When gravity pulls you downhill, rely on the High Roller II to keep you upright.
Now available in the increasingly popular 27.5 (650b) size. The open and aggressive tread design gives the High Roller II excellent soil penetration and mud clearing ability. A square profile provides a solid, consistent feel across the knobs. Modified knobs on the shoulder and center improve braking performance and traction on hard surfaces.
Maxxis produces this tire in few different rubber compounds -- this one is the strongest of the bunch, featuring the downhill-specific 3C Maxx Grip rubber compound and a two ply casing for excellent traction and strength. It's designed to be run front or rear.
The High Roller II 27.5 inch is available in 27.5 x 2.3 Inch (58-584 ISO). 60 max. PSI. Folding bead. Claimed weight: 875 grams.

Good tire, corners well, nice side nobs and wide footprint.
Great tire. I am an all mountain guy who likes to go up an down trails fast. The bike came with a racing Ralph which is very light and rolls great but I had no confidence in it in the corners or descending. The high roller is excellent in the corners, keeping a line and for descending. Price is good compared to others, I still don't like paying [$] for a MTB tire when that is what I pay for my motocross tires which have a lot more material.
