I'm thinking about some of those new ground controls. I'm really I don't need super-ultra-mega loam chuckers when I ride in hardpack and rocks. They look like a good mix of small knobs and aggressive ones.
Put the aggressors on f/r after the forekasters didn't hold on some flattish corners, low-siding me a couple times. Much happier...I think the ground is a bit harder than the Forekasters were designed for, even if it is slippery.
The aggressors just feel more like a DH tire to me in the corners. I seem to be the only fan of these in the world, esp as a front tire.
Tried it with a Minion up front.
It is fast and has surprisingly good climbing and braking traction.
Unfortunately with the small side knobs it can not hang with the Minion in the corners and the rear was always stepping out. Total miss-match balance wise. As well it could not punch through fall and spring trail litter like leaves and pine straw as well as the Minion. I ended up with a Dissector in the rear that I like a lot.
Now, a Dissector up front with a Rekon in back I think would be a pretty good fast trail setup.
Bike was a 135/150 29r
Both the Rekon and the Dissector need bigger stouter side knobs IMNSHO
My wife's bike came dissector/rekon. It was ok. The rekon has like pretty crap climbing traction on roots or rocks, I'm sure if you live in a place where you just winch up fire roads and ride the fun stuff down they're great. Now shes happy about her DHF/dissector combo except for how much better my DHR/WTB Trailboss high grip rolls faster and still climbs better.
