Model/Year: 2013 2.3 29er 2bliss

Pros: Great front tire, tons of grip, durable, high volume, easy tubeless set up, inspires aggressive riding

Cons: Weight, lower rolling resistance

Recommendation: Awesome front tire due to grip and aggressive tread design, a little too slow for what I prefer as I rear tire.

-Durable, high quality as to be expected from Spec
-High traction

Cons: -A little pricey from the LBS

Recommendation: My favorite front tire. Thicker tread grabs on to everything and it rolls fast.
