Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Wow, where do I start? I can't begin to explain how impressed I am with this tire.
I run the MM tubeless up front at about 22psi. I'm about 165lbs, and ride pretty aggressively. One thing that has blown me away is the longevity of the tire: I've clocked over 850-miles on it so far, and everything still looks great. I'm getting some visual wear on the side knobs, but nothing has been torn off. I expect to be on the same tire well into next season.
I ride on everything from snow, hardpack, loose over hardpack, rock gardens (granite, basalt, sandstone), loam...this thing takes it all, and takes it very well. I used to run a 2.5" Maxxis DHF up front, but since switching over to the MM, I don't think I'll ever go back. The 2.35" MM seems to have about the same width profile as a 2.5" DHF on a 30mm internal rim. I moved the DHF to the rear and the combo has been working really well. Cornering is always very predictable and breaking traction is awesome. Rolling resistance is on par with the DHF, maybe even a little better; it's very hard to tell a difference.
With my front tire choice sorted, now it's a matter of deciding what to run in the back. Like I mentioned, the DHF has been working well, but I'll be trying an Assegai or DHRII as soon as the DHF is dead.
Needless to say, I highly recommend running this tire up front; not sure how well the knobs would hold up to rear tire skidding.
