Adding the CushCore didn’t change anything about how fast and efficient the tires roll. I’ve ridden this bike (V1) as a mountain bike with 2.8” tires front and rear, as an ‘ATB’ with 2.6” semi-slicks, with a pair of 2.0” XC tires on carbon wheels, and with this setup. The 40c setup is way faster and more efficient. I’m not ‘mountain biking’ on my gravel rig, just linking stuff together with light trails some of which are a bit greasy this time of year. I’m balancing traction - particularly on the steep gravel climbs home from work - and efficiency with reliability.
