Strength:

Nice balance between grip and speed for XC trails. I came from the Bontrager XR1 and there is an even trade off of speed and grip.

Weakness:

I have minimal tubeless experience so I don't have anything to compare it to, but it loses 5psi or so between rides, which is a fairly large percentage. But then again this may be normal for tubeless.

It seems like the issue of losing knobs has been fixed.

I have the 29x2.2 Protection model and they are great set up tubeless. I air them up to 30-35psi for my ride and a week later they will have dropped 5psi or so, but who doesn't check their pressure before every ride?

I believe the negative aspects that people have posted previously have been fixed (the knobs falling off) and tubeless issues mentioned previously are just a bad combination of wheel and tire or they are running a conversion setup instead of true TLR/UST.

Strength:

Fast rolling

Weakness:

Pain to set up tubeless. Took about a month before they would hold air more than a couple of days. Leaked out the sidewall. Do not grip well. Feel like the front end is going to wash out.

I would not recommend and will not buy again.

Strength:

Does roll fast

Weakness:

Will not hold air. Sidewall appears tough but nothing you do will make it hold air. When they are inflated and you spray soapy solution it foams all around and also shoots sealant out in spots with pin holes.

Tire is pretty much useless as a tubeless tire. Very disappointed and will never purchase another Continental Tire again.

Strength:

used as rear tire only. fast roller. side walls are tough looking. i ride all over las vegas desert and the grip is ok. slips more than ignitor or nevegal but not bad.

Weakness:

tubeless is very questionable. Does not hold air for more than a day or two. Soapy solution revealed air leaks through the side wall (same with mountain king). Chunked about 75% of the side knobs with less than 100 miles.

very disappointed. i'm using it with a tube now after about 75 miles and i just want it to go away. I have used bontrager tires with no sealant and they have held air longer. never buying continental tires again
