Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This just arrived on my doorstep yesterday afternoon. After 30 minutes of unpacking a perfectly packaged bike and assembly, which again took no time at all, I was putting my helmet on and hitting the road. I spent about 10 miles getting familiar with the handling of the bike on both dirt road and asphalt sections and have to say that I'm really excited. I purchased this to compliment my Kona Jake CX bike but I'm already thinking this does what the Kona does and much better. Ride quality over rough sections was beautiful. The bike begs to be ridden fast.
I will be posting again after a couple hundred miles and give a better review.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I enjoyed the ride quality and traction of this tire for the few hundred miles I ran it. I'm now taking it off the bike with tread still at 70% because of two tears in the tread of the tire that make it impossible to run tubeless and I've now flatted twice on last nights ride running with a tube due to punctures. The Maxxis EXO casing is far stronger for me. I usually wear a tire out before I need to replace it. Back to Maxxis for me.

This wheelset surprised me from day one with how much flex is in the wheel itself. I'm 220 geared to ride and my riding style is aggressive XC. I like to keep wheels on the ground. After 2 months, I spun out the freehub body and had to walk the bike back to the TH. CC is awesome as they warrantied this out but again 3 months later, same problem. After the second set being as flexy as the first and both freehub issues, I decided to upgrade to the Stans Arch Ex - so very happy I did.
