    Rampage as a rear tire?

    I'm currently rolling on a Panaracer Rampage up front and a 2.25 Cinder out back. I was wondering if anyone is running a Rampage as a rear tire and how they like it?

    It's a great rear tire. It grips everything and refuses to wash out under me. I run a WTB Weirwolf LT up front. A great combo.

    I rode a rampage out back and it does have great grip, just a bit slow. I'm looking at tires for the rear, currently have my eye on the Geax saquaro.

    I run these front and rear, too. Very similar to a nevegal (imho) and, from what I can find, about the same weight.

    I found it to be way too slow out back. Plenty of other tires with as much drive traction and better rolling resistance for the terrain I ride.

    I run it up front and and a 2.1 ignitor in the rear. Works well for me.

    Rocky as hell north jersey and loamy, rooty, gravelly Alaska.

    Rear tires I've liked:

    Crossmark
    Ignitor(but the sidewalls were too weak for my liking in NJ's sharp granite)
    Prowler
    Motoraptor
    exiwolf(occasionally)
    Ardent
    Plenty I haven't tried yet though.

    I run it up front on both of my 29ers and on the rear of my monkey.

    As Sean said, it's a little slower out back but I like the volume. I run an Ignitor on the other bike (full suspension) and it's faster but it's also lighter and doesn't have the cushion. The Exiwolf is the most comfortable tire (cushion wise) that I have ever ridden out back

    Thanks for the input guys. Seems like the consensus is that its got good grip but a little slow. I am currently running the cinder 2.25 out back and its got tons of grip but a little slow as well

    Any thoughts on the 2.2 Karma?
