Good for what it does, but be careful...

While it does give exceptionally small rolling resistance, which is killer for those hardcore climbers out there, be sure to get the correct width to match the type of biking being done. I got a 26x2.1 width tire for 50/50 XC/AM riding and while it climbed superbly and descended well in grippy terrain, the loose stuff (very loose rock or sand) going downhill tended to shake the High Roller at that width. I'm sure that a wider version of this tire would give a better feel on the looser DH conditions though.
