Fire XC Pro Kevlar
Awesome grip especially for being only 2.1. Can easily feel what the tire is doing. When losing traction around a turn it is very controlled.
Road noise. Wears quickly on pavement. Local trails are only 2 miles from my house so I usually just ride the road over but have stopped since I noticed some wear already. Now that I'm riding them only on the trail I haven't noticed any wear.
Great tire that is fairly inexpensive. I was running a small block on the rear and nevegal 2.35 prior and this is definitely a better set up. More traction and more controlled with the Fire XC Pros
