Great all season trail tire

Posted24 February 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Great all season trail tire. Good up to the point it gets a bit to buddy.
Great tire but if there was one bad point it would be tire wall strength when your hammering on more tech trail. But the there is always the protection version for a little more cash..

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, mud clearance
I bought one of these to replace my old Mountain King Tyre on the rear. The sizes do seem to have changed so I went with the 2.4 to go with my old 2.2 which is on the front. Both tyres measure up the same size. Used it in Sherwood Forest this weekend with iced over puddles and lots of boggy sections,sand, slime from the old mine slurry pits and mud...Run it at 30psi and It found grip in 95% of the sections and just works. This was NOT riding Sherwood Pines trail centre but in the forestry trails round Thieves Wood, Harlow Wood and Randsom Woods. Possibly one of the best tests for a tyre in the area. Fully recommended.

Excellent trail tyres

Posted14 July 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: look cheap
Conti's Mountain King II is almost the perfect compromise between weight and puncture proof, grip and rolling resistance, price and features. They are not XC race tyres, neither are they All Mountain tyres, they sit in the middle ground, they roll just fine, but when you push them hard, they just keep gripping and when they finally let go they are predictable. The 2.2 are quite narrow for the stated size, but the confidence they generate is similar to a 2.4 DH tread. All in all, the perfect compromise for wet, gravelly, muddy, hardpack Welsh trails!

Update to well proven series I

Posted15 May 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Having had good experiences with series I of this tyre equally pleased with this version so far. Have proven to be good allrounders in a variety of conditions. Not convinced by slight weight benefit of wireless for twice the cost - fortunately Evans price matching brought to a more palatable cost
