I love this tire for New England trails
I have a pair of these on a '12 Giant Trance. I consider this a perfect all around tire for New England trails. Hard pack, clay, granite and roots are no issue. Mud, however, is.

I use these for AM riding and for trials riding. The side walls are stiffened with reinforcement. So, I can run them @ 20 psi on a 20mm rim without fold over.

These tires are heavy at 960g, not 650g like Jenson's description.

PROS: Durable

CONS: Heavy

Great Grip
Couldn't believe the grip. Running the 2.4" up front, which is closer to a 2.5" tire. A little on the heavy side for the rear, but still works awesome. New favorite tire.

Good Tire
I came from a Spec. Purgatory tire which is a very good tire. This tire seems to have as good of traction and the sidewalls are stiffer due to the Protection system. This is a very good tire so far, ~4 rides. It took some time to seal well at the bead but otherwise installed well. Good price and delivery by Jenson

Outstanding Tires
High volume tire delivers excellent traction and allows for low tire pressures when the track calls for it. Rolls extremely well given the size of tread on the tire. I typically used Kenda's equivalent tires in the past that had excellent traction as well but did not roll nearly as fast as these do. Need to wait and see how long they last.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Install

This tire rails!
I've had this tire for about two months, have run it on around 100 miles of singletrack on the east coast and it still has the hairs on the knobs! I put the 2.4 up front with a 2.4 Mountain King in the back on my Blur LT- sick combo! It's a pretty voluminous tire, so make sure you can fit up to a 2.5.

PROS: Durable, Attractive Design

CONS: Heavy

Perfect AM tire
Black Chilli compound lives up to the hype. Extremely grippy without sacraficing too much rolling resitance. Far better than Maxxis 3C compound for tread life. Breaks predicatbly in corners. Great for both front and back applications.

It should be noted that these tires are true to size and therefore run larger than most. i.e. this 2.4 runs more like a Maxxis 2.5.

I run these on an AM/FR built 09 Remedy and have been equally impressed with their ability on the climbs as on fast technical descents.

Though Conti bills the 2.3 Baron as its Enduro tire, this is a much more versitile contender.

PROS: Grip, Wear, Rolling Resitence

CONS: Heavy Mud

BEST USES: All Mountain, Mountain Biking

Can I use these tubeless?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They work great tubeless. Seating them the first time may take a little bit though, but we'll worth it.
