Pros EXO sidewall protection, excellent cornering grip, good on front or rear, dual compound increases longevityExcellent cornering, reasonable weight for size, good braking traction, durableVersatile, affordable, great all-around use, intermediate tread height, fast rollingAmazing cornering abilities, performs well in all conditions, stiff and tough casingFast-rolling, impressive cornering abilities, flow trail shredder,
Cons Not the best for hardpack, high rolling resistance, requires good techniqueHigher rolling resistance, expensive-ishNot the best braking tractionSlower rolling, harder rubber compoundThinner sidewalls, heavy for how thin the sidewalls are
Bottom Line Step up your game and start leaving your friends in the dustAn aggressive rear tire that lives up to its prestigious monikerA killer rear tire that does it all wellA shred-worthy front tire that delivers exceptional performance on all areas of the trailA tire that offers sharp cornering and nice rolling speed but lacks the chops for rough trails
