I've run this tire in both the 32 and the 34mm sizes. At 205lb the 32mm size was a bit small and I had to run the pressure slightly high. This tire is on a Ridley X-Fire that sees a lot of trail use. It replaced a set of Stan's Ravens. the Cross Pro rides very nice.
It's decently fast on hardpack, sticks in the grass sections well enough and has never been overly squirrley in deep sand or what little mud we saw this year in Southern California. Though I hit every puddle or water crossing I see. Even in some of the mud holes caused by the ranger's trucks it holds steady, never washed when starting to roll up the side of rut. No surprises. That's not to say it doesn't lose traction at times, it is just very controllable.
It flicks nicely on hard pack single track and rides very smooth, even at 45-50 psi, unlike the kenda slant 6's on my 'cross single speed GT-ZRX which squirm all over the place for me if i don't run them at 60-65 psi. This is a nice tire for all around trail riding
