    Expensive

    Highly recommend this tire. I would try to get the wider version but this one has worked out very well.
    I do the majority of my rides in AZ. Most trails are dry, hard pack with lots of rocks. These tires have handled the abuse and just keep on rolling.

    Pros
    Excellent in hard pack, rocky trails
    Rolls fast
    Great confidence in corners
    Seems more durable than the Ikon

    Cons
    Narrow: 2.1
    Expensive

    Love these tires. perfect for GA riding. I run both front and back with these tires. Cant think of anything that needs to change.

    Pros
    Great cornering capabilities
    grippy tread
    climbing capabilities
    side knobs pull wheels out of ruts in muddy conditions
    light weight

    Cons
    if used in rear the tread wears fast on pavement
    reduced traction on wet rocky/rooty surfaces

    Pros
    Great rolling tire and light weight when the conditions are right this tire is hard to beat. Great corner tire and great climbing tire!

    Cons
    Tread does not clean out very good at all. Also in wet condition this tire can be very slick on rock and roots However I ride dirt trails not mud trails so no big issue for me!

    Although mounting can be a little difficult, these tires are great. Good rolling resistance with amazing grip. They have dual compound which help with wear and cornering. They shed muck pretty decently and come in a variety of widths. They have a thin sidewall but you can get the UST version and run tubes.

    Pros
    Weight
    Petroleum based
    Tread pattern
    Tread life

    Cons
    Thin sidewalls

    love the ignitor. it is my favorite front tire, and pairs well with the crossmark out back

    Pros
    Light weight, rolls great, good grip

    Cons
    not the greatest sidewall strength, but not a surprise at this weight

    I switched to these from Nevegals. I like the Nevegals bite, but hated the rolling resistance. I just rode these in loose/hardpack covered with snow, and I never felt as though they were going to slide out from under me, good bite in the corners, fast roll. Run the 2.1 as the front at 40 psi with WTB Exiwolf 19.5 in Rear. 2.1 is a little on the skinny side, so I may go with 2.3 next time.

    Pros
    Good grip, even in Hard/Loose covered with Leaves and snow. Rolls much better than other brand. Relatively light.

    Cons
    Not true to size, 2.1 is more like a 1.95.

    I ride in mixed conditions and find that these tires suit me very well. They are not the best at anything in particular but overall do a lot of things very well. I will buy again.

    Pros
    Roll fast, good grip, light tread pattern

    Cons
    none

    Decent tires, came on my Dawg. Switched to Nevegals, but goign for Mutanoraptors or Ardents next.

    Pros
    Grippy, rolls well on a variety of surfaces.

    Cons
    Not great in wet or really hard conditions, narrow (not a true 2.35)

    I ride lots of loose dirt and rocks uphill and downhill.

    These are the grippiest tires I have ridden and are even grippier than the Panaracer Fire XC Pro.

    The recommended direction orients the front and rear the same. I mounted the rear backwards (much like Panaracers) to help uphill traction. Downhill braking traction is still excellent.

    Pros
    grippy light and durable

    Cons
    pinch flats with anything under 35 psi. I weigh 175 lbs and run 35/40 F/R.

    Bumpy and slow on pavement. What do you expect from an off road tire?

    I paid $50 for this tire at my LBS. It's durable casing is enough for downhill, yet light enough to climb. The treads seem to be wearing at a reasonable rate too. So the tire should last for a good amount of time.

    Pros
    Excellent grip, this tire folds.

    Cons
    None

    If you want a light, strong, gripping tire, then this is for you. This is the tire for Colorado Front Range in my book.

    Pros
    These tires girp amazingly, even on sandy switchbacks. The tread also wears very slowly, even if you ride on the road alot with them.

    Cons
    They don't roll the best, and when you make sharp turns on pavement, you can feel the side knobbies.
