    Great tires for soft soil If you ride hardpack look at the HighRoller.
    Nothing to see here.

    I have a pair of 2.1's that I olny break out for rainy, muddy conditions. They stick to everything and corner and climb well. They are especially useful around this time of year when you have a lot of wet leaves on the trail. The only drawback to them is that they add a lot of rolling resistance and are not fun to pedal up long fire roads. I can't imagine pedaling a pair of 2.5's. If you will be using them for downhill or shuttle runs they will work great.

    I ran a 2.5 on the back of my FR HT over the winter. Mix of snow/ice/mud/dirt and it worked pretty well, soft compound nice to have when you have wet/muddy tires over roots and rocks too. I swapped it out when things dried up, since a soft compound tire will wear quickly on the rear and be worthless in soft conditions after that.

    For the right conditions they are a good choice.
