This tire is a excellent upgrade trail tire for the Kingsong S18
- by Jon Wall,
Zero dislikes. This Tire is great on my S18 for the mostly trail terrain i use it for. This is a Trials with a soft contact patch and soft sidewalls . Excellent grip everywhere even on pine needles/loose leaves, I didn't expect that. Able to climb 20 - 30 degree trail sections that are tough for hiking covered in loose pine needles and tree duff that my ebike buddies cant climb without spinning out. Nicer ride than the stock street tire. Little bit of road humm at 20 plus mph, but not annoying. A small range cost of 2-5 miles over a 35 mile ride. I think its worth it and will buy another as a spare.
The best aftermarket tire for the Kingsong S18
- by Brody Hiraoka-Hurst,
This tire fits on the Kingsong S18 Electric Unicycle (and likely other 3.0 inch x 18 inch bike tire hubs) without modifying either the tire or the EUC. It is a proper dual-sport knobby tire that will handle off-road conditions better than the various stock ebike tires that the S18 ships with, without compromising road performance too severely.The TR-1 has a very similar tread pattern to the Kenda K262 that comes stock on the Veteran Sherman, but as we say in the states, "where the rubber meets the road," I trust "Made in Japan" more than "Made in China."I hope that IRC sees that there is a market in the West for this tire among EUC enthusiasts, and starts offering it to American customers.
Perfect fit for my S18 EUC...well as perfect as possible.

Homework shows this IRC TR1 is the only dual sport knobby that fits (without mods nor tire shaving) on the S18 EUC. & for once, the internet is correct. Though the tire has to cross a very large pond to Canada, the tire came a lot quicker than indicated. I like this under promise over deliver strategy!Once here, tire fits perfect although I gotta admit clearance btwn tire & fender is tight so do be aware of it if one goes on a lot of pebbly trails. Nevertheless, this tire is awesome, at least for my S18 euc. Turn the machine into a true offroad all terrain wheel without seemingly any negatives for the streets. At least for me.Highly recommended for the KS S18 euc.
