    “a solid tire”

    The Good:

    Grip. open tread, sticky compound and good life

    The Bad:

    squirrly in hardpack dry.

    Overall Review:

    A good "enduro" or in between tire. Beefier than my XC tires, but lighter and with a softer sidewall than a real DH tire. In soft, muddy terrain this tire is badass, but if the going gets dry and hardpacked the long lugs with the soft Black Chili compound get squirmy when really pushing in the corners. A great tire to have in your arsenal, but possibly not your "do-everything" tire.
