I replaced the too smooth tires that came with my Cannondale Quick CX mountain bike with these tires and could not be happier. They ride smoothly on the road, but also grip well in the dirt. Looking forward to putting a lot of miles on these tires.
Bought a set of AT Rides for wife's Liv Amiti. We ride mostly gravel rails-to-trails. I had replaced the original 700C-42 tires with 29X2.1 mtn bike tires, but they were too big for the frame so after several months I decided to go back to the original tire size. She was accustomed to the 2.1 tires so I was concerned about wanderingwashing out but she reported no problems.
These Conti's are much tougher than the OEM tires, which went flat several times in a short period of time.
The dense knobby pattern seems to work well in gravel.
