Maxxis High Roller II 3C Exo Tubeless Ready 27.5" Tire
Revamp your 650b Trail machine with the open and aggressive tread design of the High Roller II. With excellent soil penetration and mud clearing capacity, the square profile provides a solid, consistent feel across the knobs. Modified knobs on the shoulder and center, progress braking performance and traction on hard surfaces. Employing Maxxis's Exo Protection, the High Roller II is cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant on the sidewalls, while remaining flexible. The 3C Maxx Terra (triple compound) offers a comfortable combination of traction, low rolling resistance and longevity. This is a large, high-air-volume casing that still remains fairly light thanks to the foldable bead, making the High Roller II ideal for some freeriding on long-travel 5" and 6" trail bikes. When the trail gets technical, rely on the High Roller II to keep you upright and shredding hard!

Durability aside, these tires inspire lots of confidence to keep pushing the envelope. When leaning they hook up well and keep you on your line. Breakaway is predictable and there is plenty of time to correct when a tire begins to slide. Compared to the dual compound, these wear faster in my opinion. I was able to ride the dual compound for a long time and I only took them off because I cut gash in the side wall and had a puncture that would not seal.
Installation is easy, I was able to install this on WTB i23 ST rims with a floor pump. They hold air even without using sealant! I am able to run these at 18 PSI front and 20 PSI rear with no problems. I weigh about 165 with gear.
Overall, dual might be better for normal usage/practice while triple compound might want to be saved for more special occasions.
PROS: Lots Of Grip, Easy To Mount, Good Rolling Resistance
CONS: Expensive, Durability
BEST USES: Aggressive Trail Riding, All Mountain
Super grippy in corners, leans over nicely without a feel of transition from middle to side knob, very confidence inspiring. They don't roll as fast as a semi-slick on the rear, but it's nice to have two of the same tire so they break free at the same time (so you're not overly sliding the rear around).
I think they nailed the sidewall thickness on these, it's supportive at low pressures, but not so heavy that you feel the crazy weight of a dh-weight tire. Good balance. They've resisted a lot of pinch flats that I assumed were a sure pinch (rock DING!), tubeless.
Side knobs are sticky as heck, but mine are beginning to get undercut a bit (on my very worn rear tire that I am replacing with another one of these). So yeah, maybe the 3C wears a bit faster than the normal tire, but they're only a little more dollars, and for the nice side knobs I think its worth it.
Run them on wide rims for most fun!

BEST USES: Casual Riding, Upgrade, Mountain Biking
Great all around tire with decent durability. Great traction under braking and excelent cornering due to triple compound. Competitve weight if compared to other brands. Whatever this tire lacks in rolling speed (which is still OK), it makes up in traction on the up's and down's.
Can't go wrong here...

This is true but if you really lean it into the corners you'll find grin inducing grip and it really is a good tire. I will admit that the squirliness is amplified as the tire ages. I run this tire on the front and back. The cure is to move the worn tire to the rear and install a new Highrolller II on the front.
This tire also seems to work really well on the rear. Even a worn tire works well with the loose climbs of southern California.
