I only ride offroad. I find the shinko 241 great in all conditions so far. The best thing about it is it tracks and steers smoothly where more aggressive treads can jerk your wheel around on sharp rocks and roots. It is popular with desert riders and I love it for the snow. It is ok in mud in my limited experiences with it. The treads clear them selves well if you don't ride too slowly. There may be better tires for some conditions but the 241 is a great all around multi use tire. I had the 244 before and the 241 soft rubber knobs really grab like nothing else.
