Two questions that aren’t addressed in your post: 1) Were they the latest generation (2018) E13 tires? I have no experience with the previous lineup. 2) What width rims are you running? Anything wider than 30/31 the e13 knobbys are certainly too square. I mounted them on a 40mm ID rim and it wasn’t rideable. I have a buddy who said the same for his 35mm but I didn’t try it.  Likewise, I tried the LG1 on a 24mm ID rim and also didn’t like it.  Otherwise, it gets pretty greasy around here and I’m seeing more and more TRSr tires on the trails and people really happy with them. I quite like them and have ridden lots of sticky tires. I know quite a few folks who swear by them.  Haven’t ridden either tire in the park myself but would have guessed the harder sideknob Plus model (same centre) would last longer in the summer on lifts.  Anyways, personal preference / different strokes for sure but I am surprised how negative your experience was.
