Had a HRII on the Surface then switched to DHRII. DH bike was a combo of HRII front/DHRII rear and dual DHRII before going to Magic Marys
Yeah I've noticed the HRII compared to DHRII on 30mm Nancy carbon rims is more of a block profile, similar to the BFG ATs on my truck while the DHRII is more rounded.
I've ran a few DHFs on different bikes in various sizes/compounds and haven't really got what the circle jerk was/is about.
What this guy said. DHR II is awesome. The High Roller 2 is a good tire if it's soft or if you don't push it super hard in the corners. I find the side knobs too supple on the HR II.
I'm a fan of the Magic Mary in Vertstar for the front. I seem to mangle the side knobs on the rear though.
Like mentioned above the Vigilante is a an awesome front tire. Just mounted a High Grip version and rode it last night. Impressive braking traction, and the side knobs worked great, but it was fairly soft conditions.
I too never loved the DHF. It rolled pretty quick, but found it required a ton of lean angle to get any grip out of the side knobs. I always preferred the original High Roller.
Biking: As addictive as cocaine, twice as expensive!
