I'm impressed with this front tyre.
I went straight into practice and race day in the Ballo Enduro having fitted this tyre. This was a blind Enduro with no prior knowledge of the tracks. Tracks were steep, natural and dry/loose/loamy on the day.
Grip is confidence inspiring. Support from the carcass is good. Really can't fault it. Fitted it to a 28.4mm internal width rim (Michelin say it is optimised for 30mm) and it had a really good shape. Just measured it at 61mm across both the carcass and knobs @23psi (which is 2.4" exactly).
Haven't had any experience with it in wet conditions yet and can't comment on the wear. It is a little bit slow rolling on the road, just like all other tyres with this much grip, but not objectionably; its perfect for big days out on the bike thrown in with some big terrain.
