    Anyone dislike the High Roller 2 up front?

    I dunno if it's the soft side knobs of the 3C model I'm using that are too soft and folding over, but I could not get along with this tire up front.

    Any heavier guys tried it and care to comment? I'm on the 29x2.3 model, running tubeless.

    I'm a little annoyed how this tire gets pretty much nothing but praise and I don't like it, even after playing with tire pressures.

    Great rear tire but I could never make it work up front either.

    What size/compound did you try? 29x2.3 3C (Maxx Terra) up front didn't do it for me...

    I put it on the rear and love it for more gravity oriented stuff. A little draggy on the uphill but great otherwise.

    It's great for the rear, but did not like it on the front either. I also didn't like my maxxis minion on the front as well which are similar. I found them both to want to slide out on turns in loose conditions.

    I think it has to do with the gap between the inner knobs and the outer knobs. There is like a 1/4 inch gap between them and when leaning and turning the wheel just right I think that gap causes the tire to slide.

    I look for a tire that has knobs in that gap area when selecting a front tire.
    Get out of the gutter and onto the mountain top.
