Maxxis Crossmark Tire - 29in $56.95
The original hardpack rescue.
As one of the first 29er tires that was specific for hardpack, the Crossmark's nearly continuous center ridge and low-profile knobs gave big wheeled riders an edge on buff trails. Sure, there are plenty of options now, but Maxxis' casing, rubber compounds, and tread patterns continue to keep elite riders at the top of their game.
Maxxis gave the Crossmark a fast-rolling center ridge with a tread pattern that favors high-speed hardpack, yet it still holds its own on wet and loose sections of trail. This is possible due to spacing between the center lugs and raised side knobs.
The Maxxis Crossmark 29-inch Tire is available in the color Black and with a 2.1-inch width.

While I wasn't impressed with them as a front tire, run "backwards" on the rear, the have good grip yet will break away early enough that the back tire will still be the first one to go.
On the front , it was quick to wash out. I have read that they can be modified by cutting off the round knobs on the edge, but I never tried it.
