Great rear tire for XC
I have 700 miles on the tire thus far and I do not see why I cant get another 600 or 700 miles more out of it. Rolls fast compared to others in this category with more grip than other I have used like Aspens or Fasttraks. Im impressed with the tread and sidewall protection, I know for a fact I sometime take stupid (but fun) lines through sharp rocks and this baby has not once had an issue with flatting and the sidewalls shrugging off sharp rock hit with easy.
My new go to rear tire!
If I was racing somewhere less rocky than here in AZ I would even consider running this in the front to.
