These are excellent tyres especially off road, not get a better tyre for the money.
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.
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
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.
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.
Good traction and quite fast rolling. Sidewalls are quite thin and flexible though.
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.
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.
