I share the same general frustration. From what I can tell, Bonty isn't even MaxxTerra level soft in their SE series, otherwise they look great. It's easy to find ultra soft front tires for my heavier smashy wheelset, but it's pretty limited for the long-days trail wheelset that I run most of the time. I'm in Seattle so our rides are often longer climbs, softer dirt, less rock, allowing lighter sidewalls. Here's the entire list of ultra gooey super soft front tires in trail weight, that I know of. * Maxxis EXO+ MaxxGrip: DHR, DHF, Assegai * e.thirteen MoPo Trail. Amazing rubber, but I've got two beefs with it: too square for my 32mm rims (my fault for running stupid rims), and the center knobs are low so it doesn't brake well in goo * Conti Baron and Kaiser in Black Chili? I haven't tried them, and seems to be a love-hate with these. Schwalbe is laying an egg by not offering ultra-soft in their promising looking Super Trail casing. The Mary is a such a great tire in the winter if you're willing to lug around Super Gravity.
