    I've cut mine. It was nice though. Maybe just a little delicate for my area. It felt prettty quick until It cut. Got another one and cut it too so I switched to a Schwalbe with snakeskin side in the evolution series.

    Are you talking about the brand new version? This sounds like the old version...

    That's upsetting. It's an awesome looking tread. I'd still like to try it.

    After putting a hole to big for stans to seal in my rear XDX, i will be putting my 29-3(xr-3 as a 29er) on tomorrow.. If you are worried about durability, stay away from the Team Issue version. Lighter sidewalls to save weight.

    I am running Kenda slant 6 so far with out any flats. Thinking of the new XR3 for the next set of tires. I had an old version of the XR4 and it was too slow and aggressive for my liking
