Stephen Tamwrote a review of Mavic Crossmax Quest Tire - 27.5 on February 27, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
After being a huge fan of Schwable Nobby Nics I was a little hesitant to try these tires but they came with the Mavic Crossmax XL Wheelset so I gave them a try.
First off, they sealed up easily with a floor pump. The riding conditions have been abnormally dry and even dust due to the lack of precip in the West so I have not tried them in mud.
Running these tires with 22psi front and rear. Rolling resistance is low on these and it was nice not feeling a sluggish tire during climbing and on rolling terrain. I was impressed with how well these tires gripped in a variety of conditions...from semi-loose to rocky to hardpack. The more I ride these tires, the more I like them. The sidewalls feel durable and do not feel like they are folding over when cornering. I can't comment on sidewall durability since the once jagged, rocky, technical trails here are been smoothed out. Overall, very satisfied with these tires.
