One of the best tubeless tires we've ridden, the Kharisma has a low-profile tread pattern for superior traction and low-friction speed, with a unique design that brings the tread rubber all the way down the sidewalls to reduce punctures and increase strength. All-conditions cross country tread design, superior construction provides the best air retention for tubeless tires.

Tubless!! Saves tube weight.
Front or rear SPECIFIC tread patterns!
Good traction, even on rugged trails, especially over tree roots.
Can be run at low pressure for better grip.
Great downhill bite for breaking.
Light weight. Foldable/easy to carry off road.
Tires puncture easily.
Little resistance to thorns.
Need air every few days.
More than 2 years
Light weight, smooth ride on hard surface. Fine in the wet.
Stan''s sealer required, but it doesn''t seal thorne punctures. You need Slime in thorny areas (heavy, but it works)
I LOVE these tires!
Yes I would recommend it to a friend

Decent traction on dry or wet trails. Rolls fairly fast. Not too heavy.
Poor punture resistance
I have gone through 3 tires and all have had a punture in the tread pattern and a sidewall punture concurrently. I have not been able to successfully repair one yet. I did start running Slime radial tire sealant and have had no problems since. I would buy them again but only on sale for less than $35.
