Strengths:    good for a stock tire has a pretty long life compared to some

Weaknesses:    easaly penitrated

Bottom Line:   
i used these for winter and off road replaced for commuting wit the tioga and the hardrock. for a stock tire there a good tire they dont hook up like the velociraptors but they shead mud better and last longer too. the togia are well toast and the hardrock is a joke so in my opion there not bad at all but there are diffentally better tires out there and there diffentallly alot worse one too.

Strengths:    rear:great traction for any surface other than pavement, lots of roling resistance(keeps you fit), noisy (hikers hear you coming)

Weaknesses:    wear quickly, lots of pinch flats

Bottom Line:   
the rear tyre corners well and will climb anything as long as you legs will crank you up. sheds mud and even holds well on wet roots and rocks. 75% worn after only 7 months of riding on various terrain.
front tends to wash out but my skill level is ever improving and I'm not sure if it is me or the tyre.
5* for rear, 3* for front

Lumpy works well in gravy

lumpy only work well in gravey

Bottom Line:   
Good tire for lose and muddy, really chuncky. large spaces between tread blocks lots of rolling resitance. Great tire if you use them in only wet and muddy conditions.
