Fast fast fast! Great alternative to a dedicated slick tire.

I've been using these tires for 2 months on my 90's vintage mountain bike set-up as a commuter. I'm putting about 80 miles a week on them and I'm absolutely delighted with the performance. A number of reviewer's complained about how they pick up small stones between the treads. This was true for about the first 50 miles but once the tread sharpness wears a little it stops happening. Car tires do the same thing - no big deal. My only negative is that I should have bought the narrower version. There's a lot of extra girth in the 2.0 that isn't really necessary for the amount of road riding I'm doing. But, that's on me!

Like the high pressure for commuting

It's been hard to find reasonably priced high pressure tires of this size.

Very good tires, hold up well, puncture resistant even with standard tubes.

I uses these strictly for commuting. About an 18 mile round trip to work.

Would recommend to a friend!

I've been doing a lot more street riding on my Mtn bike lately and wanted to liven it up a bit. These tires are great on the road and still wide enough to not have at worry about popping a tube when hopping curbs.

Excellent city riding tires for the price and up to 85 psi which I wanted

I wanted to fit my rims and get 85 psi so the riding is easier. I also wanted a tread pattern that was for city riding and didn't make a lot of noise on pavement. Excellent value.

The right city tires for your MTB

I use these tires on my MTB for 2 evening rides (about 20 mi long) per week on, for the most part, smooth asphalt. They roll very easily, have enough grip on either dry or wet pavement. After about 500 mi, no flats and no noticeable wear. For a safer riding, even knowing of the 60 TPI casing, I'd recommend a pair of anti-puncture tapes.

Flats from small sharp stones

I gave a high rating for these tires earlier. They are quick rolling and comfortable tires, but once the bike trails froze I started getting flats. The trails were clear, all the rocks were frozen in place. 3 flats in 2 weeks. Each time I picked out what appeared to be flint. No more 2mm long, but long enough to puncture my tubes. Thicker tubes would make the quick tires heavy. Went with Schwalbe Marathons, no flats since. Well worth not changing tubes on the trail, but I did get good at it even in the cold. So even though these are cheap tires you pay in time, labor and cost of tubes.

A noticible improvement over my stock tires.

I wanted to try a set of these after reading the reviews on this tire. I was looking to put a set of tires on that were lighter in weight, and could take more air pressure than my stock knobby mountain bike tires. They provided a noticeable difference on paved roads, and packed gravel trails. The cost was also reasonable when you consider what Walmart wants for their bike tires.

Good tire for the Money.

Good tire. No problems so far. Almost 400 miles on them with zero problems. A little noisy at times but not unbearable. Works great on the greenway trails and roads I travel.

Excellent option if you only ride your mountain bike on paved roads and economical too.

A few months ago I decided to renovate my old '05 Trek 3700 hard tail for winter fitness rides including replacing the OEM Bontrager tires. Since I would only ride this bike about 25 miles per outing x 3 times per week 14mph avg on paved roads, I chose the Kenda Kwick Roller Sport commuter tires based the description - low rolling resistance, good durability, comfortable ride. These tires have exceeded my expectations on the rolling resistance and smooth ride. Too early to tell about the durability factor but no issues so far with about 700 miles on them. In summary, I'm glad I bought them. Decent product at a very reasonable price.
