Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought one of these in 2015, and I still wear it all the time and love it.

I bought another in 2017 and it's not near as nice. They are both 1/2 zip, but the zipper is noticeable longer on the new one. Material isn't quite as thick, and fits a bit bigger. I'd give one of them 5 stars and the other 3, so....

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Overall good for what it is - rolls fast with good site bite. Tubeless setup was super easy with a floor pump. As another reviewer mentioned, it does slide around a lot under braking (more than I expected), but as an XC tire that's fine. Personally, I liked the handling on my Continental X-Kings better, which are cheaper..

The deal breaker for me was that after 150-200 miles of usage I managed to tear an entire knob off the tire, which has never happened to me before. IIt happened at speed on a smooth, green-rated trail, so it's not like I was putting it through anything too nasty.

Pricey tire for that short of a life.
