    Definitely

    Pros
    Super grippy in the corners. Sheds mud well. Rubber is soft and sticky. Love the traction.

    Cons
    Sidewalls feel a little soft, had to ride tubes in them for a couple of weeks before they would set on the rim and take a bead.

    I had these tires on my Trek Remedy and rode them mostly on wooded trails with lots of roots and rocks. They provided a good level of grip on those trails in both wet and dry conditions. The tread design does well in all conditions though it is a little slow rolling when its dry. For an all around tire they are great. If you ride dry, dusty trails a lot, I would opt for something less aggressive and faster rolling.

    Pros
    Grip
    Versatility

    Cons
    Weight
    Rolling resistance

    Bontrager hired Frank Stacy this year to redesign there tires. Man did he do a great job! These tires are super great in almost all conditions, hard pack, sand, mud, loose rock and gravel. These things just rock! they roll super smooth, and not much noise on the hard pack! not to mention they can go TUBELESS!!! YES!

    Pros
    New Design
    Stronger side walls
    great rolling resistance
    handles corners well
    does well in sand
    TLR

    Cons
    bit heavy

    I have ripped the sidewalls of 2 of these within 2 weeks of use here in Tucson. I ride in chunky stuff, but I have had NO problems with tearing ANY other tires here on these trails until I got these. I was not doing anything different when I trashed these, and a good friend has also torn 2 of his soon after purchase. As long as you do not take these into rocky chunk, they are great, but I cannot recommend them for anything that they would seem to be designed for. A real shame, but if Bontrager strengthen the sidewalls they might be fantastic.

    Pros
    Great if you don't take it into real chunky stuff. Bites well in corners, it's pretty lightweight for a high volume tire, and rolls well.

    Cons
    Tears too easily in the rough stuff.

    Great as a front grabber, or as a rear in mud.

    Pros
    This thing has bite. I use it as my front tire and it grabs on everything. Very light considering the tread.

    Cons
    None.
