Great rear tire for trail bike

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Rolls fast Good grip Drifts predictably Pretty light

The Bad:

Short knobs get overwhelmed in deep mud Can get flats in extremely rocky terrain (especially at lower pressures)

Overall Review:

I've been running the 2.25 crossmark as the rear tire on my trail bike for years. I pair it with a minion DHF and have really come to love this combination. The crossmark has surprisingly good grip--much better than you would think just looking at it. It rolls very well, and I can notice a big difference compared to say a high roller or other knobbier tires. In corners it holds quite well and drifts super predictably. Paired with a larger/knobbier tire like the DHF I can corner really aggressively because I know the rear will let go before the front and that it will do so in a predictable manner. If I lived in the mountains, I'd likely run something a little burlier, but for the piedmont area round me which has lots of roots and rocks but not as much high speed chunder it's a great choice.
