Love it as a rear. Rode it today in the snow slop and it hooks up great. In lots of conditions. Wish they made a 2.4 and I'd run it in the front. Although I have tune it in the front and it was quite nice. I just like something a bit beefier on the front.
Yeah as for lighter? I think you will be hard pressed to find a tire as knobby that weighs less.

I thought they were pretty light, but that's coming from a rider who rides tires 300 grams heavier on my other bikes and I'm not bothered in the least. My only complaint with them is I wish they offered them in a sticky compound to run up front.
