    My advice: if you'll be doing true DH runs on this tire, don't worry about the weight. It's more important to be able to get to the bottom of the hill.

    If this tire is intended for more aggressive AM riding, go with the single ply 2.5 with Exo-Protection. The weight is roughly 845 grams, and it rolls much faster than the dual ply DH version. The Exo-Protection is extremely tough, so you shouldn't worry about sidewall cuts.

    I rock the single ply exo and it stands up to the rocky trails of colorado (so far) and weighed in at 855 for the 2.5

    Yes. But the 2.5 is a small 2.5 about size of nevegal 2.35 and the minion 2.35 is the size of the 2.1 just to give you a idea of volume

    The 2.35 might be a little small for the stated size but certainly NOT a 2.1! unless you're comparing to Nevegals which are oversized. In fact the 2.35 DHF's are bigger than many 2.35 offerings from other makers including Hutchinson and Michelin so I have to laugh at all this 2.1 talk.

    Have FUN!
