I've run this as a rear tire for about 120 miles. The traction and side walls have performed really well. I've been in a bunch of terrain and conditions, but been really pleased with the grip and puncture resistance with surprisingly efficient rolling smoothness. However, the nobs are already showing significant signs of wear. I'll probably need to replace it in the next couple of weeks. By comparison, I mounted a Pirelli Trail M to the front at the same time, and it's hardly broken in. It still has the little thingys dangling from the tips of the knobs. Hoping I can find the new Enduro Trail Race by Pirelli to replace this in the rear.
Great tire with great control and grip. It came on a Frankenstein build of a Pivot Switchblade and I intended to take them off right away and switch to Maxxis. After only a few rides, I would have to say it was one of my favorite tires ever. The only downside was that it seemed to wear quickly, but that would be the expected trade-off for the great grip.
I've used this for about 200 miles of dirt riding as a front tire on a WTB i29 rim. It's one of the few 2.6 tires that's actually 2.6 it's extremely soft and I've been running it about 18 to 20 psi it has a very round shape to. For reference I'm 185lbs. It really smoothes out the bumps I can't believe the difference between this tire and a 2.4 Continental X King. The rubber on the tire tread and side walls is way softer than anything I've ever written. Tried to sneak one on the back of a 29er Foundry Firetower hardtail but it wouldn't fit. It's seated pretty easy after I tighten the lock washer on the valve stem. It is heavy a little over a thousand grams but I knew that when I bought it. I bought the Newton 2.4 downhill Tire to go on the back hoping it's like this one.
