Ive tried quite a few different tires on my 5.5 Pivot and I always come back to these. I use it as a front tire. Tough. Reasonable weight. Long lasting. And great traction. Easy to mount too. Someday maybe Conti will make it in a 2.8
I am running a 27.5x2.4 in the rear and a 27.5x2.6 der Baron in the front this combo is crazy grippy and so far I have had no problems with the tires. They were super tight when mounting and took to tubeless with ease. They are also wearing great.
