well i own both the khe's and the continental's and i hated every second i had the continentals they felt like crap, then the khe's are rad not the best tyres ive owned but definetly the lightest and fastest rolling. If i had to choose between the two i would go khe but my bontrager g1 tyres are the best tyres for dirt, street and park ive ever had or ridden but they arnt as light as the khe's not too far off the continentals though

why not small block 8's?
if you are riding dirt then they seem the obvious choice
i ride dirt street and park and i commute on my small block 8's and i am loving them
they roll real fast and grip well on dirt
i don't personally own the conti's nor the micro nobbies but at my trails, there are kids with both
i find that the micro nobbies clog up quite badly when it is only slightly wet where my small block 8's don't.
the kid with the conti's hates them, he says they don't grip well at all.

well. I love my sb8 right now for dirt and a bit of fr but.. i might try something different and lighter! like continental race king supersonic 2.2 front and 2.0 rear. ANY OPINION ON THOSE? sorry caps.

4 words 'not worth the cash' khe, bontrager g1's or SB8's are the way forward

well I don't ride street and park so.. only dj and freeride and a 2.2 would have more traction than a 2.1 no?
