It may come down to the extra volume (true 2.8” measured at the tread) but the Vigi doesn’t feel as ‘dead’ as true DH rubber (NB. the most recent <2.4” true DH rubber I’ve been on is Schwalbe and E13 mind - not Maxxis).  It’s not a direct comparison but thinking of my time on the 2.6” TC/HG WTB tires I’d say the ride is similar to the Double Down casing from Maxxis. If Iextrapolate a DD Assegai vs a DH Assegai vs the HC Vigilante I think that adds up.  I run the same 2.8” Vigi on the front of my FS bike without an insert and love it. With 29” wheels and lots of travel I can run it soft enough and still get good support. That said, I will be trying the CC setup on the bike too for the proper comparison.  Thank you!
