 I ran a 2.35in DH Excavator as a rear tire for downhill racing during most of my 2010 race season and I loved it. It rolled really and broke hard, and it lasted a long time. My only complaint is the price, who can afford to pay over $100 for a set of tires.

 this product is a great chose for a front tire usualy people run it in the back for more traction but it just causes unwanted drag but in the front it will not slip off of anything. i recommend you to use this tire up front with the nevegal in the back.

 This is my new fav. Used it for the entire summer and never made me regret buying them. Never really liked the Nevegals. But this bad boy holds the line and hooks up great. And feels very predictable in soft, loamy, and loose soil such as Mammoth or Big Bear. Will be on all my AM/DH bikes.

 awesome tire for any condition. I've had a 2.35 DTC up front since early last spring and it has barely worn down. definitely as good as or better than the nevegal i had before.

 The 2.1 works great for All Mountain riding. Fast for the amount of traction. Good year round traction in dust and mud. Fairly durable when pumped up.

 2.35 DTC is the best tire I've ever used for riding in New England. If you live in the North East US, this should be your tire.

 Awesome tires, not the lightest or fastest but by far one of the best gripping tires ever created! 2.35 are definitely wider than 2.35 which is fine by me!
