Pretty good

Pretty good
I'm mostly a roadie, but I live just a few blocks from a really nice 10-mile loop of single-track that like to ride a few days a week of off days from road training and in the winter. I bought my bike used, the tires on it were completely bald, and these were the cheapest 29er tires I could find in town that looked somewhat trail-worthy. Being my first 29er I can only compare it to 26-inch tires I've used. These tires corner well and I'm able to stand on the pedals and climb without spinning out better than with other tires I've used. I'm not sure though, if that is because of the tires or the larger contact patch due to the larger diameter.

They seem bigger than 2.2, which is nice because I can run fairly low pressure without any problems. When the trails were really dry, the front tire washed out a few times on gravely corners, but no worse than other fast rolling xc tires I've used. The main weakness worth noting is that they slip easily on hard, wet surfaces like roots and rocks. I've ridden on them about 30 miles/week for the last 4 months with no noticeable signs of wear, so I imagine they'll last a long time.

Excellent tire

The rain overnight has just stopped and the terrain was moderately muddy. This tire held on the tracks without slipping. I had it in front and rear and they were just fantastic. On uphill climb I thought that I will slip on my rear but I was impressed. Never lost traction. On fast turns downhill I also never lost traction but be mindful of tiny rocks
as the knobs are close enough to pick them up and hit your down tube or worse your face. But overall, this is an excellent tire.

Great buy

This is a great choice if you want a versatile tire that works well on multiple terrain types. It has worked well for me on everything from hard-pack clay to sugar sand to my daily commute on asphalt. You get a high quality product at a very affordable price.

Negative Reviews:

Puncture resistance is disappointing.

With a name like "saguaro," I would have expected this tire to be more suited for harsh desert environments. Rolling resistance and cornering are both great, but puncture resistance is really disappointing. In addition, the wire bead on this tire is really, really tight and difficult to change on the trail with plastic tire levers.

Can't recommend this tire

I live in the desert and I thought this tire would work well for desert rock crawling, but it doesn't. It slides quite a bit. It will also wash out in the corners quite easily.
My main complaint with this tire is the bead is EXTREMELY tight on the rim. Trying to get this tire on and off with plastic tire levers is almost impossible.
