Continental Twinduro TKC80 Dual Sport Tires
my most favorite tire of all time even though its my first one
This is my first tkc 80 rear tire and must say its pretty awesome cause you cant hear the knobbies running on the road much at all and took the tire to 75 mph and quite impressed me and on top of that when going off roading is not super duper but its pretty darn good for a off-road dual sport tire and would say the only downfall is the treadlife which is to be expected but all in all I would have to say that if I had the chance to buy this tire again I would just cause every penny invested into this tire is totally worth all the fun you get out of it cause life is short so might as well live it up.

These tires hook up great in the dirt and are pretty grippy for on road applications as well. Unfortunately they wear quickly. Not as fast as the Mitas E-09's but faster that the Heidenau K60's. This really is a 60/40 tire favoring off road use, so if you doing quite a bit of off road riding, then I would highly recommend them.

Great service from Revzila
Did not have the time to install the tire yet. Everyone says that is great but does not last more than 3k, will see. Fast shipping from Revzila as usual. Thanks

Work well on and off the road
Best all around tire I've found so far. I got about 6000 miles out of the rear, but I should have changed it out about 1000 miles ago.

Excellent tire! Second one and will probably buy a third!

Nice grippy street legal knobbies
Haven't done too much riding on this tire yet, don't know how long it will hold up. From my initial experience, it handles and grips well, on and off road. you feel the knobbies riding slow on the street (15-30mph) - after that you forget you are riding on knobies. would recommend!

Grippy & predictable but wears increadibly fast
The title basically says it all. I bought these tires to take a 1,500 mile adventure ride that consisted of highway, twisties, gravel roads and dirt/sand trails. The TKC's handled all of those situations with ease. They are a tad noisy on the road, but no more so than standard knobby tires. Grip is excellent on both the street and in the dirt, right to the edge of the tires. I also rode them in wet conditions and they were as predictable as standard road tires. My only complaint is with the tread life of the rear (the front is actually still going fine). I replaced the rear after only about 2,700 miles and it was toast. I'd prefer to get a bit more mileage from the tire if I could. Otherwise I would definitely recommend these tires.

Great tire; Geared towards offroad, still works onroad.
I've put about 400 miles on this tire so far and so far I really dig it.
I'm coming over from Bridgestone TrailWings and I can tell a huge difference on the front tire off payment. I commute a lot on my bike, and I don't have any problems with the knobs at 80mph. I don't really "feel" them like you can with some knobs.
I went with a Heindau K60 on the rear, but I am really happy with the TKC on my front. The traction I have on the 5+ miles of gravel road on my commute is night and day compared to the TrailWing.
Long term, I'll have to see how long the tire lasts to determine if I stick with this or change the front to a K60 as well.
