On One “Chunky Monkey” 2.4″er Tires: On Test- by Guitar Ted

On One Chunkey Monkey tires

On One Chunky Monkey tires

On One, the direct to consumer company from the U.K., has been delving into the tire market of late. We reviewed the Smorgasbord last year and gave it high marks. (See review here) We were aware that at the same time, On One also designed and had manufactured a wider tire dubbed the Chunky Monkey. (How can you not smile when you read that? :) ) Well, beyond the fun sounding name, we were curious if this bigger tire might live up to our high expectations set by the Smorgasbord, so we got a set in to test and review.

Here is what On One says about these tires:

The On-One Chunky Monkey. A tyre designed predominantly for front use, with a big 58mm carcass to take the knocks and a 60mm tread width with solid shoulders to carve the lines in the trail you want.

Okay, so we are looking at one each of the “Trail Extreme” and the “Enduro” models. We’ll be coming back with an Out Of The Box posting soon, and at that time we will tell you about our plans for these big shoes.

Note: On One sent over these tires for test/review at no charge to Twenty Nine Inches. We are not being paid, nor bribed for this review and we will strive to give you our honest thoughts and opinions throughout.
