 Rode the 2006, 2007 and 2008 versions. When my last pair of 2008 is done, I'm eager to test the 2009 2.4" foldable ones. Good grip, good for downhilling, keeps you fast and fastened to the ground. Won't let you stick to the ground though, like Muddy Maries will. Good all-around Tire you can use for Dirt Jumping, Freeride, Downhill, 4X or any mountain adventure.

 Rolls Fast, Amazing Grip, Corners better than my old nevegals on the back, its an awesome tire for dh/fr use. No flats to report of yet, or major slashes on the sidewalls or tire itself, we ride in alot of rocky terrain up here

 Great tire for AM/ light freeride/ f*cking around. Holds well, but doesn't hook so much that it tries to toss you. It's light, durable, and rolls super fast for how much traction it has.
