Crossposting: WTB Dissent VS Kodiak

I need a bit more feedback that I’m getting on the review thread…

I’m look for hwo they compare and contrast with each other as well as how they compare or contrast with other “common” tires such as the Navegal, Stout, Rampage, Racing Ralph, etc…

I like tires that have a centerline, so more into the ride and feel of the Intense DH than the Minion, also prefer consistent outside knobbies like the Gazz Jr or Intense, don’t like the Duro as much for this reason.

Given a choice, I’d prefer a smoother straight line feel, so I guess that’s my most important question: Which one, if either, feels the smoothest on falt ground? Avoiding the deadly “whump, whump, whump” feel that comes from riding a tire like the Minion.

Thanks!
