I used the Kendas one season. Just want to try something new. I loved the Panaracers but I want to stay with tubeless...... so they are out. I read good things about the Cont Mountain King UST but have yet to see them on the trail...... makes me think twice. And going online doesnt help..... may just have to swing by AJ's, Im pretty sure they carry the Conti line of tires. After last week riding on wet ground, my Maxxis are getting sent to spare tire bin.
