Model/Year: 2013 XR3

Pros: Great XC and AM tire for a great price

Cons: Non for XC and light AM, fast rolling sacrafices a bit of traction, XR4/SE4 on the front could help a bit there while keeping the rear fast and light

Recommendation: Switched to SE5/SE4 and DHF/DHR2 combinations for more traction and stronger sidewalls given the increased amount of DH my tires are seeing these days, but these are still great options for a less aggressive ride

Model/Year: Team Issue

Pros: Fast rolling, plenty of grip over hardpack

Cons: Becomes pretty unpredictable in the presence of slick roots

Recommendation: Great choice as a rear tyre, and great if you aren't going to encounter anything too slippery
