Long term REVIEW: 2015 Bontrager xr1 team issue 26×2.20

I used these tyres more than 5 months. I have done some mountain-biking with these tyres,but since I now use a full suspension-bike i have not recently done any MTB with this tyres. But I have done a lot of commuting.

Pros:

  • Excellent cornering grip. the side knobs provide good grip when turning,the closer pattern middle knobs gives you the fast rolling.
  • fast rolling well gripping tyre for asphalt and hard-pact trails.
  • very easy to put on off the rim,no tyre lever needed.
  • low weight
  • does pretty well on wet asphalt too,not like the LT 3 that gave no grip on asphalt

Cons:

  • I am between 70 and 80 kg and I need to run minimum 40 psi or I will puncture on riding stairs or  of side walks.
  • punctures easily on glass,this is cause by how thin the tyre is, it’s a about 3 mm I think.
  • bit too loose when putting them on the rim.

 

1 rear tyre got a puncture lost all air,other rear tyre on a other bike exploded in the bike shop, with a loud bang, the hole was pretty big like some one  stabbed the tyre with a knife.and this was with just normal commute riding to stores,but i got them replaced i the store, and  the 6300 bike now got these tyres both on rear and front and they are holding up well as long as i run 40 psi on the rear.2 tyres failed with normal commute use,fut that was probably faulty tyres,

I have used the Bontrager xr1 team issue for a long time, without any issues.

 

Conclusion:

Recommended

Good tyre,not too expensive.

Good lightweight tyre,fast rolling excellent tyre not matter if you use it for commuting or riding on trails

price $69.99
