 I think this is a really good allround tire. I've used mine for street as well as world cup downhill tracks, local freeride trails and dirtjumps. The hook up really well on loose soil but when it comes to hardpack and mud I usually have to reduce the tire pressure just a little bit to get better traction. The best think about this tire is its longevity, as long as you don't pull 20ft skidmarks on the pavement they will last a really long time.

 I have used these for every different discipline and despite their minimal-looking design, they mange to find grip almost everywhere. They are light enough for cross country and burly enough for a bit of heavier stuff. I highly recommend them, a true jack of all trades

 I use it for xc/freeride, and I'm very pleased. Advantage looks nice with wide rim - I've got size 2.1 but they seems like 2.5. Gum is strong. After 500km in every grounds (often hard like muds, forests) there is no using trace. Great tiresSmile

 Currently running the 2.25 (sure it says 2.3 on it!) on the front. Super grippy and soft. Stops very well, actually too well sometimes and it chatters across the ground like a car with ABS on gravel.
Pros: Grippy on most surfaces. Nice slack bead for easy changing.
Cons: Quick ware. GAY graphics.

 I run these tires on the Chromag Stylus AM hardtail in the 2.4 size with the wire bead and they work out quite well so far. In dry conditions or on loose and rocky underground they offer a good amount of traction and corner quite well. Only on really wet underground they sometimes tend to loose grip (which may be a result of the rather hard rubber durometer of 60/62)...but all in all they help you keep control of your bike and they are definitely more resistant against pinch flats than the Continental Mountain Kings I used before.

 brilliant xc and all mountain tyre but has a just about the right amount of tread for smooth road riding aswell, had them for about 9 months and only just need replacing!

 Amazing tyres, good durability, awsome in the wet and dry, and best of all lots of grip round those loose corners!

 Using this on the front on hardpack is the best. It's reasonably light, cheap and doesn't feel "draggy".

Maxxis Advantage (MSRP $47) — Alison Dunlap designed the ADvantage as a high volume aggressive cross country tire that corners great on big side-knobs. It also climbs and brakes with authority thanks to the opposing parallelogram center tread design. Ramped center knobs keep rolling resistance minimal and the wide lug spacing sheds mud easily. Opposing parallelogram with aggressive side knob Front or rear.
