    This tyre is super quick and got me over some tricky sections on a black trail at Harcourt (Australia) that I have spun the back wheel and dabbed a foot in the past. Came off a bonty xr4 which I thought was good but this is way better.

    I run a minion dhf 2.5 on the front and this is a great combo.

    Highly recommend

    Pros
    Great grip
    Really quick
    Not as bad to set up as some others seem to say

    Cons
    Maybe a bit heavy and getting over the rim took levers but neither 'con' a major thing

    Buy the dern things. Dont talk yourself out of it because of the price. Well, well worth it

    Pros
    Um, whats rolling resistance? There is none. Set a PR, on a CLIMB, by 2mins. Went from 10:09 to 8:01. Like for real? Yes, for real. Had a kenda nevegal 2.1, which now I realize is complete trash. Im riding the Conti TrailKing 2.4 Black Chili with Protection sidewalls on the front. The back needs replacing, but currently have a kenda honey badger 2.2. Im telling yall, this tire is exactly as described on the downhill, but climbing is way better. Ive had the kendas and WTB velociraptors, and these roll like drag slicks but grip like monster truck tires. Best purchase Ive made

    Cons
    Have no idea how long theyll last. Still have tabs on them after 10 miles, which isnt anything at all, but Ive rrad some bad reviews saying theyve broken off after one ride. Must be the cheaper version made in India. Not the German made black chili compound with protection. Ran them about 30 psi? May go a tad lower next time

    None

    Pros
    TractionTractionTraction! Fast going down, confident corners!

    Cons
    Not too heavy but not light. Tougher long climbs.
