Strengths:    The best all around tire I have ever used. Fast and long lasting on the street. Capable of real off road use.

Weaknesses:    Slight lateral sliding on loose stuff, but its perdictable.

Bottom Line:   
I use my bike for weekend trail riding, commuting to work, and just playing around town. I looked for a long time to find a good all purpose tire. I am very happy with this one.

Strengths:    Fast rolling resistance so can be used on road no problem, grip and climb very well in hardpack to loose over hardpack.

Weaknesses:    The dont like to go off camber in heavy loose over hardpack

Bottom Line:   
Great allround tire, can be used on road no worries and still grip on trails with no worries. Climb well and break well. Can run high pressure, not to good at low pressure as side walls are soft. Long lasting. If you ride on road and also on trails this is for you. I havnt had rain yet to try them out in mud.

Strengths:    rolls very smoothly on macadam, but can also can be used
on hardpack, railroad beds and minorly rocky trails. very durable.

Weaknesses:    mud and true railroad ballast

Bottom Line:   
These tires excel at the commuter level as well as forest roads and most reilroad grades (that have the original surfaces replaced by gravel). I use them to ride very long
distances to my mtn exploring and with some caution on extreme surfaces I find they function in most conditions. If; during commutng, you run 4/5 pressure they are still pretty efficient and let you float over bumps. And best is that high lean angles on macadam have no knobs to affect the turn and yet hang at angle in the offroad fairly well.
