Riding the 2011 Nic Pacestar TL's - rolls along like a stung monkey, sub-600g yet compound grips as good or better than Black Chili. The tread pattern corners well once you dial in the pressure. I run them 25f/28r w/zero problems. Highly highly recommended…They're fast clark, fast I tell'ya.
I had these on for a couple of rides earlier this year (including Wade's Excellent Adventure) [HTML_REMOVED] I can't say I was impressed. They're a good weight [HTML_REMOVED] they roll pretty well, but I found them sketchy on the descents. They definitely didn't agree with wet rocks [HTML_REMOVED] roots. The Hans Dampfs in the Trailstar compound are better, but they're a big tire for an AM bike [HTML_REMOVED] I didn't get on with their very round profile.
I'm having good results with Minion F Exo 2.5s with the 3C compound at the moment. 3C seems to be a good compromise between too slow Super Tacky [HTML_REMOVED] borderline dangerous 60A. The sidewalls are decently thick without being too heavy [HTML_REMOVED] they work well tubeless.
Looking forward to trying some single ply High Roller II's though.
