Get prickly.

Most of us ride a little bit of everything — rolling XC, rocky downhills, and leg-testing climbs — so we need tires like the Vittoria Saguaro TNT 29in Tires, which are designed to handle all of that and then some. By blending a fast-rolling band of center tread with medium-sized side knobs, Vittoria gives the Saguaro a combination of speed and bite, with a weight of just 710g in the two-inch width. If you're looking for a little more gnar, size up to the 2.2-inch width for some extra traction, and it'll still check in at well under 800g.

This edition of the Saguaro features a supple 120 thread count per inch, which means you'll have excellent feel for the trail. It also rocks Vittoria's TNT Tubeless Talon bead, which lets you run them as traditional clinchers or weight-saving tubeless tires.

The Cactus for Your Bike

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This tire has excellent grip. It was a breeze to setup tubeless on my Reynolds Carbon Black Labels. I actually have this tire on front of my hardtail XC bike with the rotation setup for max traction. I have the Barzo out back. I no longer have the tire grip worries that I had with my previous tire. I'm only about 100 miles in, but I've had no pressure of puncture issues whatsoever. Very happy with this tire.

Doesn't Let Go

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As Shawn mentioned below, air pressure is very important for this tire. Once you get it dialed, though, this tire grips and does not let go. This is currently my rear tire of choice as it seems the tread pattern is very suited to it.
These were a tight fit when being installed on my Arch EX rims. On the bright side, that pays off by keeping an excellent seal once they are set up.

Solid traction but a little delicate

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It took me some time playing with the tire pressure to find the right traction. When I did, these tires offered great traction with very low rolling resistance. However, I've had some issues with punctures in ways I haven't with previous tires, mainly Maxxis Ardent and Ikon. I often times find myself really babying my bike through rockier areas because of this. I am a heavier rider and I certainly understand where this comes from but previous brands that I have used have not punctured with the frequency of these. Finally, I feel like the ware life on these seems to be shorter as well.

I run these tubeless on I9 Enduro Wheels at 28 psi. Anymore pressure than this and traction suffers. I weigh 190 and probably close to 200 lbs when geared up with a hydration pack.

All in all this is a pretty solid performing tire at a reasonable price.
