My "go to" tyre for XC racing and riding for the last few years. I run one tyre for 99% of conditions as I run them tubeless and cannot be bothered with the faff of swapping tyres. The tread is sufficient for a rear tyre for most courses.
The latest version seems very tight to mount, but the flip side is that these are easier to inflate tubeless than before - this tyre inflated first time with very little effort on the track pump. The sidewalls seems better sealed too.
Definitely recommend, as long as you have a spare half hour to wrestle it onto your rim (Stans Crest in my case).
Fast tyre, pretty good grip. A fairly low volume tyre compared to other 2.0/2.1" tyres, so you might want to up to 2.25".
