This tire is a excellent upgrade trail tire for the Kingsong S18
- by Jon Wall,
Zero dislikes. This Tire is great on my S18 for the mostly trail terrain i use it for. This is a Trials with a soft contact patch and soft sidewalls . Excellent grip everywhere even on pine needles/loose leaves, I didn't expect that. Able to climb 20 - 30 degree trail sections that are tough for hiking covered in loose pine needles and tree duff that my ebike buddies cant climb without spinning out. Nicer ride than the stock street tire. Little bit of road humm at 20 plus mph, but not annoying. A small range cost of 2-5 miles over a 35 mile ride. I think its worth it and will buy another as a spare.
The best aftermarket tire for the Kingsong S18
- by Brody Hiraoka-Hurst,
This tire fits on the Kingsong S18 Electric Unicycle (and likely other 3.0 inch x 18 inch bike tire hubs) without modifying either the tire or the EUC. It is a proper dual-sport knobby tire that will handle off-road conditions better than the various stock ebike tires that the S18 ships with, without compromising road performance too severely.The TR-1 has a very similar tread pattern to the Kenda K262 that comes stock on the Veteran Sherman, but as we say in the states, "where the rubber meets the road," I trust "Made in Japan" more than "Made in China."I hope that IRC sees that there is a market in the West for this tire among EUC enthusiasts, and starts offering it to American customers.
