This Queen combined with your choice of UST/Rigida/Nagesti rim will form an airtight chamer doing away with the need for a tube, therefore saving weight and making pinchflats impossible. With lower tyre pressures possible the tread can adapt to the ground quicker than conventional tyre and tube combinations giving a smoother ride. The Black Chilli compound gives extremely low rolling resistance and excellent grip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by loz85 1 puncture in 4 years with no sealant
These tyres ahve been great, I've been running them tubeless for 4 years with no sealant and they have been awesome! I've had one puncture in one of the two tyres.
They are gripy but have worn really well.
Bit steep but end up being worth it

I'm running a UST 2.2 up front. It was easy to fit on a Stans Flow EX rim, seated perfectly first time. I have put in 60ml stans fluid to be safe, however it did stay up without it for a few days at a time.
The overall quality of the tyre is excellent. The black chilli compound feels strong and tacky. The side walls appear strong. The 2.2 size is reasonably wide, high volume.
Grip has been great. As I said I run it up front and I've yet to lose traction. I've tried it on hard pack and sloppy mud and it's been great on both. Just as good in the wet.
The only downside is the price. However for the overall build quality and grip I'd be willing to pay the same again

Rated 4 out of 5 by hitinui Great grip but a little bit on the heavy side
i just got one of these this week, witch i use as my rear tire
rolls very well on most surface type very grippy even on the side knobs
i run it tubeless and it was a breeze ton install (it took me all of 5 minutes)
the only "issues" i have with this tire is that it is a bit on the large and heavy side
it look biger than my WTB moto that i have in front it is much heavier than the maxxis crossmark 2.25 that i had before
and last the tire is so grippy that you'll have to fight against it on steap climbs
other than that it is a very nice tire

I've had a pair of the UST Rubber Queens for about 6 months now and i would totally recommend them. I run them tubeless on a pair of stans flow ex rims and they're awesome tyres. I went for the 2.2's which turn out to be a fairly big volume tyre (the 2.4's must be massive!), especially on my rims which are quite wide. They grip suprisingly well in all weathers, yet they still manage to roll incredibly well too. And i've noticed very little wear in that time. Prior to these i ran a pair of maxxis minion DHF and they felt like i was riding on glue, they dragged so badly! They may be quite pricey but believe me, you won't be disappointed! Oh and tubeless is the way forward too!

So easy to set up tubeless . I think it took me about 5 minutes on a mavic 517 .
rolls so well and tracks like a dream . I have a 2.4 on rear and have taken it down so rocky tracks and hit it hard but no burping and running 28 psi..

I have the 2.2 UST black chilli compound and it is big, bigger volume than most large 2.4 tyres. the grip is staggering and it feels so stable even when leaned over and pushed hard with fairly low pressure but it rolls so fast it doesnt made sense. It was easy to fit on the rim, The black chilli is soft but wears really well and can handle anything the loose stuff, wet rocks, roots, it is expensive but performs outstandingly. By far the best all rounder I have ever used and i have tried a few! Buy it and you will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Best tyre yet
I've tried plenty of tyres from most of the top brands but this blows them all out of the water. My local trails range from loose over hard, sandy, loamy and even a bit muddy at times. These tyres just keep on hanging on and when you do push them too far they let you know when they're about to let go.
