WTB Dissent, new 29er x 2.5" tire

Anyone had a chance to try one of these out on a 29er uni??

Its 2.5" wide and looks like a true deep knob, beefy DH tire, but the flat looking tread profile worries me that it might have road crown issues or handle like a tractor and be hard to steer on packed or pavement surfaces (like the 3.0 Gazz)

Any experience with this bad boy yet??

I don’t think they are available yet in the 29. I think they are out the 1st of the year.
