Bontrager XR Mud Team Issue tyre review, Singletrack Magazine, November 2017:
"On the trail the first thing noticeable is that these are fast, both in terms of the weight and the rolling resistance. On soft ground the usual drag is hardly noticeable and once you hit the gloop they keep biting resulting in very little slippage, even whilst out of the saddle. Cornering is reassuringly predictable once those angled shoulder knobs bite and they feel as stable and comfortable on rough terrain that you'd expect from a much fatter tyre. The only surface on which they struggled was wet cobbles, but I've yet to find a tyre that can cope with those so itâ€™s hardly a negative.
They... performed exceptionally well in the sorts of muddy bogs that many other non-mud specific tyres would have you off and walking. That's not really a surprise though. What was surprising was the extent to which they performed as all-rounders. I'd have no problem with leaving either of these on for the whole year, and have done just that on one of my bikes. It seems that the old days of winter tyres being only suitable for the really crappy months are gone - these tyres are far more versatile than their predecessors."
