New England rider, Marin Alpine Trail XR came with Assegai front and rear, but the rear is a little too slow for my liking. I ride park a couple times a year, but mostly pedal up enduro or trail style riding. I know the DHR2 is the default rear tire but the dissector looks good too. Thoughts?

Dhr is much better for park, but will be slower than a dissector. Choice is yours if you’d prefer the rolling speed on trails or if you’d prefer more grip and cornering from the dhr. Personally I don’t go for the speed on climbs or trail so I’d prefer the grip of the dhr on the downhills and at the park. Also just saw you said New England so if you ride pretty rocky tech stuff and kinda ride hard and aggressive the dhr might be better

That is interesting it came with Assegai front and rear. I run front and rear Assegai, but pay a big penalty on climbs. It is kind of a niche setup. I like it but it's unusual.

If you ride park, consider the DHR. It breaks free sooner than the Assegai in corners ( a lot of riders like that), but is faster, especially on climbs. If you ride a lot of enduro and trail, people also seem to prefer the DHR over dissector for aggressive riding.
