Model/Year: 2017

Pros: Ideal for loose over hard, Durable tread, Tubeless set up easy

Cons: Heavy, Cost

Recommendation: This front tire excels in Co Springs where the terrain is loose granite gravel over hardpack dirt trail. It is a heavy tire and can feel like pushing a plow uphill, but downhill the confidence lets you rip!

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Excellent grip
goes well in any conditions
Never had a puncture
All mountain do it all tire

Cons: They aren't the fastest rolling tire but its probably made up for by the extra grip you get out of them.

Recommendation: I have the 29 / 2.35 on the front and rear
Great tire for the descents over wet sketchy rock gardens.
I have them on my hardtail and they really allow you to get into the more technical terrain

Pros: Great grip. Soft but durable compound. Burly AM tire.

Cons: weight and resistance. It's an AM tire tho so pick your poison

Recommendation: i run 2.5" on rear and front and they are noticeably slower but would trade the benefits of braapability any day
