    Like others before mentioned, this is not the best tire for loose, soft sand or dirt. Since I ride mostly in the desert this is an issue for me. (hence the 4) But everywhere else it holds the terrain extremely well and grips well to dive into turns, as well as keeping good speed and allowing me to run low psi

    Pros
    Very fast-rolling tire
    Great for the front
    Bead holds fairly low psi to give the 29er more grip

    Cons
    Looses grip in soft terrain

    This tire is great for the front, but when ridding on anythhing loose are wet it slides when on the back.

    Pros
    Fast, light, and durable

    Cons
    not for soft, loose, or wet terrain.

    I run tubeless with stans at 25psi. It is the best XC tire for the south.

    Pros
    Fast rolling, lightweight

    Cons
    The 2.1 is 2.00 inches. Price of the eXception series. This is due to the rubber being petroleum based, so as the price of petroleum increase, the tire price does.

    A great tire for XC and big enough for some trail bikes with longer travel. Big volume in this tire extends the usefulness of the tire for the longer travel bikes. Fast enough for XC marathoners Just keep this tire on the harder side of terrains and your gold.

    Pros
    Such a fast rolling tire, with good transitional knobs and decent cornering.

    Cons
    Does not like very soft terrain
