 I love these tires. Very lightweight, low rolling resistance, excellent grip, and good tread life. I run the 2.4 along with the Stan's "No Tube" kit. This allows me to run the PSI pretty low thus giving me the foot print of a 2.5 but the weight of a 2.3 tire! Because it is a lightweight tire the sidewalls are kinda thin and they will flex. I have used mine for DH riding and racing and they've held up nicely. Just be aware of that. Lastly, they're affordable. :-)

 I find these tires grip anything that I throw at them, like mud, loose dirt, sand, rockgardans, and grass. I can go through a low burm and have no problems, but I see other riders riding different brands and they will be slipping, unless they are going slower than I am. Can't say a bad thing about them.

 Fast rolling, great volume, AWESOME transition area, gives up very predictably and slides nicely. An outstanding rear tire.
