#!markdown This. The 'gen 1' \+ tires seem to kind of suck. Universally (some more than others, maybe. but not really enough to matter). Maybe the next round will be better, but if they are… they're going to be heavier, because they need more sidewall to cure some of the squirminess and sketchiness under load. The current bible pages they've got for sidewalls just aren't going to cut it for "the hard-charging crowd". \+ bikes are currently a 'quiver' bike, not an 'only' bike. You can take most current 'all mountain/enduro' bikes pretty much everywhere from 8 hour epics to the bike park. You're going to be pretty unhappy on A-line on the current crop of + tires. At the end of it all… How much more tire do you need than a 2.4 or 2.5?
