5 of 5 Great all around Tire September 14, 2020
Reviewer: Adam Diem from Brecksville, OH United States  
I got this tire for a general CX tire, and man is it great.  This is the second gravel/cx Tire I've got from Kenda and I am not disappointed.  Great riding, easy mount and tubeless set up and feels great on the gravel or cx course!

5 of 5 Great all around tires! July 13, 2020
Reviewer: Josh Titlow from Ashburn, VA United States  
Tested the Booster Pros on gravel, forest paths, and pavement and so far they have been great. Fast on dry, packed dirt, stable on loose gravel, fast on pavement (a little noisy though). They hook up pretty well on steep up-hill climbs and shed mud reasonably well. Would definitely recommend. These are tubeless ready but I am running them with tubes on a cyclocross bike.

5 of 5 Great cornering even through wet leaves March 2, 2020
Reviewer: Steve B. from Kentucky  
I ride the Boosters on single track, gravel and asphalt very stoked about how well they roll on three surfaces. First day out on them the trail had some muddy spots,going through the corners the tires would have a moment of float(expected) but then bite in and become stable on wet leaves! After we had some dry days I got to get out on the gravel roads and single track around Land Between the Lakes. The tires are fast and stable I never felt out of control on descents or corners nor felt like I was lugging bricks up a hill, Boosters are a great upgrade for my bike.

5 of 5 Booster! BAM!! November 15, 2019
Reviewer: Michael Steyer from West Sacramento, CA United States  
I first used this tire at Grinduro which was loose, rocky, snowy, slick, drizzly, sunny, hard packed, and the descents and ascents were very steep at times.  Side bite is excellent, front does not wallow or feel like it is going to roll off the rim at lean angle.  Impressive traction on a very high-speed logging road gravel descent and the rear brakes great.  I have been racing CX on the Booster, mainly hard pack and grass in California.  Tires work fantastic and I have yet to wash out the front end even in very techy and tight cross courses.  They work well in the sand sections.  I have also ridden and gravel raced the Kenda Flintridge.  The Booster is equally fast rolling on hard pack but has better traction.  The Flintridge is more robust and can take more abuse.  If there are any improvements to be made to the Booster, it would be to have more puncture protection on the contact patch.  I cut the tire twice which I had to plug on grave ride.  For CX this isn't an issue.
