The open and aggressive tread design gives the High Roller II excellent soil penetration and mud clearing ability. A square profile provides a solid, consistent feel across the knobs. Modified knobs on the shoulder and center improve braking performance.

I purchased this tire to replace the OEM tire that came with my high end mountain bike. The reviews looked good, and the price was right. Tire performed great for 3 rides of about 15miles on hard pack fire roads. On the 4th ride, tire exploded on me. It tore just slightly above the bead. I quickly contacted Maxxis for help. Sent pictures in. 3 days later, they asked me to mail tire to them for additional inspection. Then a week goes by (after they received it). I continued to follow up with them (politely), and finally received my reply ..(3 weeks after opening my claim later) "NON-warrantable failure- tire was punctured." I'm sure you can see from my picture.. That is not where you take a puncture! And from hardpack?? Not at all likely. Needless to say.. Some other company gets all the business for my 5 tubeless bikes from now on. Shameful. I've read this failure in several other reviews as well.
With this on the back, and a 2.4 Ardent up front, my new Scott Genius is finally living up to it's potential. Big, wide side knobs let me throw it over hard into the switchbacks with full confidence. Even when I push too hard, these tires just slip a little then grab again. And I'm running 25 psi in front and 30 in back. They even grip good on wet roots. The trails here in Miami defy description, surface type is "everything". Roots, sand, loose and packed, dry and wet, Hard clay, loose rocks, rock outcrops, you name it. And it changes drastically by season, and sometimes by the hour. These two Maxxis tires don't seem to have a problem with any of it. Only about 60 miles on them so far, will update if my opinion changes.
Update 2/26/15: Only more impressed with these tires. I have about a thousand miles on them now, and a couple months ago I upgraded the rims to 33mm wide Vuelta all mountains. The traction laying over in fast corners is just sick. Leaves you...
This is my initial review, as I received them a few days ago, mounted them and rode them one day. I'll update my findings later on once I have a good impression of their ride qualities. I purchased the 29x2.3 inch, dual compound version and mounted them to Stan's Flow EX rims.
Amazon delivered very fast (I have prime). When I first got them I unpacked them, unfolded them and left them out overnight on their sides. I think this allows the bead to unkink and makes mounting them easier. After removing my old tires (Schwalbe Hans Damf and Nobby Nic combo) and gently scraping out the dried up sealant (gross) I inspected the rim tape to make sure it wasn't peeled off or damaged. The Maxxis tires have pretty stiff sidewalls and the bead was a little tight. I worked the bead around almost all the way on by hand then with the help of a tire lever gently slid the last several inches over the lip of my rim. Once the tires were on the rim I squirted some soapy water onto the sides of...
