Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is one of the best all around XC tires out there. I ran mine tubeless at 25 psi for training and as low as 21 for races. The ProTection technology makes for a super solid tubeless set up, and these tires have excellent flat protection especially when compared to some ultra-thin XC tires. It's a fast-rolling tread that also holds amazing grip on rocks and in corners. I have yet to run them in really wet or muddy conditions. An ideal XC quiver for one season would be 2-3 sets of these and a pair of X-Kings for the mud.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Royal classified these shorts as enduro/trail, but I'm mostly a cross country rider and they're still awesome. There's super thin, yet very durable and they breath well. The pockets can hold two spare tubes, tire levers, a small pump, a phone and some food with no problem at all. My only complaint might be that the pad isn't very thick, and may not provide enough padding for someone used to a heavy duty chamois as I was, but it was easy to get used to and now I'll happily ride with either.
