I'm an owner of a rock rider and the other reviews of it being prone to punctures doesn't make much sense, as I've rode over 800 kilometers on a pair since I bought them (about a year) and they still work fine. Event thought Some of the riding is on rougher terrain
SAYS Rock-rider 520 is the best for mountain terrain but i had wrest experience had ride on mountain but to my surprise within 15 minutes of my ride both front & rear tires punctures. When got to get punchers fix i could not believe front tier got 7 punchers and rear Tier got 4 punchers ? so this is Rock rider on JUL-2016 with KENDA Tyres now i could not believe my self the quality of
SAYS Rock-rider 520 is the best for MTB TYRES
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. Apologies for the bad experience you have had with your bike the rockrider 520. On an off trail it is common to have punctures but having both wheels punctured at the same time sounds abnormal. Please get the bicycle to our workshop. We will inspect the rims and change the inner tubes and the tire for you.

Easy to fit good grip
Brilliant value for money and very durable for road and slightly rough terrain riding. Definitely would recommend these tyres.
Great price, very durable
Done approximately 40 miles and had a puncture.
Such bad luck getting puncture so soon. Was it a thorn or a tyre pinch? Was it on the sidewall or through the tread? Where were you riding when it happened? I'd like to feed this back to b'Twin.
If you are not happy with your tyre then please feel free to return it to us for a refund or a replacement.

Tyrs appear well made, with an excellent tread pattern, and I can really feel the difference compared to my old set.
They ride exceptionally well, and are a pleasure to have on my bike.
Price & tread pattern
I'm training on my MTB for a 60mile road event. After reading that off road tyres increase friction on road surfaces I wanted to try a budget pair of slicker tyres to see if I could tell the difference. I've completed my usual 15 mile circuit this afternoon and the Strava app is telling me that I was faster on all sections. Average speed has increased from 19km/h to 22km/h!! Well pleased! If going anywhere muddy I will put my other tyres back on as the grip profile on these is pretty minimal, but for the price these are a real bargain pair of spares. On a less important side note - they look great!
Noticeably faster on tarmac
A little twisted at first but seem to have settled
Great tyre for tarmac and occasional off roading. My first pair lasted around 500 miles before the bike was stolen. No issues with punctures that entire time and by that stage they were quite well worn. Second pair replaced the mud pluggers on my full suspension bike and there was an instantly noticeable improvement on road. Average speed over my 20 mile route increased by nearly 2mph. Grip in wet muddy conditions isn't brilliant but certainly better than a road focused tyre and perfectly useable with care. For tow paths and forest fire roads these are great. Highly recommended.
