Awesome, confident tire for mixed terrain -- single-track, rocks, dirt, gravel. (Wouldn't use them if a route involved much pavement.) Easy to mount tubelessly with floor pump and pressing bead in by hand. Held air perfectly. Beefy enough for a loaded bikepacking rig. I sized down from a 3" Bontrager to the 2.6" Mezcal without sacrificing grip or squish, but gained speed and stability/tracking.... these tires go where you point them and grip well whether going up or down.
