Product Description

The intermediate profile gives the rider control in almost any terrain. With its open tread pattern the tire cleans itself as if by magic, even when the ground is wet. Magic Mary is the best decision for up to 80% of all tracks.

Strengths:    Grip grip grip!
Mount up easily tubeless.
Grips well even with 32 psi or more.

Weaknesses:    Weight and rolling resistance.
Probable wear rate on rear.

Bottom Line:   
I've ridden the Hans Dampf and Maxxis Minion as front and rear tires. Currently I have a Performance Magic Mary front and a Hans Dampf on the back, which will shorty be changed to a Minion DHF.

Basically the grip level is insane. If you thought the grip on a Minion DHR 2, DHF or Hans Dampf was good, you'd better strap yourself in! This tire will endo on light dry dirt! The braking grip is just out of this world, but the the off camber grip is just as good if not better than a Minion and it will rail corners too until you lose the ability to lean further.

The only downside is weight and rolling resistance, however this is not so bad if you only use it as a front tire, especially if you are riding recreational AM or Enduro in the moist to dry, the extra confidence boost and grin factor is well worth it. Matches up with a Hans Dampf or my favorite a hard wearing DHF on the back. I wouldn't match it with a Hans Dampf or Rock Razor or any other Schwalbe tire long term as most Schwalbe tires just don't last long enough on the rear IMO.

If I was riding DH or wet/muddy AM/enduro I would be inclined to run a Magic Mary front and rear.

In essence you just can't go wrong, the Performance version in my opinion is a good tire and great value for money at about $30 so I'd give that 5 star for value. If you are DH rider get the Performance for the rear and save yourself a few bucks. The Evo versions of Schwalbe tires are in my view not worth the extra (maybe my riding isn't good enough to tell the difference), but really they seem too expensive so I'd give it a 3 chilli for value.
