Excellent Tire - Fast, Sturdy, Great Traction

I use this tire on my Yeti SB100 which I race and take on rough back country explorer rides. I wanted a tire that was fast enough to race but tough enough to not leave me stranded on remote rides over sharp rocks and tough terrain. I ride fast and hard and these tires have proven to be a very good tire. Yes, there are lighter tires but they are more prone to sidewall gashes. Yes there are heavier tires with even more protection from gashes. I consider these to be a very perfect sweet spot. Traction and cornering is excellent. I have it on the rear and just waiting for my old front tire to wear out a bit more to put one up front as well.

Great tire and flat protection. Made the switch after using Schwalbe for years.

Great bite for cornering, provide proper grip in the mud and continue to be reliable for all conditions. Love the tire.

Outstanding

Switched over from a different brand, these tires hold the trail amazingly well and have reduced slippage in steep rockydusty climbs. Bike is a S-works WC Epic

Front tire on XC set-up

Using this a a rear tire on my XC bike. Was able to seat tire bead with just a track pump, albeit pumping pretty fast. Have about 170 miles on the tire on hard pack, rock, leaves, and mud. Tire rolls great and has great traction. Seems pretty rugged given some of the rocky terrain it has been over with no issues.
