I've been running this new XR3 as a rear tire on my Fuel Ex combined with a new XR4 in the front for about a month now. When I first got the tire, I was surprised how much less aggressive it looks than the previous XR3 tires I had on the bike. However, while riding Wisconsin singletrack, I've been very pleased with this new one. The grip is good and it rolls well as a rear tire. tax attorney columbus ohio

Weakness:

I've really had no complaints with it whatsoever. It seems to me that it breaks traction very predictably when I want it to, but sticks and holds a line no problem when I'm carrying more speed through a longer turn. accident attorneyMassage Therapy Tampa FL

Strength:

If you're riding hardpack in perfect conditions these tires can meet your needs. Low rolling resistance and they're fantastic in these conditions, but only these conditions. In these above conditions you could get an xc race tire, which would be faster.

Weakness:

Absolutely dangerous in leaves and slides out. No traction on any type of wet surface and they're like a slip n slide. Not confidence inspiring at all. Very squirmy if you have to ride through a mud section from a seep. If you're consider this tire, try one of the below first: Nobby Nic Maxxis Forekaster Continental Mountain King Continental Race King 2.4

Strength:

Pretty good on gravel and dry conditions. Fast in dry conditions.

Weakness:

Sideways traction in wet conditions is poor. Traction in mud is poor.

These came with my Trek Fuel EX 29er. Ive been fairly happy with them but, especially as they have some miles on them, they really do not have very good sideways traction. I have taken some violent falls from them slipping sideways (concussion and broken toe). Beware slippery when wet.

Strength:

Nice volume for a 29 x 2.4 (I have 30mm wide rims). Very durable and puncture resistant. In the "lighter" range weight wise than other similar tires

Weakness:

Doesn't track well or hook up in corners, especially in sand or loose over hardpack

These came with my new Trek Fuel EX9. They were the easiest tubeless setup I have ever experienced in a tire. Both tires sealed immediately with a floor pump. The tires have a nice wide volume, true 2.4 but the cornering knobs don't reach down far enough to be effective. I live on the Front Range of Colorado with a lot of loose over hard, some sand, and rocks. These tires are solid, but they don't provide a whole lot of confidence in turns. The front end is squirrely and you don't get the impression the corner lugs are hooking up at all. The rear tire seems to wash out pretty early as well, but braking action is very good on both the front and the rear. Overall, not a bad tire for the price and the weight, but I would only consider it for a durable rear tire as it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence up front.
