Meet The New Forekaster
The new Maxxis Forekaster is the "Goldilocks" downcountry tire you've been waiting for to speed you away on both the uphills and downhills.
The original Forekaster was designed as a wet weather option for XC, while this new version is aimed squarely at modern short travel (100mm-130mm) trail bikes. The new Forekaster rolls fast but also provides solid cornering and braking traction in a broad range of trail conditions. Riders looking for a middleweight option can find here a lighter and faster-rolling tire than a Minion but with more predictable cornering, climbing, and braking traction than a Rekon or other XC tire.

Voluminous and predictable
Using this as a rear tire on my hardtail. The tread pattern provides predictable traction in most conditions, especially compared to the previous version of the Forekaster. Highly recommend!
