These are excellent all around except deep mud. The rubber is great for gripping rocks and roots. They feel great in the corners and can absolutely fly. I used these XC racing quite a bit. I prefer the high rollers now for fun riding, but these will always go on my XC rig.

Coming from some Geax tires to these was a huge change for me and it gave me confidence in corners again. I never really knew what it meant to stick in the turns until I got these. These work great in dry hard pack and decent on loose of hardpack.
I've used these in a couple XC races and have done pretty good. I ride a 2.35 up front and a 2.1 in the back and in good conditions this set up fly's!
If you are riding in Mud these have a tendancy to get mud stuck inbetween the knobs making traction not so great in real wet muddy conditions. But what tire really excells in this anyway.
Lately I've been running this in the back with an ardent up front
Hi! Just wondering if anyone knows how these tires perform on wet roots and clay-based soil. Any other recommendations for a cold, wet mountain climate?
Wet roots? As good as the next I suppose. As far as wet clay goes, if you're talking sloppy wet peanut butter, these probably aren't your jams. The knobs are a bit close together and smidge shallow. But as the clay dries, these tires become more at home. The packed tacky trail is where these mofos really shine.
I really enjoy the Ignitors in everything except the extreme wet and extreme powdery dusty dry.
I bought the Maxxis Ignitor Mountain Bike Tires after they were recommended by KC (see his review below) and after riding them for a few hundred miles, I am very impressed with their performance. I'm running the 70a, 26x2.10 Tubeless with the Shimano WH-M778 front wheel on my Yeti ARC and for me, it is the perfect front tire. From Utah to Oregon, I have encountered various trail types and soil compounds this summer - the Maxxis Ignitor has provided great cornering grip, minimal rolling resistance and zero flats (so far), regardless of the trail conditions.
Great tire...hooks up on everything. It's great in sand, mud, and holds it's own on hardpack. A couple downsides are that they're a little heavier than some and they lose all tacky-ness when it's cold outside...definitely a warm-weather tire.
i have these in 29" and they rock. had nevegals and i thought maybe id see more flats with these, but no way. these ignitors are sick! go low pressure and stick to everything. i have them on some stans flows (wide rim) and never had a pincher. i ride mostly technical stuff with lots of rocks and roots here. not a lot of big climbs or descents.
This tires grip as good as any when it comes to dry, loose terrain- and flat out kill it on the tacky trails. These are definitely my favorite rubs
tires are relative.... the performance is compared to your previous tire, your previous tire size.
these tires roll easy, grip and climb well, and absorb the bumps well.
I bought the larger 2.3 inch size, and they feel large, balloony, and not a lot of sidewall stiffness, so they have lateral play.
i am comparing to a Nevegal, and will say the nevegal is a great tire, more stiff, and better at cornering.
I like the maxis ignitor. These tires are reasonably light and they climb well.
My bike uses 26x2.00 tires,
Will 26x2. 10 work?
Yes, a 2.1 will work. You can use almost any width tire if you have the frame clearance.
For trail riding in Park City it's hard to beat this tire. Rolls fast and corners on rails. 26" or 29", my tire of choice. I wish they offered the 29 in a 2.35, though.
