What customers say about "Key Specs"
Kenda K850 Aggressive MTB Wire Bead Bicycle Tire, Blackskin
  • These are a great tire, obviously more suited for rugged terrain and they work very well for that.
  • Decently low rolling resistance in the street due to a semi-continuous center rib.
  • They ride smooth on pavement and give me twice the grip on lose dirt that I couldn't get on the stock tires.
  • Very aggressive tread pattern. Good grip going up trails, even after heay rain.
  • I did have problems with this tire on solid rock, and rocky surfaces especially if wet.
Continental GatorSkin DuraSkin Tire 2-Pack
  • Rolling resistance and weight is quite good. I have gone four years without a flat on these tires.
  • These tires are strong and reliable.
  • I didn’t find them so hard to get onto my wheels. The grip and rolling resistance is noticeably nice.
  • They give such great piece of mind without added bulk or compromise, highly recommended!
  • The biggest issue with these tires is they are *very* difficult to install. I struggled to get them seated and resorted to using tire levers to get the final strip of bead onto the rim.
