My 2 cents
I’m running 27” BW evos. ...love them...there was a tire test a yr or so ago that the Kenda bearclaw HTR tested way above the rest noted above. They placed in the top 3-4 out of 30-40 tested and the only ones above them were smaller sizes(couldn’t get 27” or above) ...My BW placed way down like 15th, very surprised. Had I found this out prior to purchase, I would have got the HTR.
Test had all the key tests of a good all around tire. Uphill, downhill braking, pulling, mud, etc.
