 I like this tire. It seems to be a bit more grippy than High Roller (both 2.35) - has bigger knobs, rolls maybe a bit better (tragically on tarmac or hardpack, much better in the terrain). The thread has a square profile so that it favours aggresive riders, you've got to lean in corners to use the side knobs effectively.

 Very grippy, fast tires for DH.

A little heavy for AM (2.35 DH version) but not intended use.

Hard to get on rim but once installed, they won't get off the rim easily, which is good news when you ride very low pressure.

 Best tire I have tried for late fall or early spring riding in the North East. Sheds mud and leaves easy.

Bead Type - there are two main types. Kevlar/Folding Bead (lighter and ca be folded so riders can put them in their jersey pocket or hydration pack incase they rip their sidewall) and Wire/Steel Bead (heavier, cheaper, not as strong or portable, and more difficult to mount on a rim).
