I’m getting a new ride and the tires that come on it are suspect at best. I’m getting an Orbea Occam LT M10 and mulberry. The front tire is OK, but the rear I’m not feeling great about. Also, both are Maxxis EXO casing. Overall I’m not a Maxxis fan. We’ll just leave that as it is.

I’m currently running a Teravail Kessel 29x2.6 as a front tire and love it. They also come in tan. I’m thinking tan tires would look killer on my new Occam. I’m thinking of tan Kessels 2.6 Front and 2.4 Rear.
My riding style is fast and aggressive. For reference most of my friends use DHR/DHR or DHR/DHR combos. The tan DHR/DHR did cross my mind, but those are EXO chasing again.
Has anyone use the Tevavail Kessel front/rear?
Does the climbing suck any worse than a DHF/DHR or DHR/DHR?
Teravail's Kessel mountain bike tire has tall lugs, an open tread pattern, and dual-compound rubber for exceptional grip when riding on loose trails.
