Predictable grip for days - Nov 08, 2015

1 2 3 4 5
5 out of 5 stars
Austin, TX

These tires have enormous volume and thick carcass to provide superbly predictable grip across a wide variety of terrain and conditions. I am 6'3", 235 pounds and run the 2.4" up front at 31-33 PSI and the 2.2" in the back at 35-38 PSI depending on terrain and conditions. These carcasses are tanks! Super tough, but way lighter than I expected. I chewed through a couple thorny mesquite branches and cactus pads before going tubeless using 1.75"-2.2" tubes (I know, I know) at 25 PSI with NO ISSUES. There is so much volume in these, I thought the tube would give out if I went any higher pressure. First time out with these tires, it had just lightly rained. Central Texas limestone and trail rocks get super slick when wet. The black chili compound ate every thing uphill and back down. Dry to dusty singletrac, check. Slick rocky and rooty trails, check. Light mud, check. Heavy mud and super sloppy conditions, terrible tire choice. They swallow mud in sloppy conditions but clean fairly well. They are 2.4", so you should go with the MudKing if consistently riding super slop. For the trails I ride around Austin and central Texas, these tires are money ESPECIALLY when run tubeless. Took me a couple tries to get the bead seated well, but my wheels are not tubeless ready. Once seated, they have been pretty good at keeping pressure. Conti can be hit-or-miss depending on manufacturing location. These are black chili compound, made in Germany. Your search for the perfect new shoes for your steed has ended. Get these and prepare for awesome. Seriously, stop reading and go turn some cranks with these tires, but be prepared to smile for days.

My Favorite tire - Nov 02, 2015

Augusta, GA

This is a great fast rolling tire. I immediately felt a difference the first ride with these tires. I set a new PR on the first ride on my favorite trail and i'm hooked. This is not great in really muddy conditions, but i ride through a lot of small wet spots just fine.

Great "Get-it-all" Tire - Oct 31, 2015

1 2 3 4 5
5 out of 5 stars
Atascadero, CA

These are my go-to tires for riding here in the dry, rocky, and often loose conditions around San Luis Obispo. I have ventured out and tried others, just to add a bit of variety to life, but I keep coming back. I can't call them a "do-it-all" tire since I rarely ride in the mud and I haven't seen a slippery root in a long time, but I will call these a "get-it-all" tire: they offer incredible traction, (from hard pack to very loose), serious durability, high volume, competitive weight, and all at a reasonable price. Any time I try a different tire, I feel like I have to give up something, and usually at a higher price. These tires have a higher profile which I really love. Not only does this provide a "cushier" ride, but it also sits taller. I ride a 26" Ibis HD and the size of the tires near that of 27.5 wheels with a lower profile tire. Additionally, the footprint is wider than other tires of the same size or even smaller. Could these be the original plus size?! The only issue I have had with these tires is a little bit of "warble" in the rear tire when hitting high speed turns, particularly on hard pack, off-camber stuff. The higher profile nature of the tire will give a little when pushed in this way. Paying particular attention to psi is critical, as I've found that a few pounds in either direction seems to really change the personality of the tire. This is probably true for a lot of tires, but is particularly true with a higher profile tire like the Trail King. I run the non-UST version to save some weight and they mount up tubeless with little issue using a compressor. They go on easily, using just your hands. It seems to me that mounting these with a floor pump would be a bit of a challenge since the fit isn't super tight (at least on my e*thirteen TRS+ wheels).

Trail King 2.4 black chilly - Jul 06, 2015

1 2 3 4 5
5 out of 5 stars
Coal Creek Canyon, CO

This review is for the 2.4 black chilly compound with protection. This tire is BIG, the volume is amazing, it hooks up well and is very tuff. I have this on the front of a 6" suspension bike, run tubeless. I run it around 28 lbs and weigh in around 195 with gear. In 8 months I have not had a flat or a burp and the tread looks great, the side walls show scars but no tears or puntures. I have used it in Moab, Sedona Az and at home in the mountains of colorado and find it a great all around tire. If I can ever wear out my panaracer fire on the back I will replace it with a trail king. Just a heads up it can be a pain to set the bead the first time tubeless.

Confidence inspiring tire. Great wear life and great grip. Able to withstand the sharp rocks of AZ better than any other tire I've used.

Does the job. - Apr 13, 2015

Pflugerville, TX

I started to use the Trail King as a rear tire on my bike, we have a decent amount of rock gardens in Texas and tearing a tire is common. Anyhow I've been using this for a couple of months now off recommendations from friends and it takes a beating! I did run it tubeless which took a couple of days to get it to seal. It's all good now!

Nice! - Aug 11, 2014

Bozeman, MT

High volume casing, durability, a nice sticky compound and a great tread pattern make these a good all conditions tire. I run tubes and pressures around 25psi and hardly ever flat, so the sidewalls must be strong. downsides: heavier, not a super fast roller (but faster than hans dampfs or a maxxis minion probably).

Just buy them - Jun 09, 2014

Eugene, OR

Trail Kings rock! Great traction in the wet, roll well in the dry. Cornering is excellent, never had them break away on me. The 2.4 is HUGE and is an excellent front tire if you don't mind the weight. I'd be running it on the rear too if it fit in my frame. The 2.2 does fine in back though, the lighter weight helps with acceleration and climbing.

Great all around tire - Apr 23, 2014

1 2 3 4 5
5 out of 5 stars
TUALATIN, OR

The Trail King is a great all around tire. It sheds the mud of the NW well, provides great traction on soft loam and hard pack, it rolls quick enough to be ridden as a front and rear tire, and has great sidewall support. The Black Chilli compound of this tire will last much longer than expected while still providing the grip of a soft compound. The protection sidewalks are stiff and provide great support. I usually run a 2.4 in the front at 22-25 psi and a 2.2 on the rear at 25-27 psi. This is a great tire and you can buy 2 for the price of one of some competitive tires, and this one will last longer. A great investment.
