No regrets with this purchase.

Took the advise of another reviewer and use a X-King on the front and Race King on the back. I ride a hardtail on mostly aggressive hardpack with plenty of sandrocksroots mixed in. The Race King runs slightly widerfatter at 2.2 than the X-King, but they work great together. As predicted, the rear lacks some grip on very loose dirt and the braking power is not as good as my last tires... but not bad. They grab very well in turns and ride well in sand. I don't ride in the wet.

Made the switch from Scwable Rocket Rons 2.1 with tubes (took 35psi to avoid pinch flats) to tubeless Conti's (27psi) and it has made a HUGE difference in comfort and control. No contest - and the Ron's are pretty good! Never going back to tubes. Very happy with this purchase.

Pretty good tire

Use it on the rear of a tadpole trike to reduce sideways slip in high speed turns and to provide traction in loose dirt or gravel.

Great German quality

This is a well made German tire. It was easy to install on Mavic 26in wheels, rolls fast, rides smooth with little noise on blacktop at 49psi. I have rode about 30 miles.
