Model/Year: 2018 xr4 29x2.6

Pros: Faster and grippier than the xr4 2.3 I was running. Confidence level increased by a million.

Cons: Was hard to find

Recommendation: Use it and abuse it. You will love it.

Model/Year: 2014 XR4

Pros: What a great tire. Handles aggressive AM riding with traction and speed.

Cons: SE4 is a nice upgrade for some added sidewall protection despite the weight penalty

Recommendation: Great all around tire that can add a bit of traction to a xr4/xr3 combination for XC and AM, or run front and back for more aggressive AM. Certainly bump it up to the SE5/SE4 options for more DH...

Pros: - Great grip - Lower rolling resistance than similarly aggressive treads - 1500 - 2000 mile life

Cons: - Price - Significantly looses grip near the end of it's life

Recommendation: Overall a great tire, well equipped for gnarly Southern Colorado terrain.

Model/Year: Team Issue

Pros: Great grip, incredibly predictable no matter the conditions

Cons: Higher tread means higher rolling resistance, but not by much

Recommendation: These are my new go-to tyres for all things singletrack since they can handle most technical challenges but don't suffer substantially when it comes to rolling speed.
