AD Always like these tyres, excellent mud grip, pretty puncture resistant.
Mr williamson An excellent , tough and lightweight tyre. Running well on front end of my Scott Scale, low rolling resistance and good grip.
Mr Costello Great product and great price from Merlin Cycles. Bought a pair to convert to tubeless on Mavic XM319 rims using Gorilla Tape. Success! Recommended.
parkes Great tyres fast rolling and good all round grip. The mountain king has slighly more open tread than the trail king and is a little smaller for the same size, better in mud and great price.
Mr Niven Had an older protection version which has a too porous side wall, although other brands were similarly just as porous; I know tubeless ready meant not full UST and thus porous, but I really hated setup with all the previous tires. Got the most recent Trail and Mountain King protection tires from Merlin. Amazingly outstanding! NO sealant leaked from bead or sidewall, bead seated fast, and tire holds air without sealant, something it was technically designed not to do. I will never use another tire brand now since no one else compares. Thanks Merlin!!!! Remember, only the protection versions are tubeless ready with a UST "style" bead.
YB Really great all round tire. Holds air pretty well with tubeless setup even though the sidewall weep. My go-to commuter tire - lasts about 5000km with a combination of tar and berg.
K Ok, bit disappointed with the size , chose these as looking for something a bit faster rolling then my previous 2.2 Conti Trail Kings...these are really skinny in comparison so have very little volume., probably better with 2.4 which would be more like 2.2. trail kings and 2.2 of other brands
ogden Tough all round tyre
Benn joseph What a fantastic tyre. It was so very easy to go tubeless with. Will be getting more of these in the future.
Jason Great service and best price I found for these tyres. You can feel the quality and toughness of them as soon as you fit them. Although I've not taken it for a 'proper' hard ride, yet, what I have done has left me very satisfied with it. Thank you, Merlin Cycles, for great service yet again.
Mr Molyneux These are excellent tyres especially off road, not get a better tyre for the money.
Steve Replaced tyres on my new Giant mountain bike with these. With previous tyres (Schwalbe Racing Ralph) I would get a puncture on each outing! Have only been out twice so far on the Continental tyres and not had a punctures. Time will tell but it's looking good. The Racing Ralph tyres did handle a bit better but I would rather have a more puncture resistant tyre. Also, a great price from Merlin.
Mr pace I run these and all my tyres Tubeless. These were easy to mount and run tubeless with some continental liquid in them. They hold air well. I ran Mountain Queens on a previous bike and they were slightly wider than these 2.2's and felt like they had slightly better performance than these tyres. Having said that they are light fast rolling and grip quite well
Mr Matthews A low profile 650b tyre with good grip and puncture protection. Has excellent clearance in the rear of a (650b converted) 2012 giant reign 26er. Profile is quite narrow, but this is what I was chasing. Having a really hard time mounting this tubeless to my sun ringle rims though as the casing is really stiff. Will try stretching it with a tube over a few days. 5 stars otherwise.
Mr Frater Decent tyres - good grip on soft ground - not great on wet rocks though. Seem solid and puncture proof, quite narrow vs other 2.2 tyres. Good for a rear tyre in the winter. Not great as a front tyre.
Mr while Good traction and quite fast rolling. Sidewalls are quite thin and flexible though.
Matt They've handled everything that's been thrown at them so far, including muddy conditions. I ride on the flinty South Downs and I've had no punctures as yet! Great tyres and the best price at Merlin Cycles too.
Mr Hudson Had the 26" mountain king's on my last bike but these feel much more positive with the added benefit of puncture protection. Much faster than the standard tyres that came with the bike. Good all round upgrade option. Well happy to date with great price and service from Merlin as usual.
