- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I recently put these on my Mojo 3 to try out a different tire than the Maxxis Minions. So far I am really liking them especially in cornering and downhill. I am running the 2.6 tire tough/traction and I feel like I get better grip around corners and better stopping traction on the way down. On the way up they definitely roll pretty well but compared to other tires out there they seem to roll a bit slower. I chalk it up mostly to the over-sized knobs that I really do enjoy. The traction though is really great. I have found myself able hold a tigher line on loose rock and technical features than I may have on another set of tires. Visually the tires seem to be a bit wider than 2.6 but I think the combination of being on 27.5 and running a 2.6 makes them look bigger than they really are. So far they seem pretty durable as well. I spent quite a bit of time popping and landing into rocky chop and roots and now after riding them a few weeks have barely noticed any wear on the tread and have not yet had any punctures. If you are looking to try a new set of tires that will roll well, have great traction and corner well I would give these guys a try.
