This tire has provided endless miles of dependable single track training and racing. The tire is light yet has strong sidewalls to get you through miles of real mountain bike terrain. The tread is very low-profile lending to a fast rolling tire, yet grabby side knobs keep the tire from washing out. I have raced this tire from Moab to the Tetons to the High Cascades and been pleased everytime. The tire is not a mudder, especially in clay type materials. Then again, if its muddy wait for the single track to dry.
I have used this in the 26" and 29" version, with a tubeless setup, and keep going back to them. Run Stan's Sealant for the ultimate protection.
