Bontrager XR5 tyre review, Mountain Biking UK magazine, May 2018:
"Bontrager's XR5 is based on one of our favourite mixed-conditions tyres, the SE5 but uses a lighter, more supple casing. In the 29x2.3in size (there's a 27.5x2.3in version too) it weighs 847g, versus 995g for the SE5. It uses the same dual-compound (soft shoulders, harder centre) rubber but it's 120tpi casing is appreciably suppler, so feedback through the bar is minimal over small roots and chatter. It rolls faster too. The soft compound and we;;-spaced tread offer impressive grip in slippery conditions, especially loose soil and light mud. It's prone to squirm at low pressures, though, and comes up a little narrow (2.2in on a 25mm rim) so won't hold a line in the rough like some fatter tyres. We've not punctured one yet, but it wouldn't be our choice for rocky trails. In soft, rooty conditions, it's a top tyre."
