Lower weight, lower rolling resistance, better grip. It slices through terrain with its "sharks-tooth" U-Blocks that make it grip much more aggressively, particularly in curves.

When I got to the 2.1" size I found that the tire had to be deflated to about 15 psi to get the wheel on or off the bike. That is, of course I unhooked the brake caliper so the pads moved apart, but that was not enough.
My bike was engineered to barely take this size. Still, the farthest corners of the tread on one edge at the back would rub the frame once every rotation. I wrapped and taped sandpaper around the frame and in about 4 miles I go 0.5mm more clearance which solved that.
The I found braking was odd. I finally figured that the brake caliper's arms were hugging the sides of the tire. I will need fresh brake pads or some washers as spacers.
So if you're trying the maximum width expect some problems -- or anticipate it may be impossible to fit it on your bike.
