I'm riding a set of the new Resolution 2.1s with the new tread pattern and really like em. I've had lots of tires and these offer a pretty good balance of rolling resistance, and grip. The new treads are more open that the Adrenalines or old Resolutions so they shed mud fairly well - not as well as a dedicated mud tire, but they clean out pretty well.

Grip is very predictable in all but super slimy conditions where not many tires that will hook up.

I am still running my Kenda Nevegal/Blue Groove and it seems to be ok at the mo. The rear is looking a liitle tired, as the knobs are worn down a little which might be reason enough to get some new ones! That said, I have not lost any confidence in them and it has been pretty damn wet here in the UK of late....

Haven't tried that model yet. The stock Specialized adrenaline tires have been great so far this winter but I just put on a pair of Paneracer Cinders for a review I am writing up and they are an excellent all weather/condition tire. If you look at the tread of the Cinder and the xc pro you will see that the xc pro have a smaller center block so they will probably roll better but you might not get the same traction bite that I have found with the Cinder.
I would have also recommended looking at Specialized's FAST TRAK tires

I've had the panaracer fire xc pro 2.1s for five months on my stumpy and have loved them. I went through the sidewalls of the reso's quick. The fire pros have held up really well and are like glue climbing compared to the resos. They do roll a lot faster. I think i'll give the cinders a shot next, but i really like the fires a lot. I ride mostly hardpack with lots of rocks.
