    I just came back from my first Muni ride with my 24X3.00 Kujo DH tire! It's awsome! I like it much better than my 2.6 Gazz I had before. I'm running at a lower pression than I was running with my Gazz. It absorbs drops really well, but I think that's just because it's a 3.00. It's a really great tire! Plus it has red sidewalls

        Hutchinson is one of the old french tire companies like Wolber, and Michelin. They have a great reputation for good rubber, and while they aren't the most common brand in the U.S. it is definitely available.

        I don't know about that tire, but if it's made in france it's probably decent. If not, it's probably made by Cheng Shin Tire (CST) which has a house brand named MAXXiS, and so probably also decent. It seems like every tire company out there makes some terrible tires, and so it's not worth buying for brand alone.

        The following quote is from an old thread: "

        I like the 26" wheel size a lot. I am fairly tall (6ft 2) and finds it works better for me. However I like playing on a trail and a 26x3 is indeed a cumbersome beast. When I first tried a 26x3" tyre I found it rode like a tank, it really was an effort to turn. I am now back to riding a skinnier 26x2.45 (Hutchinson Jumbo) and this brings the behaviour of a 26" more in line with an XC unicycle with the bonus that I can still confidently bomb off big drops and use it to attack aggresive trail riding."

        I didn't read the whole thread, but from that post it sounds like the tire was good as of 2006.

          Hi all, was wondering if anyone has tried Continental's Rubber Queen 2.4? Sounds like it could be a great 'all mountain' tyre from the reviews.

          I'm currently riding a Maxxis Swampthing 2.3 Supertacky which grips nicely in the sloop I currently have for trails but has slightly less volume than the Stout and rolls much slower too! From the reviews I have read the Rubber Queen solves both these issues whilst remaining very grippy.

                It looked like Kris was riding a Dyno Fireball in Unizaba!

                At FLUCK Ivan had a Dyno Fireball 24X3 on his Qu-Ax 24. He did pretty good with it.

                  Does anyone know if a IRC Kujo DH tire will crack in under-0 temperature? I dont want to switch to my Gazz again for the winter, the gazz is so hard to put on

                    the swampthing is one of my favorite mud tires, but the sidewalls aren't quite as stiff as i would like, and it sucks bad on hardpack and pavement. lately i've been riding a tioga dh comp 2.3, and it's slightly wider, it has the mud capabilities of the swampthing, but better control and there are enough nobs to handle pavement. it is one of my all time favorite tires. i'd recommend trying that or the tioga white tiger which has even beefier sidewalls, but may be more clingy with mud.

                    btw, if it were just about the name, i'd def. get the rubber queen, lol. just cracks me up......

                      I'm LOVING my kujo 3.0 on my 24" conundrum. I'm running higher pressure because I'm stickng to the road and hard packed trails right now. Love it!

                      • I'm digging the 2.5 Kodiak 29er tire. I posted a preliminary review at http://www.speedgoat.com/blog.asp

                        You may have to scroll down the page a bit or do a search (if you're much past Dec '09).

                        I liked the Stout. I REALLY like the Kodiak.

                        • Well, Iíve been riding Continental's Rubber Queen 2.4 since Christmas and it's definitely the best tyre I have tried so far. It's very large for it's size. It just fit in the older KH26 frame but really needs the newer frame with the clearance for a 3" tyre. I'm currently running the tyre at 20 psi and it could go lower yet. Pushing the sidewall's there is little give while pushing the top of the tyre there is quite some movement, so the sidewall strength is good.

                          Previously I have used a Stout 2.3 and a Swampthing 2.3 (both run tubeless as is the Rubber Queen), and this tyre is much bouncier, bouncing me off balance upon landing my first few drop-offs! The tyre manages to be both gripper than the two previous tyres I have run and faster rolling, providing a sensation of speed that I never got while riding the Swampthing. I've found the extra grip most notable while climbing, being able to climb more technical and steeper hills before the tyre looses grip and spins out. I've had no problems with wet roots and it handles mud well too.

                          I weighed the tyre at 843 grams so it's a little lighter than the stout, great considering it's extra volume, a super 'All Mountain' style tyre thatís well worth a try.

                              Sounds good. I will have to get myself one of those to try.
