Model/Year: 2011

Pros: ~ Enduro grip
~ Reinforced sidewalls
~ Decent 771g weight
~ Goes tubeless with floor pump
~ Rolls nicely

Cons: ~ Pricey, at MSRP

Recommendation: I had the early, 2011 model when Frank Stacy released it as the Bontrager 29-4. It's identical to the current XR4 29" x 2.30" tire. Excellent off-camber traction and telepathic control, over rocky technical climbs makes this tire a stellar performer. It even digs in deep, sandy washes with a degree of predictability. Run it as a a front, with Bontrager XR3 29" x 2.20 rear and you got a winning combo.

Model/Year: 2015 XR3 TLR Team Issue 2.2 26r

Pros: Super grippy in the corners. Sheds mud well. Rubber is soft and sticky. Love the traction.

Cons: Sidewalls feel a little soft, had to ride tubes in them for a couple of weeks before they would set on the rim and take a bead.

Recommendation: Definitely

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Great grip, nice traction, very predictable handling in the dry, nice and stable and great control in the wet. Good for trail and all mountain.

Cons: A little heavy/slow rolling if you're doing cross country

Recommendation: I love these tires. Got them to replace my stock XR3s, and for what I am doing they are miles ahead. The heavier tread gives a lot more control and I no longer have to worry about slipping out on damp roots or rocks. These are great all around tires and especially going into the weathered off-season should be very nice to keep me pedaling.

Pros: Grip

Cons: Weight
Rolling resistance

Recommendation: I had these tires on my Trek Remedy and rode them mostly on wooded trails with lots of roots and rocks. They provided a good level of grip on those trails in both wet and dry conditions. The tread design does well in all conditions though it is a little slow rolling when its dry. For an all around tire they are great. If you ride dry, dusty trails a lot, I would opt for something less aggressive and faster rolling.

Model/Year: XR4 Team TLR 2012

Pros: New Design
Stronger side walls
great rolling resistance
handles corners well
does well in sand

Cons: bit heavy

Recommendation: Bontrager hired Frank Stacy this year to redesign there tires. Man did he do a great job! These tires are super great in almost all conditions, hard pack, sand, mud, loose rock and gravel. These things just rock! they roll super smooth, and not much noise on the hard pack! not to mention they can go TUBELESS!!! YES!
