Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous simply brilliant tyres
had these on for about 18 months in 26 x 2.1,i do a mixture of commuting,trail riding and blasting round llandegla,in nearly all types of weather and conditions.never had a puncture and i've ran out of bottle and leg power before i've ran out of grip in all conditions.even when nearly bald.they were a bit squrimy in wet mud but very predictable,possibly down to my high tyre pressures more than anything.these roll so easy,its like running road tyres.i've just fitted some maxxis high rollers in the same width after some friends advise but they aren't as wide and don't feel anywhere near as grippy and don't roll anywhere near as well as these,so i've ordered another set.

I don't normally bother reviewing stuff, frankly couldn't normally be bothered but I have had nothing but trouble since I bought these.
I reckon I've averaged a puncture 1 in 5 rides.
Only consider them if there on special offer - buy 1 tyre, get 10 inbertubes free!

Stock tyres on my new bike. I don't buy kenda due to past puncture problems, these are no exception. 8 flats in 10 rides, all from thorns, 3 in one ride!. Grip is OK, poor in mud but not made for it, good rolling speed. Showing signs of wear 200 miles in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tire
My cx bike came with this tire, I have over 3500 miles this year, of commuting, touring, camping, and even cyclocrossing on them. They have never had a flat, but are finally due for replacement. They grip like mad in everything but deep sand and mud, they are light enough to be fast, flexy enough to grip on the road. I ride with a 22 mph paceline sometimes. Buy these tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous buy it!
use it for commuting - suprisingly fast on road for a "cross" tyre and gives me the flexibility to hit a trail at the weekend. Bought a pair because of the price. Done a few hundred miles on them and love them
