Great tires. My review is based on the Desert RC. I run these on both a 300 smoker and 500 thumper. I ride mostly Desert that includes sand washes, wide open spaces, rocky areas, and single track that is abrasive. Moab slick rock was great too. In Colorado high county the front was a bit iffy in the slick wet and rooty single track. But I think most tires are in that stuff ;-)

I've been racing Open cross country for few years now. This tire combo really impressed me. Works great in all conditions. Rear tread looks like a trials tire but very durrable compound. Minimal chunking in rocks. Front gets great traction in all conditions. I am amazed how long they lasted! I did have a few punctures in front, runnig tublis so tire plugs worked. Moving to bib-mousse so never have flat again.
Ran this tire for a Enduro restart race. Was mostly sand with some hard pack. Found that this tire would not corner very well and I was constantly fighting to keep the rear end under the bike.
If you really like to steer with the rear tire then it might work. But it did not work for me. I changed it out and ran a Maxxas Maxx Cross it and had much better stability in the sand.
The tire performed very good in a wide range of terrain.
The front tire really tracks well and is consistent and predictable.
The rear tire hooks up well and at 8 psi performed much like a trials tire in the rocks and a knoby in the dirt.
Mud, hard pack, clay, big rocks, log crossing,creek crossing it performed surprisingly well a cross the board.
It is my new tire of choice for enduro riding and harescrambles.
these tires have lasted me longer than any set I've ran in the last couple years! I'm definitely buying this same set again once they wear out.
The soft knobs give you awesome grip, in turn they don't last that long.
