Kinetics is a pile of poo. Most uninspiring tire out there.

A great tire from the kenda line is the blue groove, at about 780 grams it is lighter than advertised, and much lighter than some of the other tires out there. This comes at a cost though in terms of stability, and pinch flat protection. Neither of which are bad if you have a DX32 or wider rim. Very sticky tire as well.

I rode a michelin comp 24.1 2.5 on the rear since about last June. Amazing tire, probably the best tire money can buy, or at least a tie with the maxxis offerings. Never got one pinch flat with that tire in all that time, nor did I get any roll. It just wore out is all.

Never run a Maxxis, but hearing great things about them!
