    Yes - especially in dry hardpack conditions. I've only run it tubeless on wide XC rims (28mm external rim width) with appropriate air pressure to get good bite for corners. It's still a favorite in the Midwest on 26"ers and 29"ers.

    Love mine on the front during the summer. I use it on a set of blunts set up tubeless. I put the big ole weirwolf LT back on for the winter and am really missing the nano on the front.

    Thanks guys.We have mixed rocky sandy hardpack here almost always dry.I have been
    running a s-works captain 2.0 it grips good in front and is light but rolling resistance is just
    ok.maybe I will pick up a Nano.The thing the concerns me is we have a lot of loose decomposed
    granite corners and tires like the weirwolf will HURT you here.Thanks again.

    Nano Front Tire

    I have used and seen many other pro mtbr's in CO use the Nano's for front and rear. I liked it as a front tire, but the side walls are fairly thin which makes them prone to tears. I am still debating what I will use in the front next year. The traction and rolling resistance are excellent, and it is a pretty high volume tire.
