Strengths:    High volume, round profile. good transition knobs, neutral steering

Weaknesses:    Could use protection from my bad line selection

Bottom Line:   
Have had several Nevegals over the years and they were OK if you didn't push the corners too hard. This 'X' version is way better. The side knobs were re-shaped to not roll over when pushed, the transition knobs actually work, and the rounded profile provides neutral steering traversing off-camber sections. Actual size is 2.33 at the knobs and about 2.27 at the casing at 27psi. I would say it is as good as the Maxxis Ardent it replaced, but slightly bigger, which is high praise. It's my new favorite front tire. Only have a couple hundred miles on it, so I can't comment on durability. Might be a five-chiles if it holds up.
