 Smooth rolling tire. Very grippy on everything but mud(doesn't shed too well). It can be run tubeless(using Stan's) on tubeless rims or using a ghetto tubeless set up on other rims. I have them mounted on Shimano Freeride rims and run them at 20psi front and 25psi rear with great success(190lb rider)

 Exceptional tire, it has a thicker casing than other similar Kevlar beaded options so you don't pinch flat. The tread works great in most conditions, but packs a little in sticky mud (likely because of the knurled casing). Corners very well at speed also.

 Possibly the grippiest tyre i've ever ridden. Fast rolling, good in loose conditions and looks good too.

WTB Prowler MX 2.5-Race (MSRP $50) — The MX (Motocross) utilizes the same aggressive transitions and outside knobs as the Prowler XT, but features a shifted center tread. The MX is a highly predictable tire at speed, boasting deep-piercing lateral grip in loose conditions. The 2.5-inch version excels on treacherous descents and high-speed chutes while the MX 2.1-inch thrives on epic, day-long trail rides.
