    Previous tire was a well known high end expensive brand. Wasn't keen on spending big money for a tire I wasn't too happy with. For the price of the Duro Switch, I figured I'd give it a try.

    Mounted tubeless to Arch EX rims with Stan's sealant. Used a compressor and they mounted quick and easy without any sealant leakage around bead or sidewall.

    I've put about 200 miles on them without issue.

    Sure there are better cornering tires, lighter weight tires, but not for this price. They get the job done nicely at 1/6 the price of the tires they replaced.

    At first glimpse this seemed a great value, which it is. It has a mean aggressive stagger which says it can eat dirt for breakfast. Tire mounted perfect. The downfall of this tire was the rolling weight. The inertia this tire took to propel over climbs was immense and therefor tiring to say the least. It did not corner well at all, as the rear tire seemed to slide a lot.. I proved a point to my self, wider knarlier tires does not mean better by any means.

      Looks GRRRRRRREEEEEEEAT for a burly front tire for Colorado's Front Range! Big, wide, meaty... Should instill confidence.

        Comments about Duro Switch Tire 29":

        After several uses I can say that I really like these tires. My confidence going downhill and turning is much better than before. Granted, I did have on kenda small block 8 tires on my bike(small knobs). These tires grip really good, just as good as my Kenda nevegal on my old bike.

        I was hesitant to buy because they are so cheap(price wise) but decided to give it a shot due to the decent/good reviews other riders gave it here. Going to buy these for my girlfriends bike as well.

          It is a very nice tire for the money. Set it up as a tubeless and holds the air very well. It grips very well in loose conditions but it is not a fast rolling tire.

                Great tire for the price. The tread is very grippy at all angles, but it rolls a bit below average speed - you can't have everything! I run it on the front of a rigid where I used to use panaracer rampages, and this is very similar.

                  This is a great front 29er trail tire. It has good rolling resistance with a lot of grip with the large knobs. I would recommend this as a good front 29er tire for the price.

                    I was expecting a terrible tire at this price. I was wrong!!!! Best tire and I have run expensive kenda tires that can't even compare to this performance. Mainly used for downhill riding through rock gardens and technical areas

                      This tire works good I am using it as a front tire soaks up bumps my short travel fork won't I don't know what the other reviewer is thinking its a 2.35 tire of course it's not like using a 2 or 2.1 cross country tire so it is sluggish but what do you expect with a big tire !!!!! The most bang for your buck bargain out there !!!

                          I have yet to ride on the tire, I wanted to put out a quick review for anyone considering these tires that might consider setting them up tubeless. I tried a couple of different methods and would not recommend that any type of ghetto tubeless be attempted with these tires. I finally successfully mounted one with the cut tube method but the bead still was very hard to get to seal. Otherwise they mount up exactly at the claimed width of 2.35 and look to be a very decent tire. I will run the other with a lightweight tube and not stress trying it tubeless.
