    You're all downhillers so it makes sense.

    I think even if I did xc I would use the high rollers. Durable and fast rolling. For me the choice is cause of the terrain. Even the xc courses here work better with the type of tires. Hooks up well in multiple terrains (whistler changes terrain type 4 times during any given climb/descent)

    Kenda would be my other tire of choice (which I had to buy cause of my 24" wheel on the bighit)

    For southeastern US mixed terrain, wet/dry, I like WTB. I'm now on Motoraptors.

    Although downhill is fun, I'm more of a freerider. Maxxis is freeride/downhill for the most part.

    I can only compare the two types I've tried:

    Maxxis Mofo XC - heavy as lead, ultra hard rubber, good for in town and not much else.

    Hutchinson Python AirLite - lite for a big 2.0, great grip, fast rolling, cost a fortune.

    I think my next pair of tires will be Nokian NBX 2.0 Lite, I've heard good things about them, and loved my Nokian winter tires on my old car.

    I have a Vittoria front tire called a Kudo.that thing grips like a pair of vise grips in bad conditions but it is so soft I rarely use it.its the only tire Ive used that does not slide in deep sand. my trailblasters slide but predicably. I got it at a bike shop for only $20 too, about 4 years ago. excellent tire

    #1 - Panaracer Fire XC Pros (127 tpi made in Japan. Not the 66 tpi).

    #2 - IRC Serac- came with a new rig, thought I would hate them, but they're not bad!

    FWIW - I am more XC than DH, riding mainly loose over hardpack and hardpack, dry conditions typical of Southern CA.

    Couldn't find it in the area. Had to settle for something else.
