After a few rides, I really like this tire on the rear of my bronson. I have been using an aggressor (which is excellent), but wanted to try something different. This tire rolls very fast compared to a minion dhr and a bit faster than the aggressor. It has good traction, but not as good as a minion dhr. Corners well, feels great. Very happy so far. One negative note: I think bc.com has the two versions of this tire priced incorrectly. This version is the exo casing and should be priced less according to maxxis (and all other maxxis tires on this site) than the dh casing (item MXXE01I). When I inquired to backcountry they couldn't help me figure that out.
