    Let 1psi out at a time on a trail you know well (2-5 minute) starting at 20ish psi and keep running it till it's too low, you'll know when. FUN FUN FUN.

    Pros
    Nice rounded profile, mildly aggressive profile digs into the ground well, no slippage at all on damp, short sharp steep hard packed pine needle covered single tracks, or on very loose, long, steep (like 40 degree) gravelly tracks, also good in 2 inch deep level mud grinds. Floats over roots on my hard tail, and it grips. Can just lean it over at 15 -19 psi (depending on how aggressive/rough the trail is ) and it just grips, much nicer than my 2.4 highroller 2 on my 160mm enduro rig, but then that's 2.4 and this is 2.8, it is the future. Makes a difference if set up tubeless.

    Cons
    Can tell it's a little harder to push along, whether that's because it's a hard tail, a wider footprint or lower pressures, than either my 29er canyon on 2.2/2.4s or my enduro bike on tough 2.3/2.4s. BUT it is so much more predictable grip and so much more fun because of it.
