One dumb trend with tires is using EXO casing on hard hitting enduro/all mountain bikes (160-180mm travel, slack geo, long wheelbase etc). I don't blame the bike companies, they know the total bike weight needs to be comparable to their competitors and adding an extra 200-300g for DoubleDown/SuperGravity is probably not worth it. EXO is fine on trail bikes of course, but I don't see how it makes sense on a 64-65deg HTA 29er with a 170mm Fox 36, coil shock etc.
