so those inserts are super expensive, how long do they last on average ? One season, 2...3 ? I ride 3 times a week at least

They are foam so they don't break or wear out, even if you dent a rim they are re-usable. I would think they would last years

Really depends on how much pressure you run and how hard you ride. If you are rarely hitting sharp edges that would impact the insert then they should last a very long time (years). The only way I would consider them worn out and unusable would be if they dried out and started cracking or if you had many hard hits in the same section that essentially make a large whole or tear from pinching.

On my bike about 10 miles. Felt weird, steering seemed off and I tore them out. Rotating mass = bad.

Has anyone tried the xc version of these? How do they feel? I would only use it in the rear tire

Pretty good. There's definitely a difference in damping and support. If you're not riding lift access DH a lot or using a Double Down or DH tire then I'd go CCXC over the Pro.
