Weight

Mounted tubeless on 23mm inside width rim, 32psi rear, 30psi front. 2.2" tire measured 2.11" at sidewall, 2.21" at knobs, so very much true to size. At 790 grams, a bit heavy but mostly because it has so much tread. Don't think anyone is going to call this a fast tire, but brother does it grip the trail: Loose, rocky, hardpack, uphill, braking, cornering. Can't say how it does in the wet since it hasn't rained here in a couple years, but if it's dry, this tire is hanging on like a scared cat. Excellent directional control, goes where you point it. The 120TPI casing presents something of a paradox since there is so much rubber on the tread but the sidewalls are quite supple. Probably why it does so well on rock. Combined with the squarish footprint, the moment of inertia is pushed further out making it sluggish to get up to speed. That's OK, I'm not in a hurry. Can't testify to durability since I'm just getting started with it.
