Best front tire choice

The Good:

Hooks up beautifully. Really shows its potential in the mud, or blown out dry conditions.

The Bad:

A little flexy in hard pack conditions.

Overall Review:

I use this tire on the front about 80% of the time. It is a great tire and will hook up on anything loose.

Awesome trail tire

The Good:

Corners like it's on rails. Beefy knobs track well in the mud.

The Bad:

Slightly high rolling resistance. Tubeless set-up can be troublesome.

Overall Review:

This is my current favorite front tire. The side knobs hook up well in every corner, and the tread design works well on everything from hardpack to sticky mud. I don't like using this tire in the rear, because it's a little bit slow-rolling. I prefer to pair it with a faster tire in the rear, like the WTB Wolverine or something similar. That allows me to get up to speed more quickly, and then make use of this tire's excellent traction and cornering ability. If you're buying the TCS version for a tubeless set-up, your experience may be mixed. I mounted two of these tires tubeless on identical rims, and while one sealed up instantly with just a floor pump, the other forced me to drag out the compressor. Other than that, I love these tires.

Miscellaneous This widely spaced linked tread tire takes charge in a broad range of conditions from dry hard pack to mud.
