Bought the 35s, but was very unhappy with the tread width. It looks like they took the same tread from the 33s and threw it on a bigger casing. It was disappointing because I had head they worked well tubeless.
I will let you know in one year. The stock tires that came on our Giant Roam XR2 have yet to cause trouble. They will be a year old this Oct. I will be sure and holler it these tires don't preform well.
I use this tire for my local, SoCal, CX races and gravel grinder races. I'm used to the Kommando but when I found it a 35mm size I had to have it.
This tire rolls fast on hard pack, hooks up great in the sand, grass, and mud. Being a larger rider, I really appreciate the transition knobs to let me carry my speed through the corners, maintaining my speed and having awesome traction. Set them up tubeless on both my Novatec and WTB wheels.
It says it was a 700X35, but even on a Stans Grail wheel set, it measures out at about 33mm wide(?). Though the center tread has worn quickly from riding on pavement to my local Gravel roads, so far, they have been very tough and were easy to set up tubeless. I will however be going back the the Kenda Small Block 8 next time
