Hmm, Andrew did you ride the Rock Razor or only the Slaughter or SS? The reason I ask is that of the 3, the Rock Razor has the most rounded profile/modest side knobs, and comparative reviews confirm lower rolling resistance for it compared to the other two (especially the SS). The reason I ask, is that I have loved my Rock Razor, and not experience the sudden changes you describe. At the same time, I tried a 2.8 Chupa(XR2) and after one gentle corner that was a bit greasy it just flew out from under me, so I ditched it. I was about to get another Rock Razor, but then I read this, and I do like the idea of the 2.6 for some extra cushion/compliance over funky roots and rocks, so the SE2 sounds interesting. Also our local trails are mostly hardpack, or loose over hardpack, or bedrock, so the SE2 should do well, we have very little loose loam or sand.
