It took me a long time to take the chance on a maxxis tire i tried continental xking (not good it blow off) and panaracer XC fire(very acceptable) before.

Strength:

Works great in dusty, rocky, slippery trails, but also works great in wetter tracks, excellent durability and reliability in tubeless UST. For, it is unbeatable in steep, technical ascents.

Weakness:

sticky mud creates a problem

For me, the best rear UST tire, try the combination with the Ignitor UST in front!

Similar Products Used:

Never found anything comparable, particularly great when combined with a Maxxis Ignitor UST in the front wheel!!!

Strength:

Rolls well, hooks up great on corners, zero puntures with them. they hold well & give good feel/control when drifting

Weakness:

Nothing to cry about

I have found them to suit my S.S and riding style well, they hook up well on all surfaces when cornering hard. They roll fast and after 1 year of hard work they are hardly worn. Not to heavy & not to much side wall flex.

To many to list

Strength:

Very fast roller, feels like a road tire on hardpack. Floats over sand since its knobs are low (doesnt dig itself down). Dial the pressure in and it will win you races.

Weakness:

NOT a tire for loose over hardpack, the low knobs and light tread dont dig in so you slide on loose gravel. The sidewalls tend to wear fast, and threads cut easy from rocks.

Much faster than the Mythos, feel sturdier as well (less pinch flats too). Not as much traction, especially in the loose stuff, but floats over sand like no other tire Ive ridden. If you have too much pressure in these, they ride with no control, like riding on ice. Gotta tune in the pressure correctly and they corner fast. The sides seem to cut easy from rock hits. Very good for XC racing, not for general all-mtn riding (and labeled as such). 5 for value cause they can be had for cheap, 4 for overall since the sides could be made more durable and they could be lighter.

Strength:

Low Rolling Resistance, corners well.

Weakness:

Could be a little lighter

Roll fast and corner well. Very sticky. More cornering confidence than the Scorpions, less weight than the Nevegals. Seems to brake well also. Haven't had them in mud yet.

Nevegals, Scorpions. Tons of others.

Strength:

Fast roller. Good for hardpack.

Weakness:

Weak side knobs. Poor wet weather performance.

This is a great tire for the racer in all of us. Great on hard pack and well worn trails. Also, good performance on asphalt and urban applications. I would actually recommend this tire for urban riding and/or racing. If you lower the psi to 30 you definitely get much better cornering performance, but these tires will slide out on hard corners and off camber trails. Crap on roots, good on rocks, crap on loose stuff.

Strength:

Ups, flats, downs, arounds. The soft rubber on the exception series really hooks up. The center tread will never wear out unless you skid everywhere.

Weakness:

Would be nice if they had a version that was a little tougher. Cornering knobs wear kinda fast if you do a lot of hard cornering.

This tire works really well on pavement, hardpack, and loose stuff. It is also better in mud than any non-dedicated mud tire I have ever ridden. A bit sketchy as a front tire on hard snow because of the wide center tread. For xc riding, there are few tires that roll faster, few tires that corner better (in any condition), and few tires that handle mud better. This is definitely the most versatile tire I've ever raced on.

Strength:

Very fast, straight roller, good cornering on hard surfaces, climbs really well on dry, hard surfaces

Weakness:

Comedy of errors on loose or wet surfaces. Won't stop you down fast, rough descents (like train station stairs- be warned).

These tyres are really fast and directional, and crank in dry, hard conditions, but suck ass in wet or loose conditions (which is what the manufacturer says too). Great for and all-round tyre that will get you to work and still play hard

Plenty of other tyres of various brands

Strength:

Yet to find one. Will try on the back.

Weakness:

Slides all over the place cornering in our loose gravel conditions. Rubbish.

Rubbish. The mimo is the bees and the ranchero does not work. lean it into a turn and you're gone. I took both tires out to test and nearly killed myself round the carpark on the ranchero. It is not a loose conditions tire. The mimo on the other hand out performed everything I've ever tried. The mimo cuts through loose stuff and corners on rails. I will be saving a fortune in brake pads now that I don't need to slow down in corners. Finally found the tire for WA.
