 The best tires I've ever seen in enduro & DH marathon. An excellent grip in particular when ground is dry, on sand and rocks; very efficient also on mud. Moreover these tires are very nice, light and cheap compared to their high quality.

There is only one aspect a few less positive, its durability is less important thant that of maxxis for example (high roller, cross mark...) but sufficiently correct in mountain.

 this is my new favourite tire for everything but deep mud and loose gravel. the side knobs are on the small side (they sound like a ziptie when slipping). i run the 1.95, cant wait to find the ust version.

 This tire is amazing for the front. The knobs are perfectly spaced and basically just the right size. This tire is perfect for loose over hard and actually did pretty well in mud. It wears a little too fast though.

 Good grip in climbs and braking. Makes a cool sound when on hard packed dirt and the road. They took a long time to wear out too.

WTB Wolverine-Race (MSRP $50) — In the wild, wolverines are known to attack anything, often preying on much larger animals. On the trail, the Wolverine confidently tackles dicey descents, flies across flats and devours steep climbs. This fast-rolling tire’s moderately-spaced tread pattern combines plentiful working edges that cling to hardpack and outside knobs that let you shred corners. Like its namesake, the Wolverine’s slight profile belies its fierce bite.
