Strength:

wide for a 2.1, all good. Very stable carcass, wont fold over under high load. Nice round tread profile for confident grip transitioning from starights to turns. resonably light. puncture resistant.
My favorite tire :)

Weakness:

None for me other than its hard to find this tire.

No desire to test anyother tire, this is my fave.

Strength:

none.

Weakness:


beware front end wash outs! Wide Wide spacing on knobs means loose loose skids.


If you bought the Kona and were unlucky enough to get them on those lightweight disk rims... , just swap them right at the dealer for something that you know works. I'd bought my bike and on the way home I thought I'd take a little warm up ride for a break in / adjust session. [ this said, it means I was riding easy on new components ] So I'm back with the Kujo DH's [heavy but relieable] on an otherwise almost perfect factory ride. [ ok, swap that aheadset for a Chris King too...]

I had to post a note about this - they're damm slick and don't belong on Kona product.

Marko   Cross Country Rider [Nov 25, 2004]
Strength:

Quite a thick casing, so punctures would be rare in theory.

Weakness:

These tyres wash out on most surfaces. They are the biggest 2.1 tires I have come across (is that a weakness??)

In my first 5 rides on these tires I managed to ride in 4 differant locations, each with differant trail conditions - slick hardpacked clay, loamy volcanic soil (in heavy rain), mud, and hardpack sand. The only time I felt completely safe while cornering was while riding on the hard sand. In all other conditions it was a real battle to stay upright. Mud clearing was a problem also, and only seamed to happen at high speeds.

I also found I was having to work a bit harder to keep up with my riding companions, the rolling restistance seams to be quite high.

Now I did get these tires as a spot prize so I can't complain about getting ripped off, but they did cause me to have a number of rides that were less than enjoyable. not good!

tom   Racer [Oct 13, 2004]
Strength:

Good all around tire. Does'nt pinch flat too easy. Good in mud. Not too heavy. Good tread life (mine are not the pro version)

Weakness:

It rolls kinda slow, but it grips well.

This is just a great trail bike tire. I weigh 185lbs and run the back at 35lbs and the front at like 30lbs and I rarely pinch flat. If you're looking for a good all around trail bike tire, I highly recommend these.

Scott   Cross Country Rider [Aug 05, 2004]
Strength:

Huge casing for a 2.1, light weight for size. looks cool

Weakness:

more pronounced edging knobs would be nice

The first ride I had these the front wanted to wash out on me. The trails around here are hardpack with occasional loamy sections, and a lot of gravelly topcoat. After the waxy mold coating wore off, and having played with pressures, they worked a lot better, letting me carve corners tightly and not getting overly upset with the gravellt topcoat. I'm using it as a front tyre, with a Red Phoenix on the back. I picked it up cheap as someone had swapped it off a new bike.
