Have used these tires for a bit over two years now, and find them satisfactory for most conditions. I run them at close to 80psi most of the time, and down to 60psi on rough trails. Not a pure mountain bike tire by any means, but can take on most gravel, dry dirt, grass and small rocks with ease. Gets a bit squirrelly in wet conditions and larger rock. Runs very smoothly on dry roads. I am very confident on these tires as the tread and construction appear very solid and puncture resistant. Only reason I would change tires would be to go more aggressive for off-road wet and large rock conditions.
This tire is amazing, most confident inspiring, super fast on everything, hooks up in the corners, and yet brakes like it was made specifically for each one of those characteristics. Absolutely amazing! The center tread is a bunch of hexagons but they are at a slight angle, sorta like fish scales, fast rolling but the edges dig in and hook up when braking and cornering.
After, 3,700 miles on the Great Divide, i would recommend the Allaround over the Bite for better durability and less likely to flat in thorn country, i.e., New Mexico.
