Excellent traction and tough

I have a 2.2 Crossking on the rear and a 2.3 Crossking on the front. Great combination. I have ridden endless tough rocky trails around southern CA and no cuts, gashes, punctures. They are light but tough. I was concerned that they might not hold up because they are light weight but I can say that they do not fail despite the serious abuse I put them through. The 2.3 has very nice deep knobs that really dig in making it perfect for a front tire. The 2.2 has more medium knobs which make it perfect for rear. They came spec'd on my racy hardtail and I already burned through one rear. I bought another 2.2 for the rear because I like and trust it. I like the 2.3 so much may put it on my Yeti SB100 too. The knobs are big enough on the 2.3 to make it really have a burly trail tire feel. Thank and enjoy your ride!

Awesome German Quality

These beautiful tires are low rolling resistance, grippy, and they hold air unlike the sidewalls of my previous IKONS.
