    I was wondering about getting them on my Bigfoot which has kinetics right now. These good tires for street and dirt jumping, no?

    yeah, they are good dj tires, a bit skinny, but thats ok. if you want a bit more girth, go with some holy rollers

    yep :thumb: The Krads are a solid, reasonably priced tire. The Holyrollers seem to stick a little better on the pavement (softer command it seems). Kenda also has the new Kiniption out too, might be worth checking out.

    I have the krads on my urban bike. They stick great to concrete but they slip a lot on dirt and grass, maybe its just my riding style since I'm used to dh tires, but I gotta say I always feel a little sketchy when I'm on anything other than concrete with these.

    k-rads are awesome for dirt, park, street, and can handle the occassional trail ride as well. they grip suprisingly well off road but on the trails i wouldnt lean the bike over too much since they lack side knobs.

    I wish my 1.95's held more volume although I'm spoiled from running 20 psi in my dh tires)

    Break loose easily, but seem to have a predictable slide to them. Good tires.

    Yeah I'm interested in the Kiniptions too, as well as the Tioga UrbanFreestyle.

    I like my K-rads, but I'd like to get a slightly faster, less knobby tire for the rear. I hope the Kiniption and Tiogas are a little smaller than the K-rad 2.3.
