Try the Metzeler MC360 mid hard . Its road legal and grips awesome on hard pack . I haven't used it on the road yet though . Its wearing very well so far on the trail .

Pirelli xc mid hard would be good option also and slightly better on dirt then the xtra x but will wear quicker on bitumen.

I've got a mid hard rear and mid soft front - very happy on and off road, wet or dry. Wear rate seems good too..done roughly 300ks on road

I'll back this up, I've got a mid-soft on the rear of my 300 and can say it's been a fantastic tyre. It's held up well on the bitumen and worn extremely well in the mud, hard pack and rocks. Done over 300+km on it and it's still has plenty of knob left, beauty is that there rotatable too. Going to go the mid-hard next as a set, think they will be more suited for my riding conditions. Great tyre!

Interesting that you say your going to go the mid hard next , I was thinking of going the mid soft next . By your experience with the mid soft it's sounds good . I think that it might suit my terrain better . I can't fault the rear but the front feels a little bit vague and ordinary in the sand . But they are wearing so well it might be a while before I change them .
