I love this tire. I use it for racing cross country and harescrambles and I use it with the tubliss system. It works amazing. I have found tires that grip going into corners better on certain types of dirt, but this tire is very well rounded and works exceptionally well from rocks to sand. My favorite aspect of the tire is it's predictability, it will slide out occasionally but its never unexpected. I also like the strong sidewalls that don't roll around as much as some other front tires. I was very bummed at the last race when a rock cut the tire and it went flat. . . . but i love this tire so I just had to order a new one.
