Michelin DH22 / DH34 Experience?

I'm after all the grip. Don't care about the weight. Reviews seem super duper positive as far as grip goes. But, I'm wondering if these tires will be as hard in the cold as the Magi X2 Wild Enduro was. Perhaps not all Magi X2 rubber is the same?

So, do you have experience with the DH22 and/or DH34 in North Van / Sea to Sky? If so, thoughts? Tires are going on my "big" bike. I get the wire beads, slow rolling, weight, etc. I'm curious about grip, casing feel and braking performance.

And, do these also harden up like crazy in the cold? I'll need new tires in September or October and want something I can run in the cold / slippery season on the Shore through winter.

Not looking for Maxxis recommendations (plenty of experience with those including Maxx grip varieties). Looking specifically for info on the Michelins noted above. Thanks!

I just installed a DH22 29 / Wild Enduro Rear 29 on my G16.  So far I'm liking the DH22. Hoping the knobs lastlonger than the Wild Enduro Magi X2 that I had on there before.  Casing is more HD than the W.E. so hoping for extra support.  The tyre is slooooow. Like felt the resistance from the W.E. to this. No thoughts on the cold. I'm pretty certain they're still a folding bead.  Seemed to handle wet root and rocks fine last friday. 

I'd likely go DH22 F/R in winter. DH22/DH34 F/R rest of year. I don't know the weight penalty of DH22/34 to W.E. enough to really care tbh as bike in question is 170/175 29 w/61º HTA.

I simply set up a DH22 29 / Wild Enduro Rear 29 on my G16. So some distance I'm liking the DH22. Hoping the knobs last longer than the Wild Enduro Magi X2 that I had on there before. The casing is extra HD than the W.E. so hoping for added support. The tyre is slow. Like felt the  resistance from the W.E. to this. I'm quite positive they are nevertheless a folding bead. Seemed to address moist root and rocks best final Friday.

Well I installed some DH22s yesterday and will give them a good trashing over the coming months. We'll see how they hold up in the cold.
