Schwinn MTB Tire comes with a built in flat resistant layer for ultimate protection on the road or trail. Ultra durable steel bead construction and traction suited for trail riding. It fits most 26-Inch bikes.
I think the 24 inch mountain bike tire is great. Simple packaging, easy to install. Make sure you are aware this is only one tire not a set. The tread is great and fits on my teenagers bike. I would recommend, just buy two.
This is a great quality tire and I’m grateful for it. This tire is Much better than others that I have used in the past. It is durable and sturdy, and makes for a very smooth ride. I feel both safe and secure wherever I am riding with this tire.
Integrated flat protection systems provides superior puncture resistance. Inverted tread design reduces rolling resistance for more speed. Super hard 69-durometer rubber compound for enhanced tire wear.
Max pressure: 40-65 PSI. Dimensions: CTR: 26″ x 1. 5″. Weight: 660 grams. Color: Black.
I was looking to replace a set of drifters because the ride quality and the construction are a huge draw to this tire. It has a dual compound longer wear in the center and better grip off center. Plus it has flat protection.
I went with a narrower profile (1. 5″ vs 2″) This time since I no longer ride it off road but, on the 2″ previous set it was great and survived everything thrown at it. the inverted tread means it rolls super smooth but still has traction in dirt mud and sand.
The new tires feel great and much lighter give the 200 gram per tire difference. The service from Cambria was awesome as well. I ordered the 1. 5″ based on the rims as i could not find the size on the tires themselves.
So I asked customer service and based on my usage they thought the tires would be fine and they were right. I am very happy with this purchase and glad I chose Cambria!.
Took off knobbys to put these drifters on. I like dual compounds. This is just a 1 day old review for now as I didn’t ride to much yet. At first they weren’t as smooth as I had hoped for. I thought they would definitely be smooth rolling but as I rode I felt the tire caving in down onto the holes causing an inverted bumpy ride.
That’s the whole point of switching them so I was disappointed. Very soon after it was almost as if they broke in. Now I feel a smooth ride. Maybe I should ve went with the 700c on my 29ers for the less drag and faster rolling.
Who knows but as of now I’m happy with the drifters for what they are. Way more traction than skinny 700c tires and smooth rollers compared to knobbys. Thanks all I got for the moment.
Second set of these tires that I’ve purchased for bikes in my home. This set is going on a vintage MTB that I have turned into a slow roll city cruiser. Great tire for dirt road and pavement. Smooth rolling, but still has a bit of grip in the soft stuff.
The WTB Vigilante Comp offers unwavering traction in every corner of the world, the Vigilante is our premier aggressive trail and enduro tire. It grips at lean angles like nobody’s business and is the tire of choice for our entire team of ripping enduro athletes who need a tire that won’t let them down while chasing podiums.
The prominent lugs dig into any terrain, wet or dry, while providing stability at any speed. The ample spacing between the Vigilante’s knobs ensures it flings mud while biting into loose, chunky trails.
Often used as an aggressive front tire the Vigilante is equally at home as a rear tire on loose, steep terrain. Features Durable Casing which is a robust and substantial casing and provides the strength needed for WTB’s wire bead tires to last.
A high ratio of rubber to thread protects against trail threats and urban unpleasantries. Found in all Comp level tires. The Vigilante also boasts the DNA Rubber Compound. WTB’s proprietary 60A durometer rubber compound offers the ideal mix of rolling efficiency and traction for Cross-Country and trail riding applications.
DNA rubber is renowned for being versatile and long-lasting.
I have the thin wall WTB casing and I’m not a fan. The sidewall is starting to tear and there is an inch-long, horizontal slash between the knobs. It does not seem to be very durable with these issues.
The grip is okay, but not great. I am running this tire in the front with a Magic Mary bike park tire in the rear. The differences are huge when comparing these 2 tires since I run them together. The Magic Mary is heavier, but does not have any slashes/tears and has never been punctured.
The Vigilante has small tears, a slash, and gets small punctures from thorns regularly. This tire is definitely cross-country. For the type of riding I do – mostly downhill trail – I probably will not buy this tire again.
However, I might try WTB’s heavier casing in the future.
These are tires but the questions seem to suggest these are grips. I guess the program saw the word “Grip” in the subject line and assumed that’s what they are despite the fact that the word “Tires” are there also.
Anyway, these tires are knobbier than expected and that’s a good thing. The side walls are really stiff which I guess is what makes it tough. The only issue I had was trying to mount them. I’ve mounted tires from different brands on to the same rims (Kenda, Maxxis) and these, or WTB in general, are always more difficult to mount.
I guess this makes for a super tight seal between the beads and the rim. Took it out for a ride last night with leaves on the trails and they performed well. I set them up tubeless and I think I can drop the pressure by a few psi.
Pardon my ignorance. In the absence of any effective sales help, I ordered these tires online. 650/25 millimeters per inch = 26 inches. But no, they’re 27. 5, because you measure somewhere else. No mention of this on the website.
Give me a break. If you want to have a business when things get back to normal in 6 months or so when there is a vaccine, you should please ramp up your customer service by 1000% or so.
The do-it-all trail tire – Aggressive, high-volume tread An aggressive tread in high-volume casing, designed with great traction in mind. The Ardent doesn’t forget the racer with large block-style side knobs offering numerous edges for high-speed cornering.
The center tread, while ideal for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimize rolling resistance. With a wide variety of size offerings, the Ardent captures every mountain rider’s needs.
I’ve been using a 29×2. 35 Ardent Race on rear of a XC/Trail bike after previously running a 29×2. 2 Ikon on rear of same bike. This Ardent Race likely has considerable more rolling resistance along with more weight than my old Ikon, but the better traction on loose dirt, the better traction on loose gravel and better traction on loose rocky uphills, along with better braking and considerably more secure cornering, has been well worth the change.
I am also getting longer wear out of my Ardent Race than my Ikon. My primary riding buddy has the same bike with a 29×2. 25 regular Ardent on rear — the non race version. I can tell he gets better climbing traction than me on extremely steep, loose uphill sections, but most of our rides don’t include sections steep and loose enough for him to get that advantage.
With the regular Ardent’s bigger center knobs, I am sure he gets better.
I’ve had these as front and rear on my short travel 29er FS and 29er HT for years. These are a great option for a beefy XC tire. If your riding preference is more on the trail side these in the front may leave you wanting and you may want a more aggressive tire on the front.
For what I ride they are great. I am in UT and the trails I ride are sandy, or packed, or loose, but not wet or muddy. They roll fast and carry speed very well. They work best if you really lean the bike over and hit the side knobs.
So far so good! Once I got the beads to lock with the rim these were great. Seem to have better traction than the old tires that came with my bike. They soak up more of the bumps/vibration too (they are 1/2″ wider than my originals so assume that is part of it).
Haven’t been able to push them yet in dry dirt but in the soft slightly wet conditions and over damp roots and rocks they have been great! No leaks from the tubeless perspective either. I had to use a hair dryer to warm up the tires (mounted on the rims) as these were folded and the creases wouldn’t allow a seal to the rim.
Once warmed up I was able to inflate them easily (with a tire pump not an air compressor).
It provides a protective layer with increased strength and extra puncture resistance. Mountain bike tires feature a new, optimized tread pattern for your off-road adventures. A carbon steel bead allows the tire to be folded without damage for easy storage.
I purchased two of these in the store. They are $20 in store and $15 on line, go figure. The packaging, as others have stated, is unclear as to the size of tire you are buying. I took the tire out of the package and still was not sure until I got it home and removed the zip tie binding it together and got a flashlight and thankfully it was printed on the sidewall, 26 x 1.
95. What was NOT printed on the sidewall is the direction the tire should be mounted. The tread pattern is directional, but has no arrow to show you the direction to mount it. I have never purchased a directional tire before that has no arrow on the sidewall! I called Bell and got a vague explanation.
I watched their installation video which mentions nothing about direction. I am not going to take the chance of installing the tire backwards, they are going back to Wal Mart. Poor execution Bell Products!.
To start this tire is a 26×1. 95 now with that being said it is a universal tire. I have two different sized rims on my mountain bike 1. 50 rear and 2. 25 front. I bought two of these tires and they fit my rims perfectly.
With this tire on a smaller rim it makes the tire slightly taller and vis-versa for a wider rim. Which doesn’t effect the ride-ability. Now I’ve used Bell tires for many years and get great life out of them.
The only issue I’ve had is dry rot from not riding enough and storing outdoors. These new tires are super sturdy and have good tread on them should last me a few years. Only reason for a 4 star review is even though they are universal fit would’ve been nice to know the actual size.
This workhorse of a tire is comfortable enough to take on a touring adventure and stable enough to take off-road. Use for comfort riding, commuting, bike paths and roads. Profile ensures positive contact with hard surfaces.
Dense, linked tread with independent outside knobs allows good dirt adhesion. From long distance touring to light-duty offroading, this tire offers impeccable handling that won’t let you down. Dense linked center tread allows the tire to roll fast.
Light-duty trail and comfort tire. Model # W010-0359. Features: For long distance touring to light duty offroading, this tire offers impeccable handling For moist to dry conditions on hardpack or pavement.
My satisfaction with this purchase is not just with the tire listed above. I’m very satisfied with all the parts, labor and expertise from the Repair Shop. I recently had my Trek 930 in for a very needed tune up.
My old reliable ride was in need of some TLC and needed a new drive train, tires and several cables. The biking season is nearly over for my. But, I was able to get out for a ride after the tune up and my bike rides and operates like new! Thanks REI Bike Shop! I can’t wait to get my bike out more regularly next spring.
I bought this product Sept 2016 (it is April 2017). I put 958. 1 recorded miles on them, and had them set up with ghetto tubeless for 98% time. WTB All Terrain are nice tires if the terrain isn’t too gnarly.
If you’re putting these on an adventure/gravel bike, you might want to consider a larger width tire. However, they work well for cyclocross riding, with their narrow profile. As stated before, they do work with tubeless.
However, you will find that they weep and leak sealant. a lot! My tires were usually coated in gunk from the sealant collecting dirt. If you can get over that, than they’re pretty worth it to set up tubeless.
My only complaint comes at the end of these tire’s lives. I was riding home, and experiencing a lot of leaking air from my tubeless rig. Turns out I had a puncture in the sidewall that Stan’s No Tubes wouldn’t seal.
While pumping the tire up, I noticed a huge kink in my tire line. It was as if someone grabbled my tire on the rim and tried turning it 30 degrees. I came to find out that the tread came apart from the casing of the actual tire, resulting in a final blow to the tire.
I had to retire them. I would suggest these only for commuting, really. They’re pretty light tires, but that is a result of the overall thin tire.
The schwalbe big apple began the balloonbike trend back in 2001. Comfortable cycling without the need for expensive technology. At the time it was a revolutionary idea. Today it is a growing trend and there is now a large selection of balloonbikes with everything designed around the big apple.

I bought these to stick them on an MTB that just goes on road trips now, really nice to ride with great cornering performance too. Plus they look good. Really happy with Tredz too, really easy to order and came a few days later in a full sized box, not with the tyres all folded over on themselves.
These are easy to love – they’re smooth, look good, feel good with the ride quality, and they have good puncture resistance. I only use MUP’s and occasionally i pull a trailer (i can’t carry anything on this tiny thing).
My trailer’s cheap tyres pick up punctures (usually thorns), these Schwalbe Big Apples on the bike never do. So the comparison there is quite absolute. My only criticism isn’t really a criticism but worth noting – they don’t inspire great confidence in greasy conditions.
In the dry they grip very, well but again, there’s that uncertainty in knowing how well they’re going to do, compared to a thinner, harder tyre. When things get slippery though, they’re very on/off, you can’t get away with sliding them about in corners like a traditional shopper tyre.
These tires are great for pavement use. I recently replaced my mtb tires for these big apple. You can immediately feel the difference in comfort and reduced rolling resistance in these tires. Im a heavy rider so comfort was important to me.
Very happy with these tires and will will replace with the same times when these do eventually wear out.
Our most versatile XC tread The Ikon is for true racers looking for a true lightweight race tire. With 3C Triple Compound Technology, high-volume casing and a fast rolling tread design, the Ikon provides exemplary performance in all riding conditions.
As its name suggests, the Ikon represents all that is true in racing.
This tire is so fast!! Wonderful for climbs and flats. A little sketchy in fast corners, but you can’t have all the grip with an XC tire. Have hit some very rough rock gardens and the tires have held up really well, no punctures on even the roughest sharp rocks.
Have been using for front and rear, but will probably switch to a knobbier front for more grip. This tire on the front washes out on looser pack surfaces in the turns at speed which can be a bit sketchy– but let’s be real you’re not buying XC tires for downhill or enduro :p.
Very fast rolling. This is obviously not going to grip like a downhill tire but the grip it has seems consistent as you lean into turns. Wanted a high volume fast roller for mellower desert riding with a lot of sand washes.
The 2. 35 Ikon fits the bill, plus it’s light. 26” offerings are limited so I’m happy to have found this good of a tire to keep an old Titus Switchblade cruising.
The Ikon is a standard in the XC tire world. The narrow casings roll fast and get the job done but to me the Ikon 2. 35 is the absolute bees-knees. The 2. 35 width opens up beautifully for lots of volume and also scales up the knob structure just enough to punch pretty far into the trail bike category.
Pairs well as a rear with something larger up front or pushes dirt like a king as a front on your cross-stuntry maching.
Looking for an excellent hard-pack tire to take your XC bike game to the next level? Fast accelerating, hard – pack cross-country tire. Numerous knobs provide multiple contact points with the ground; while having semi-slick speed.
Front and Rear application. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Bought this tires to replace older cracked MTB tires for a bicycle I use for urban cycling. Old tires had deeper profile more suited for mud. This tires are great, riding is smoother, faster and also almost silent.
Just what I wanted, and price, shipping is very resonable, thank you.
Made two separate purchases for the tires and made sure to pay for two separate shipping so the tires would be shipped separate. As individual tires they fell under the amount taxable to be sent to my country.
They shipped together even though I paid for the two separate shipping. Cost me $36 more in taxes because they wanted to save on their end for shipping. It only cost the amount I paid to ship one tire, so they pocketed about 11 and I had to pay additional taxes on the combined purchase.
Such a pain, if I could find this size tires locally I would have rather done that.
Hardtail 1×10. 190 lb rider. Sealant Compatible (tubeless with Stan’s or Orange Seal) is worth the weight to me. They mounted easily and don’t lose air. I typically run 20-24psi up front and 25-30psi in the back on Arch rims.
Never had a burp. I have lost the front tire a few times while cornering in dry stuff. An X-King is going on the front in the spring. The lack of rolling resistance is incredible coming off of Nevegals for 8 years.
DTC is no joke. I have several hundred road and trail miles and they look awesome. These things are scary in most wet (offroad) conditions. Our trails aren’t open when it’s wet, so it’s not an issue for me.
PROS: Easy To Install, Durable, Low Rolling Resistance, Lightweight CONS: Cornering Grip, Corners Poorly, Turning Grip BEST USES: Rear Tire, Racing.
Downhill with its completely new profile design are ideal for aggressive gravity driving the minion DHR II. With the page gallery of legendary minion DHF, the II applied to the DHR and were widened, the DHR clawing II like no other in the curve itself.
The flat angled means fool improve the acceleration, the grooves give a smooth transition at the turn. The paddle-shaped tunnel in the middle of burrow under hard braking and stabilize the bike. Front of the DHR is together with the minion DHF II the ultimate combination for fast track.
This tire is really great. I live in an area with sharp rocks, these evil rocks protrude into the trail and slash and tear the sidewalls of every tire except Maxxis. For some reason Maxxis tires like the minion are impenetrable by these sharp doom rocks.
I recommend Maxxis because I don’t like walking back to the car. Also it does the whole tubeless thing really well.
These tires came stock on my 2018 Rocky Mountain Solo 50. I’ve found them to provide great traction on the loose stuff and still be reasonable on the road. Unfortunately, after about 1,600, the rear tire started to develop bubbles i.
e. the thread is coming apart from the casing, during the second day of a 4 day bike packing trip. Put in a tube and a boot and was able to complete the trip without any issue, but now I’m getting ghosted by Maxxis’ Warranty department as the tire should be covered as it has plenty of thread left.
Bought this tire as my current ones were old and tired. Noticed improved traction right away! Highly recommended. Day 2 on the tires was a MTB class. Out of 13 bikes 10 had Maxxis tires! I said to someone that with so many folks riding MAXXIS the price should be lower but even with the price as it is a great product.
The Bell 26 Mountain Bike Tire with Air Guard protection is a smart choice for anyone who owns a compatible bike. Air Guard technology provides a protective layer with increased strength and extra puncture resistance.
Our mountain bike tires showcase a carbon steel bead for extra safety, and tire strength. They are extremely durable and built to stand up to the elements. The tall, knobby tread with superior traction is ideal for smooth trail to technical single-track riding, so you can enjoy your rides without worry.
Conveniently, these tires fold and unfold without damage, making them easy to transport from place to place. Bell tires are ultra-durable and made for adventure. The tires will stand the test of time, ride after ride.
This tire was a perfect fit. My order was well packaged and arrived a day early. The tires were a little big to start but as you begin to fill the inner tube with air and use tour hands to soften the rubber, it all falls into place nicely.
Not the first time I’ve used. Just mounted my latest after storage. A little awkward as tire wants to keep bent shape. Mounted, inflated and looks good. Hope to get more than ~1,500 miles before bald tire.
This is bad product. I put it on my rim and almost immediately it came off the rim when i rode my bike. The beads appear very weak, floppy and not firm. The 26 x 2 size should be right for my rims. I am not satisfied about the softness, lack of firmness, and floppiness of the tire beads.
I have to reinstall my old worn tires which have far more stiff beading. I will return this product for a refund.
Maxxis Minion DHF Mountain Tires The Standard in a trail-ready spec The Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight line control and precise cornering.
Tech Specs: Directional, ramped knob design front or rear Lightweight, single-ply casing.
The grip of the DHF is undisputed, so I’m not even going to address that here. If you’re ordering the 29 x 2. 5 dual compound tire, know that while the tire is foldable, the casing is the DH casing, which means it is HEAVY.
Two 60 TPI plies. That fact is not clear on EVO’s webpage at all, but that is not unique to EVO. I’ve seen other sellers doing the same. I have it mounted on a 29mm inner width rim and at it’s widest, it measures out as a 2.
5 from knob to knob. The carcass measures around 58mm at a normal riding pressure. You can get the carcass to measure 63mm by pumping it up to the max pressure of 50 psi. It might stretch out a bit if you leave it there for 48 hours.
Based on my (somewhat limited) experience with Maxxis, narrower than advertised is fairly typical for them. At any rate, being dual compound with a DH casing, this is a tire that I’ll be living with for quite a while.
One of the pros is that it is nearly indestructible, so I can feel free to slam into most anything. The DHF is one of those tires that comes in so many configurations that most anyone can find one that will put them in their happy place.
I’m a trail/XC rider and always opted for lighter faster rolling tires with their smaller closely spaced knobs, which have been good riding in damp woods. However, I’ve been riding a lot of very dry ‘loose over hard’ lately and losing the front end so figured I’d get something much more aggressive with big widely spaced knobs, like the well respected Minion DHF.
It definitely does dig in better, and I don’t notice the weight or increased rolling resistance in any consequential way. When I go back to riding in damp woods with slippery rocks, roots and moist soil, I’ll very likely go back to my previous tires, but for what I’m doing now, these are better than I expected.
BTW, Maxxis measures tire width across the knobs. Bike tire pneumatic performance is determined by the width of its carcass. The carcass of this nominally 2. 5″ width tire measures 2. 3″ on a my 30mm inner width rim.
In an effort to give the most honest review of these tires that I can it would probably be best to rundown the events leading to the installation of these Maxxis Minion DHF tires. The bike originally came equipped with WTB Trail Boss 29 x 2.
6 tires which were incredibly heavy and I found that I had an incredibly difficult time riding the bike. I tend to lean towards narrower tires. I purchased a set of CST Jack Rabbit 29 x 2. 1 tires which immediately brought the bike to life and suited my riding style very well.
We purchased these Maxxis Minion DHF tires for another bike and that is how I inherited them. With that said I installed the Maxxis tires on my bike and in my opinion it was a step backwards. These tires for me fall somewhere in between the WTB’s and CST’s.
They do have a lot of grip, maybe too much for me. I also felt every single thing on the trail and these tires reacted to it which for me made for an unstable ride. Although these are good tires and somewhat pricey I gave them 3 stars because the bottom line is the quality of the ride right? These tires may very well be what the doctor ordered for other riders.
If they were the only tires I had I would continue to use them. However given the choice the CST’s are the better option for me. I’ll keep the Maxxis Minions for spares.
The Minion DHF is the standard by which all other downhill tires are measured. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.
Bought to fit a spare set of 26” rims to install on my sons bike to get rid of the ridiculous 27. 5” rims it came with. I wanted wider tyres so it would look better in the frame but these are the same width as my 26×2.
2” on my own bike. If I new I would have bought 2. 5”. Also the coloured writing is only on one side for some reason?.
Expecting that I was going to have to grow an extra lung to ride these. Was totally not the case. The roll speed is very good for the sheer amount of traction they hold. You feel like Spiderman, glued to every trail.
The perfect equipment for dirt jumpers and street riders looking for a large-volume, stable and lightweight tyre. The large version of the proven Allround BMX tyre can be used universally for dirt jumps, street and city cruising.
TechnologiesWire bead core The bead core must hold the tyre securely on the rim. High-quality wire is very well suited for this – the disadvantages are: Not foldable and somewhat heavier (approx. 50g more).
MaxxProMaxxPro Compound is the first tyre compound for bicycle tyres in which the components have been extremely finely ground. This mixture is optimal from Allmountain to Downhill: More grip, good damping properties, long service life, low rolling resistance.
And no stud demolition – a success of the exclusive Maxxis MaxxPro technology.
I have a hard tail that I ride through the streets a lot. These are perfect for it. Bike rolls along smoothly with ease. Tires are good looking. You would probably want a different tire for dirt trails though.
The Blackburn 26 inch Mountain Bike Tire with Anti Puncture Technology is a smart choice for anyone who owns a compatible bike. Anti Puncture Technology provides a protective layer with increased strength and extra puncture resistance.
Our mountain bike tire features a carbon steel bead for extra safety, and tire strength. They are extremely durable and built to stand up to the elements. The tall, knobby tread with superior traction is ideal for smooth trail to technical single-track riding, so you can enjoy your rides without worry.
Conveniently, these tires fold and unfold without damage, making them easy to transport from place to place. Blackburn tires are ultra-durable and made for adventure. The tires will stand the test of time, ride after ride.
I pretty much use these on a MTB converted to street use, for daily transportation to work. To get a better quicker ride, for the better part of a decade I always went with & bought Kendra Kross Plus tires (a great cross between street & the occasional hard pack trail.
knobbies only on the sides). After going thru about half dozen of these (the Kenda’s), I decided to try something different with better/less rolling resistance which were these Michelin’s. The price was great & it looked more dedicated to street, with no thick knobbies.
Well, I was wrong. These tires and there side walls are very soft, no matter how many PSI you put into ’em they always ride/look as if they are low on air. Cornering at times (and Im not talking warp speeds, almost parallel to the ground), feels as if the tire is going to come off the wheel.
Also because the rubber/compound is so soft the rolling resistance is horrible compared to the Kendra’s I always used. What is shocking & dissapointing is I do use Michelins on my dedicated offroad MTB (I am a big “Wild Gripper hot S” fan), and they have always been stellar! I am just going to go back to using the Kendra Kross plus’s for my commuter, they are tried and true, and only double in price of these Michelins, which is still a bargain in $$.
PROS: Easy Mounting On Wheel, cheap CONS: Bad Cornering Side Walls, Side Walls Super Thin.
I’ve put about 2,000 miles on these and there is still tread left. I commute mostly on paved rail trail and some road. I just had my first flat a few weeks ago. A small piece of glass had worked it’s way through to the tube.
When I looked over the rest of the tire I found additional glass, a little piece of wire, and rocks also stuck in the tread. I don’t know how long it had all been in there, but the fact that only one thing made it through made me feel good about these tires.
They roll fairly fast for a 1. 75-inch width, too. I run them at about 60 psi on pavement, and would drop them to about 50 for gravel. PROS: Durable BEST USES: Road Biking, Casual Riding.
CONTINENTAL Tire Trail King 29 x 2. 60 PureGrip E-25 ShieldWall The Trail King is the ideal choice for all-mountain riders and alpine crossers. It offers a lot of grip on the trail and low rolling resistance, so that you can go on tours as relaxed as possible.
Due to its relatively large volume, it has very good self-damping properties and protects the driver from getting tired too quickly. The cheaper variant relies on the Contis PureGrip Compound and the new ShieldWallSystem, which provides puncture protection.
PureGrip Compound Based on the activated silica compound, a single-minded approach was taken towards a compound technology in the performance segment. The result of Continental’s research and development department in Korbach resulted in a new compound technology with excellent grip and cross-country skiing properties after intensive development efforts.
The new rubber compound with the self-explanatory name PureGrip joins Continental’s BlackChili Compound and is used in performance products in the race and mountain bike segments. Here it ensures long-lasting traction and high mileage of Continental tires, which are manufactured exclusively in the production facility in Hefei (Asia).
ShieldWall system The ShieldWall system combines the optimal combination of high puncture protection and the best smooth running with low weight. This is made possible by an additional, all-round puncture protection layer, which consists of a finely woven cross fabric.
This gives the tire a high level of resistance to punctures and injuries. Despite the additional layer, the tire has very good damping properties and is extremely flexible so that it can be perfectly adapted to the ground.
The revolutionary tubeless ready foot enables easy and uncomplicated assembly of the tire. Conti Revo-Sealant seals reliably.
I bought the trail King tire for the front of my wife’s bike to go along with the Cross King rear tire. She raves about the rolling ability of the new tires and front end grip. Sidewall construction seems to be good.
The Kenda Kiniption tire features a diamond shaped knob designed for 26″ BMX cruisers, dirt jumping, and urban assault style mountain riding. Bead to bead diamond tread. Color Black. Weight 840. ISO Width 58.
Labeled Size 26 x 2. 3. Intended Use Street-DJ. Defined Color Black. PSI 50. TPI 30.
Bought these for my wife’s bike, which mostly sees pavement and light dirt. Jenson price match was perfect as usual. Really impressed with the tires. Not a lot of options out there for 2. 3 size with this kind of tread.
Tires handle better than expected. Tread depth could stand to be a little deeper, but for the intended purposes, the tires are perfect. PROS: Size, Look, price, Handling CONS: Tread depth BEST USES: StreetUrban, Light trails.
Very heavy duty, stiff, sharp looking tire with a weight penalty mostly due to the wrap around tread pattern. Compound seems very hard and is BARELY showing signs of wear but its been hooking up good in corners.
PROS: Durable, Easy To Install, Attractive Design CONS: Heavy BEST USES: Upgrade, Cargo Bike.
Use this tire on my Commuter Bike which is an old Mountain Bike. Also use this tire on my street/urban bike. Extremely long lasting. Best used on dry terrain/pavement. PROS: LONG LASTING, Easy To Install, Durable, Can Take A High Psi CONS: Not For Wet Surfaces BEST USES: Street riding, Commutingcity, BMX, Casual Riding.
You’re not stopping anytime soonLegendary tyre designer Frank Stacy provides another race-proven mountain bike tyre design in the XR2. The value-minded and super-versatile XR2 Comp offers outstanding quickness and cornering stability on hard-packed or loamy cross country courses.
XR3 tyres: I have to say these were a pleasant revelation. I’ve used a fair variety of xc and trail tyres on occasionally dry through to often damp or wet trails inc rock and roots in Scotland. The XR3’s feel extremely quick rolling but handle everything I’ve been riding really well.
Mostly I’m on a mix of fire roads, made trail centre trails, natural singletrack and nudging into easy enduro trails on the tyres in all weather conditions so a full gambit of terrain. The XR3’s have a great blend of a very fast feeling tyre- as quick as an outright xc tyre in terms of feel ( I don’t have the comparison data for rolling resistance weight) with plenty of braking and cornering grip in most conditions.
The only trail conditions where I’ve found that they aren’t that great are: thicker or deeper mud and unsurprisingly icy snow. In fairness those are not the conditions the XR3s are really designed for.
Dry trails or wet but without thick mud they perform brilliantly. It’s a bit too early to comment on durability or puncture resistance as they have only done around 100km off road. I’ll update in a few months.
Purchased a Project One Emonda less than a year ago. Bike simply fell over in my garage onto my bike stand causing a small chip in the paint. What I thought was just a chip turned out to be a crack as well.
A bike of this caliber should not have cracked under this circumstance. Unfortunately, I’m not getting adequate support from customer service and I need to purchase a new frameset. After 25 years and a few dozen trek bikes I will no longer be purchasing or representing the brand.
I use this tire in Colorado and the grip is fantastic. The cornering and braking are super consistent and predicable. Not like the squirrely nature of those tires with a big gap between center knobs and sidewall.
The grip on this tire is something special in every kind of dry terrain: Hard pack, loose, rocky, dusty, dusty over rock. I have not spent enough time on it in wet conditions to offer an opinion on that.
The tread life seems surprisingly good considering the relatively short knobs. I HOPE TREK MONITORS THIS AND GIVES FEEDBACK TO THE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT TEAM: PLEASE make this tire in a true 2. 6 width with about 15-20% more knob height and extra casing protection for the Ultimate Trail Tire.

We bought these replacements for my son’s mountain bike and I really like them. I like the size as I wanted something a little wider than the 1. 95 the bike came with and I thought the 2. 125 might be too wide so the 2.
1 is just the right width. The tread pattern is a good in between also, not to knobby but some grip. I laid them out overnight to let the shape come back in and then you have to work with them a bit to get them on the rims but really nice tires overall and a great price.
These tiers are simply the best because they don’t get damaged that easily like other brands do, or like the tiers that new bicycles are come with. GoodYear is a good brand when buying any kind of their products, and probably the best quality that you can find for a fair price.
This tiers are made of a really good material that you don’t have to fill them with air too often (because they resist low and high temperatures).
There are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for a new mountain bike tire. First, consider the terrain you’ll be riding on most often. If you stick to groomed trails, a tire with shorter, closely spaced knobs is probably a good choice.
For more aggressive riding or loose, rocky terrain, a tire with taller, widely spaced knobs will provide more grip and stability. Second, think about the width of the tire. A wider tire will provide more traction and stability, but may be more difficult to maneuver in tight turns.
A narrower tire will be lighter and easier to maneuver, but may not provide as much traction and stability. Lastly, consider the amount of tread wear you’re willing to tolerate. A tire with softer rubber compound will wear down faster, but provide better grip, while a tire with harder rubber compound will last longer but may not provide as much grip.
Ultimately, the best tire for you is the one that strikes the right balance of traction, stability, weight, and durability for the way you like to ride.
