I use this tire on my Cross bike for gravel, dirt and non-technical single track rides. I've tried 2 other tires because the one bugaboo with the MXP is that it is very difficult to mount. Having said that, I keep coming back to it because the ride quality is vastly superior to the other tires I have used. Despite sporting substantial knobs, it rolls surprisingly well on the sections of asphalt I ride to connect dirt sections. Since switching to the tubeless version, I now cannot get pinch flats, which had been a problem with the MXP clinchers. This also has allowed me to ride lower pressure, which further enhances ride quality and traction.
These are great. They set up tubeless easily, and perform well. We havent had any rain, so Ive only used them in dry conditions, but they grip well on grass, sand and loose surfaces. Definitely recommend as a good all-around CX tire.
