not a fan. TOO supple, extremely difficult to install

tire is so undersized out of the box that I was debating whether it was a mislabeled 650b. the TREAD needed to be stretched over the rim, let alone the sidewalls. I've mounted dozens of tubeless tires over the past decade and these were by far the most difficult. way harder than GP5000 TL.

once mounted, they were both very out of round. ok so I ignore that too because they just feel sooo supple. went for one ride at 40psi and they felt super fast and smooth on coarse gravel, even at that high of pressure. For reference I weigh 155lbs. but then on the following road descent they were unnervingly squirmy in corners. it was uncomfortable pushing them into a corner faster than 30mph. so basically, they're awesome in a straight line, on bumpy roads, as long as you don't mind them being wobbly and impossible to do a flat change roadside. can't speak to their durability since I returned them after 2 rides. when I removed them, bead had stretched so much that I could put it back on by hand. I suspect that challenge knows these unvulcanized tanwalls stretch a ton and thus intentionally undersize the bead a lot to account for that.

Very nice tires

Conditions in the Marin headlands are dry dry dry these days. Fire roads are definitely hard pack. This supple tire is definitely helping to soften the blows. Low profile tread requires rider attention on downslopes but�shouldn�t that always be the case??

Definitely worth it.

One note about install: tight fit for sure. Patience and technique will reward and once on no issues with seating.

Ridiculous fit

I bought these tires because they rated really well for rolling and puncture resistance. The tread looks like "just enough" for dry SoCal trails. The yellowish sidewall is kind of ugly, but I figured I'd eventually get used to it if they performed well.

Unfortunately I couldn't even get them mounted on my Rolf Prima Hyalite wheels (alloy rim). I knew something was weird when I took them out of the package and they were totally flat. Absolutely no roundedness to them at all. Then when I tried to get them on the wheel, The "fit" was so tight I needed to use tire levers to install the FIRST bead. Even with the first bead in the tubeless channel, I had to work the tire levers to get the first bead seated. Then I wanted to use a tube to set the tire up before adding the hassle of sealant. Well the tire was so tight I could barely get a fully deflated inner tube between the tire and the rim. Then, trying to install the second bead? Fugettaaboutit. I eventually got the second bead seated, but surprise, surprise, when I tried to inflate the tube I had obviously pinched it while wrestling with the second bead.

So now I have to try and get this thing off! Frankly I should have stopped when the first bead was so difficult to get on the rim. I can't even imagine what a nightmare it would be to try and deal with a bad puncture on the road/trail. What a waste of money.

Great tires but

I mean these are easily the most supple gravel tires I've ridden. All those Little Rock gardens disappear as I glide through the hills.

But I mean life span is crazy short. These tires are probably best saved for a race. As in one race. Well maybe two but don't forget the Dynaplugs.

Fast Rolling with Tread

These are pretty fast rolling tires and pretty light. I like them better than my Gravel Kings because they roll just as fast and don't throw pebbles at my fellow riders. They have a yellow sidewall, not tan if that matters to you. My 38mm version expands to 40 mm wide on my 25 mm internal rims. They require a no ammonia sealant apparently so just to be safe, I bought Challenge brand sealant instead of my normal sealant. Would give 5 stars if I could use my regular sealant. Maybe I can, but I don't want to experiment with these relatively expensive tires.
