Use this tire on Pivot Mach 5.5 in the front. Ride mostly front range in Denver CO and recently in Moab, Slick Rock and Porcupine. Just a great all purpose tire that I don't think about, it holds in every corner....trust this one!
I've run a much more rounded balloon style small knobby tire the past 2 years that worked great on dry and slick rock (Sedona, etc.). These new tires are more suited to the typical NW trail with a variety of damp, wet, rooty and dry. Will especially appreciated the traction on short steep uphills and cornering.
