Surprised by Assegai!

I particularly like the more robust tread on the Assegai for the front tire. I noticed improved handling at speed in loose material over the Minion and better rock handling than the Rekon.

Thank you for your feedback.

Excellent trail feel and highest quality

After one season the tires have performed so well I will be purchasing a replacement.

I coach 3 x per week and ride and race in addition to the coaching. I immediately felt the grip and control of these tires. It gave my bike that Brand New feel again and I was wiping and hoping through the trails. I did encounter a unexpected deceleration while riding including a sideways slide. Through this I managed to damage the sidewall of the rear tire creating a scuff deep enough to leak and the rubber portion of my wheel now has a side to side deflection that is visually obvious. Since the tread is excellent yet, I put a tube in the rear for now. The tire damage is not to suggest these are weak or low quality tires. I encountered a "road hazard" on the trails and the tires stuck harder than the bike. I will purchase a replacement of the same model. Tires are mounted tubeless on a Fuel Ex 9.8. I ride a mix of styles on xc and trail clusters.

Thank you for your feedback.

Excellent protection and performance.

I use this tire in a 'dual sport' mode. Half my riding is heavy braking and bad lines that we coaches encounter while sweeping NICA student athletes. The other half is pounding singletrack. The EXO+ is very appreciated. I have many sidewall scuffs after half a season but no rips, stretches or weeping sealant. I run 19 lbs for a 185 lb rider on a FuelEx 9.7. the wide rims really hold the 2.6 wide tires with out rolling the tire on hard turns.

Thank you for your feedback.
