In one word, yes they are more than capable.

We havent' gotten any Deity Vendetta's yet so we can't say which is lighter.

Highrollers aren't too bad.

I'd stick with a 3c or 42t compound. The 70 compound will be a bit too much and stiff (but will last longer). I'd recommend a 2.5 on Maxxis' as they size a bit...

I really like the 3c tires as well (2.5 variant for me though). The 2.5 3c's are about 100g heavier each tire than a comparable 2.5 Maxxis DH (42/40/ST) so i'd assume the 2.7's are the same way.

It works quite well for dirt jumping and urban. If you want a stiff setup though with it make sure to use a thru bolt / axle setup and not a quick release.
