I destroyed 6 EXO tires due to tears and cuts and blown beads in 2018.
In 2019 I got the CC Pro, I went through 3 only due to tread wear. I didn't flat once, didn't tear once, and was still using plain EXO's and doing a fair amount if lift access and way more trail riding. I carry bacon strips and didn't end up having to use them (knock on wood) once.
I agree with whoever above - best $150 I ever spent on a bike since dropper posts got invented.
