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 centre improve braking performance and traction on hard surfaces. When gravity pulls you downhill, rely on the High Roller II to keep you upright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arcadian Super grippy tyres
Love these tyres, amazing grip from them. They pretty much drap me up wet rocks and roots where before my previous tyres would have been squirming and slipping.
Running them front and back is fun, but a bit overkill - the grip, tread and width mean a lot more effort is required for pedalling uphill so will go for a different back tyre in the near future, keep one up front and have a spare for when it wears down.
The grip does inspire a heap of confidence flying downhill, taking care on tricky sections, climbing or generally going over stuff you might otherwise slip on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barefootdigger Decent price for a decent dry weather tire
I'm reviewing the 27.5in Highroller II in 42a supertacky compound.
Ideal for dry conditions
Thin DH sidewall requires higher pressures for rocky trails.
Provides decent grip on dry ground
Low rolling resistance
The knobs aren't very tall and thus are less than ideal for loose terrain conditions
Supertacky compound isn't as grippy as say Schwalbe vertstar and provides less grip when conditions are greasy/wet
The tire isn't very tall and thus the wheel feels stiffer i.e. less confortable on rocks/roots

Rated 5 out of 5 by neil2013 great tyre
I'm running a 3c on the front and a 60a on the back and loving them. I've ridden the original HR for years but prefer these. They're not massively different to the original they just hook up that bit better especially on wet roots.

i ordered 2 high roller tyres for my bike. I ordered a 2.50 and a 2.35. when I installed the 2.5, it actually only measures out to be 2.33. so be careful when ordering the high roller if you're expecting a nice wide tyre for your ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Running the Super Tacky On both front and rear and I must say these tyres grip better than the prevous model they replace and roll equally as well. Only issue experienced is that on the front running about 25 psi, the ride when the tyre was first put on was super lively and demanding, so I reduced the pressure a few PSI and soften the fork a little and that helped alot.

Got these to replace the first High Rollers. Have to say they are very much the same in my eyes. They shed mud well and are fast rolling however, I am unsure how different these really are compared to the high roller 1. I used to run super tacky on my previous high roller tyres so maybe that's the difference given these are 3C (front) and 60A (rear) compound. Overall though, I still think the high roller is the best all round tyre available on the market, just not sure its worth the £53 compared to the first HR unless your maybe a pro rider. haha!

Whether or not this tyre is amazing or not, £53.99 is ridiculously expensive.
