 This is the review for the DHR II
I am running DHR-IIs front and rear on my Santa Cruz Nomad, and these tires are absolutely unbelievable! I am running the front tire backwards for more grip (by recommendation of my LBS), and it seems to be working great! I am riding on rocks, hardpack, and hard pack with loose gravel on top, and I have not washed out even once yet (then again I only have 2 rides). But know that on the downhills I can keep up or pass the guys who have been riding the same trails for a decade. The front mounted backwards works great! If you look at the tread, the center treads are pointed like a pyramid, and the sides have the "L" for every other knob. The pyramid works like an arrow, and helps the tire to roll better. I am assuming these "L" knobs were made this way to save weight as well as grip better on the gas (pedaling) while slightly leaned over. However, when mounting backwards for the front tire, the center tread are an upside down pyramid, so this makes them stop even better! at a sacrifice of course, because as they won't roll as nice. The "L's" on the side knobs are reversed so for the corners you should roll even better. At extreme lean angles, there is no difference between mounting forward or backwards because the surface areas of knobs are the same. I wish we could upload pics to our posts so I can give visuals!
