    There is no much information, on internet, about that tires.Compared to maxxis tyres. But mostly comments about them is surprisingly positive. (i wos read ALL what i can find)
    In the end i bought front magi-x. And for rear i pick dhr ll maxtera 2.3 (i would go on with wild enduro 2.4 gum-x rear but allready 2.3 is too tight for my rear end on old 100mm xc bike.)
    I can not say how good this combination is compared to similar tyers. Because tires before them was trailboss light fastgrip from WTB. 2.4f/2.25r (awesome improvement from classic xc-tyres. Nice balans gripp/speed)
    But this new combo gives me the feeling that driving on loose surface is changed to hardpack. :-) Huuuge improvement in grip.
    Ofcourse. We all expect that.
    But also it is slower in climbing. Dhr ll is a slow rolling tire. And by some reviews wild enduro rear has little better rolling resistance than Dhr ll.
    Your question is Assegai vs Wild enduro front i guess.
    Hm... i beleave that Assegai in MaxGrip DD/DH is level higher in terms of grip .
    Assegai in EXO is compareble but there only is maxtera compound and as i see by forums that this new assegai exo is not the best choice. Better to pick dhf exo instead.
    If you do not care about the weight; pick Assegai DD/DH.
    If you whant lighter tyre pick Wild enduro. (because it is looks AWESOME) :-))
    BTW. Wild enduro have best shape on 25mm rim. And work the best with that size .
    Assegai on 30-35mm.

    I just got a pair of the GumX Fronts (to use Front and Rear). I never flat, so don't need the heavier casing of the Rear, plus the center tread on the Rear looks shallower.

    I did 1 short ride with them last night. Trail conditions were loose over hard. Most of the berms are blown out while the gnomes pray for rain. Grip felt just as locked in on corners descending as the Assegai. Overall braking felt better than Assegai / DHR. Climbing (through loose disturbed sand/silt on fire roads) felt a little bit better, with less spin outs.

    Some weights:
    Wild Enduro Front GumX: 1026g, 1056g
    Assegai EXO: 1158g
    DHRII WT EXO: 975g
    Magic Mary 2.35 SS: 895g, 980g

    Immediately after mounting on 30mm internal rims and airing up to 30psi, the Wild Enduro measured 2.3" at casing, 2.36" at knobs.
