Strengths:    Massive grip , consistent over range of conditions, good roller considering the amount of grip it produces, big bag size for a 2.3, easy tubeless setup

Weaknesses:    Side walls a little thin and flexy , but at this weight it's not surprising

Bottom Line:   
All mountain or aggro trail riders; this is one of the best out there , grip is on par with a maxxis minion DHF but much lighter, super consistent over range of wet and dry trail conditions and handles ridiculous lean angles, superb quality tire runs true on the rim and super easy tubeless setup using a floor pump only , haven't cut the sidewalls yet despite the fact they are much thinner than a dual ply dh tire , probably because the bag volume gives the tire a lot of float over the tough terrain and helps to resist sidewall damage , had this tire on the go now for about 12 months on a trek remedy , impressive

The zee rear d. combined with the Straightline guide is almost completely silent and shifts bett ... Read More »

Butcher Control vs SX casing on heavy AM bike (Rune V2)?

I'm currently running the Control casing up front w/tube on Flow EX rims due to tear at bead that won't seal with sealant with an Ardent UST in the rear with no tube or sealant for that matter that has been holding up great amidst hard, rugged riding. Does anyone know if there is a big enough diffe ... Read More »

butcher sx or control?

I currently run a 2.4 continental mountain king rear and a 2.5 maxxis minion DHF exo front. The mountain king was bald in about three weeks. I love the minion, but at 1250 grams, it is a little on the absurd side. (I generally ride 4+ hour AM loops w/ 3500+ft of climbing near Vail, CO.) I've finally ... Read More »
