Haven't used new SE5 but for comparison purposes do feel that SE sidewalls in general seem a little tougher with less natural flex. Went from 27.5 2.6 XR4 to SE4 on a HT and my basis for stating this is I could run slightly lower pressures with out feeling the 2.6 flex too much through corners. If you need a lot of sidewall support look into a tire insert (I have a extra 27.5 cush core laying around if anyone in US looking)
