Strengths:    Very fast with their low rolling resistance.

Weaknesses:    Cornering in loose terrain, and on hard pavement.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased this set of tires after reading the other reviews and thinking I'd take a gamble. I loved the acceleration and the snapiness on the trail. What I didn't love was the feeling that the tires wanted to wash out in loose rocks, sand, hard pavement (ate it in a corner pulling into my driveway). The SuperSonic version is prone to punctures (never had a pinch flat). I would say these may be more ideal for racing. The tread compound wears faster that other tires I've run in the past but I'm just now replacing them after a year and monthly rotation Front to Rear.

Conti Speed King Supersonic

Has anybody raced on these things. They seem nice and light, but maybe a little lacking in toughness. I'd be running them on ztr355 and tubeless. I'm not so concerned with long term wear, but more with race day durability.Read More »
