Short answer, yes, it's weird.
Having a lower profile tire up front with a meatier tire on the back will lead to your front wheel breaking traction before the rear. If those are the only two tires you have I would recommend swapping them front to back. Front Nevegal, back Booster. That will be an easier to control combo. Having a rear tire that has a less aggressive drift point is far safer and easier to control than the opposite.
I hope that helps!

The change in specs will definitely have a bigger impact than whta the article says. Especially the fork: RS has a very simple damper (self bleeding design with no compression shims) where the 40 has a not adjustable compression but is equipped with proper shim stack and offers...more

Looks good for the price! I hope they have early success and are able to release more casing/compound combinations, as right now neither of these tires appeal to me solely off not having the right combos. Soft, sticky fast wearing rear and hard, less grippy front? No thanks.

I’m stoked to get on these! I love grippy tires, but I’m always fantasizing about faster rolling tires. These sound like they might be in the perfect middle spot.

I’d love to see more splatter colors for ultimate matchey matchey.

I don't get the complaining about the $65 price tag. A Minion DHR/F EXO with their Maxterra compound is normally around $90. Sure, you can find them on sale for a little less. Definitely like the initial review of these and I'll probably pick up a pair to try them out.

HOWEVER, come on...more

With practice and the correct tools (large round trash barrel and good tire lever(s)) mounting up a CushCore is actually not bad at all.

The wear patterns are the same as any non splatter. The color fades a little with use and is not as crisp when it is dirty, obviously. But with a wash the color looks new again.

The initial look is similar, for sure, but there are differences. It rolls faster, for one. The cornering knobs have the innovative siping too. There are many other subtle differences too: Knob surface area, shape and position etc.
