Panaracer Rampage 26x2.35

Anybody have experience with Panaracer Rampage 26x2.35?

http://www.panaracer.com/eng/product...html#rampage26

There are a few reviews on MTBR, but not enough to be statistically significant.

My style is somewhere between XC and Freeride. I rank durability/reliability a bit higher than weight. I like the larger volume tires, but I don't want a downhill specific tire. I hate pinchflats. I've been running Fire XC Pros for years and they are probably my fav tire, but I want to run something a bit wider in front.

If you search for "Rampage" and "shiggy" on mtbr you will find my comments. The short version in on the main page of my tire site.

In general, great tire.

Shiggy, thanks for the info on the Rampage. I like your website. 20 years ago, I remember riding on Farmer Johns or FJ's Cousins. Yeah, tires have come a long way since then.

I just put a 29x2.35" rampage on the front of my bike. That thing just bites in the corners. I can lean as hard as I like and it holds. Unfortunately, the rear is an Exiwolf and it does not hold as well. Some fishtailing is the result.
