Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The good: It works and does what it is supposed to do. Fits nicely underneath the brake like a Front D shifter. The not so great: It doesn't have the most friendly and durable design. When compressing the lever, the actuation bends the cable housing at a ~60 (?) degree angle, the prolonged use of this will begin to fray the cable housing. Ergonomically, its good, but the lever itself isn't too fixed and becomes squeaky, nothing some dry lube can't fix though. Finally, to get real "nitpicky" uses the small 3mm (?) hex to clamp, which isn't a big deal its just a pain to change components with 4 different sized bolts, I like to keep them close to the same or spec on Shimano. Overall, it gets the job done, but I think there are some other brands for levers to use with a Fox Transfer dropper that are better designed, have better actuation, and won't fray the cable than this model. Also for better value plus the same nice under the front brake style. In essence, I think you can get a better lever.

I've had a string of bad luck with Conti's, but I still think they are probably the higher end of the tire spectrum. Pros- they do the business (which is what you really want), If you take a tubeless flat on the trail, these are extremely easy to remove from the rim without breaking your wrists (huge plus) . Cons- minus some operator error here and there, i wish they were more durable. I have had this specific tire "chunk out" with good knobs still left. Definitely have to keep the air on the plus side of 30 psi for the rear, even though the sidewalls are super strong cause they will pinch flat on medium drops. Last the challenge of mounting them will test the legitimacy of your bag of tricks. Almost impossible to mount with basic tire mounting skills. At home an air compressor is very important and removable valve core for increased air flow. IMPORTANT, prior to inflating take a tire lever and pulling the bead, run the level around both side of the tire. I just saved you hours of struggle time. It would also be sweet of Conti came out with a 2.3 size.
