The Schwalbe tyres on my new bike are 27.5" Magic Marys are 2.35" wide but don't seem to grip very well?  Can you recommend an alternative?

Almost certainly the tyres that came on your bike are OEM performance versions so yes they're probably not a lot of good to be honest.  This is normal for most new mountain bikes where the wheels and tyres are dumbed down for pricing gains.

You will find the 3C (triple compound) Magic Marys (especially the new ADDIX compounds) a completely different experience, a lot of bikers are now pairing a front Magic Mary with a rear Hans Dampf?

Otherwise you might want to try the Maxxis Minions DHF and DHRII, obviously other recommendations will depend on the kind of riding you are doing? Hope that helps
