Our review

A predictable tyre that fares well in most conditions
Skip to view product specifications

The tread design of the Mountain King is designed to hook up in a variety of conditions and comes in several casing options including the lightweight Supersonic Tubeless, and in 2.2in and 2.4in sizes.

Our UST versions took several swearing outbursts to fit. [The steel-core tyre levers are under your desk Doddy – Ed]

The tread pattern is directional for front and rear wheels, and is formed of small wedges – this makes them roll and clear quickly – although they suffer in the wet because the small knobbles tend to slice through, rather than dig in. 

The profile of the casing is very round – there are no defined shoulders to dig in on the turns. As a result the tyres feel great on hard surfaces, but struggle on anything wet or loamy.

But the fact that this tyre fares well in most conditions is a big plus – if you want a middle-of-the-road tyre that’s pretty good at most things – this could be it.
