    The Panaracer FireXC Pro is an older tire now but it still performs well. They are a lower volume tire in the modern tire world (they were not at release time) so compared to a Nevegal or Continental of comparable size you will need to run with more pressure and a harder ride. They are also narrower than most of the modern 2.1 tires.

    The performance is great - I feel every bit as good as Nevegals. They have better puncture resistance than Nevegals as well.

    Ultimately, the FireXC is a tire whose "prime" time has come and gone but that doesn't stop it from being a solid performer as it has always been.

          Comments about Panaracer Fire XC Pro Tire:

          After trying several different brands and styles of tires I purchased a set of Panaracer Fire XC pro tires and I don't regret it. After about half a season of riding I can find nothing negative to say about these tires. I'm on the bigger side and also on the reckless side of mountain bikers but have had no issues with punctures on these tires, even after countless times of accidentally leaving the trail. These tires far outperform my capabilities; I've never been for a loss of traction while riding these tires at my favorite tracks.

            Comments about Panaracer Fire XC Pro Tire:

            I picked up my first real mountain bike late last fall, a Trek Fuel EX. The stock tires weren't much to talk about and left me scared to take a corner as fast as my years of riding MX would allow. So while off during the winter I read 50-11 tire reviews and settled in on the Panaracer Fire XC Pro and made sure to get the good version with the 127TPI rather than the cheaper version you read so many complaints about. I was so ready to ride come March when the weather began to cooperate. It only took a few rides to realize these tires had something special going on. Despite running them with tubes, I was still able to get by with running around 30PSI and not experience pinch flats. That's riding aggressively downhill over rocks and roots. They even bit the ground and wouldn't lose traction when going up hill over rocks and roots. The lower pressure helped smooth out my ride and between the better feel and traction I began to set one PR after the other on Strava. I even earned a few KOM spots with these beauties underneath me. With ~400 miles on these tires so far and very little wear showing, I predict a long and love-filled relationship between them and myself. Pick up a set for yourself, save a few bucks while doing it, then fall in love with their capabilities that have garnered them one of the all-time highest and most rated tires ever produced.

              I have ridden on Panaracer tires for over 24 years and these specific XC Pro Kevlar bead tires for over 15 years. I just bought another set to finally replace my worn out ones. They simply last and last and with the exception of heavy mud/caliche, they perform very well in almost all conditions. Adjusting the pressure for the conditions really brings out the awesome performance capability.

              Comments about Panaracer Fire XC Pro Tire:

              I have had 2 sets of these tires. I got about 1500 miles out of my first set, riding about 75% on the road (commuting), and 25% all-mountain riding. These are long-lasting tires with very good grip on the pavement and on trails. They are good on hardpack, mud, rocks, and over small roots. The only place these tires are lacking is when it comes to gravel/loose rock. These tires are a proven design, and are WELL WORTH the higher cost that they usually command.

                Comments about Panaracer Fire XC Pro Tire:

                Love the versatility of these tires. The trails around here have a pretty big variety of dirt, from sand to gravel to mud to rocks. These tires with a pound or two adjustment of pressure in the tubes conquer it all, except for climbs with heavy mud where deeper grooves and larger knobbies would be better. Not sure I would trust the front on an aggressive downhill, either, for the same reason - a more appropriate tire with larger side plugs would be better.

                    Comments about Panaracer Fire XC Pro Tire:

                    I researched and researched the top name tires and decided on the Nevegal lite for my front tire and a Panaracer XC Fire Pro for the rear...I was going to put them the other way around, but after looking at the Panaracer's aggressive tread design and knobby side treads I put that in the back. It is a uni-directional tire. After adjusting tire pressure to my liking (which made a HUGE difference), I could not be happier. It has only been 3 weeks or so, but so far the Panaracer is holding up great. I had Nevegal 2.0s front and rear, which came with the bike (KHS 535 dual suspension) and was quite happy with them. I wanted to try something a bit different and settled on the above combo for my 3-4 day a week 45 min-1.5 hour rides. I would recommend this tire for cross country riding. So far, it handles techie sections quite well...rocks, roots, wet, muddy, leaves and such without too much of an issue, although I am getting a bit of side deflection which I think is due to the side knobs. The deflection is only momentary and the tire hooks right back up. This only happens on some roots, some rocks and the occasional tree limb if they are at just the right angle. Uphill climbs are inspiring and only limited to my skill level...the tires are far better than I am!
