs and the cryptids are running little over 40 each. Since adding the cryptids, Ive noticed it takes alot more pedal to get her moving.

    Weight really shouldn't be an issue it's all about gear ratio. I run 18g for my 28's. They are fantastic and give me the perfect gear ratio for the riding that I do. Using 16's will give you more low end. Might be good for the mud but you may have to experiment.

    If you want "lower gearing" due to the larger, heavier tires you should consider installing the Hunterworks machined sheave and 18g weights. That is what I installed and I run 30x10R12 Blackwaters. My machine crawls nice and slow over rocks and through the mud with that setup. The machined sheave is really what gets you the low gearing that I think you are seeking. My friend installed just the 18g weights in his X4 and it didn't make all that much difference so he eventually installed the machined sheave as well. Hunterworks has an informative website if you care to check it out - good explanations of the sheave as well as installation videos.
