Rated 4 out of 5 by eth0ss Great tubless tire
I have now install these on my easton ea70, lovely tires and a snug fit. I inflated them once and worked perfectly. The tread pattern has great traction on my local hard pack and significant improvement to speed on the climbs. They come up quite narrow, the 2.25" is more like a 2.1" and actual weights are more like 0.47kg. I am running this in the rear with stans. But the sidewalls are thin and damage easily if you ride anywhere with rocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maxben Ottimo grip e tenuta
Anche la stabilità è garantita dai fianchi abbastanza consistenti - ottima al posteriore su terreni scorrevoli e battuti (è solo 1,85)

My 0.02: I love these, especially on the front. They let you know when grip is going so much more than Nobby Nics or others. NN I found would dump you on transitions, especially on loose stuff unless you run thm half flat. I can run them a bit harder and I trust them which is what counts in my book. I've had no durability issues, done dozens of hours on one set, pacestar compound....

Rueda ligera, de agarre aceptable para el tamaño de los tacos. En serio buena tracción. Probada en Galicia la tierra de la lluvia y el barro. Yo la llevo detrás y sin prblemas. Muy rodadora.

After ordering these I read a lot of really average reviews. These RRs are the new version and would seem to be entirely different from the old (poorly reviewed ones).
Inflated first time with Zero hassle. really light, loads of grip. No tyre is perfect everywhere but these are fast rolling, grippy and great for trail type use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great all rounder
I use the 2.25 tyre as a front tyre on both my Scott Spark 30 and 20 and I feel confident in pointing the bike exactly where I want to go from new through to medium wear. My environment consists of a lot of dry, rocky, sandy through to firm terrain.
Plus: Fast light and fun tyre, they handle things well.
Weaknesses: the rubber compound is way too soft to be used around my area on the rear wheel they just do not last. Once the side nobs are worn my confidence drops off quickly, which is a shame as the centre nobs still look reasonable.
