I bought this bike after owning Jeffsy and sb130, and I am in love. I race Xc but love big adventures on the weekend with long climbs and steep gnarly dh. And this bike fits me perfectly! I threw on some carbon wheels, mt7 brakes, and was able to get my bike down to 28lbs (check out my...more

@SprSonik personally I say medium because having ridden small, medium, and large sized bikes, I know I can grab a size medium and be comfortable on it with very few tweaks. Also, listing out the geometry numbers is simply not practical for 99% of riders. I ride 4 different bikes on a regular basis and...more

Hey @martycrosley the new versions of EXO+ don't list the TPI information underneath the size and max pressure. The old version says 120 TPI under the size and max pressure.

Nope. Riders have been using the DHR II as a front since it came out. It has better braking than a DHF which is desirable for a lot of tracks. Horses for courses and personal preference and all that.

I am only 165-170lbs and run 26 in the rear almost always on EXO+. Anything less such as 23psi and I feel squirm in berm turns and some g-out areas.

That's an interesting point and something I was discussing with a rider from Central California last week. Again it's terrain dependent. If the soil is loamy and relatively free of rocks and roots, then I could understand (at least in theory) how running higher pressure would give the knobs more bite. But here in the Southeast US there are roots and rocks everywhere, when it's wet you need to air down for traction on those slippery surfaces. Increasing air pressure in the wet in this terrain would guarantee a sketchy day on the bike.

YES PLEASE! DH Casing- Dual rubber anything would be a blessing.

Yeah, the lower thread count per inch means that the individual threads are thicker and thus more puncture resistant. That means they're less supple than the 120tpi standard EXO tires, but that also means they're more stable. All about those tradeoffs.

Just to chime in here, I recently returned from a press camp in Finale Ligure, where a large group of journalists spent two days riding some pretty rough and rocky trails. When I saw "EXO+" on the tires as we got acquainted with the bikes, I thought "oh great, we'll be fixing punctures for two days" -...more

I would say that 26/27PSI is likely a pretty good average for most people to make deductions from. I currently run heavier casings than these at higher pressures and you run lower pressures, so this should be a good middle point that we can both make deductions from.

I live in Washington and run really low pressures, but I seemingly always have to air up in California. The speeds are higher, the berms and ruts are more like concrete, the smooth bits are smoother, and the sharp bits are sharper. One of my friends from California refers to my setup as "flat tires." So I...more

I wish they'd make all their tires available in dual compound. I always ran a DC rear on my downhill bike if I wasn't at a race because $$$

Wish they'd make EXO+ in dual compound. 3C dies instantly on back tires in dry places.

Different strokes for different folks. I won more than a few races on downhill tires at 28/29 psi. Like previously mentioned by others, there’s no universal tire pressure that works for everyone. For me, anything under 25 psi (maxxis, schwalbe, bontrager, specialized, or continental, those are the tires I...more

In other words, not an apples to apples comparison.

Great catch, the new exo+ does not indicate 120TPI

I'd counter that 26/27 is within the range of average pressures. Pressure is pretty terrain-dependent, and while that might seem high for PNW conditions, 26/27 is pretty normal for many other areas.
