Strengths:    Integrated flat protection system, aggressive tread and very nice on the price.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
These tires offer tremendous value. I like the width the tire offers. I like to ride a 2.3, that's why I picked these tires out. After reading the width, you probably get that these are not xc specific tires, these are free ride tires at their best. I ran them on my hard tail all last summer. I rode all summer long with no flats. I will not give all the credit to these tires, for I am also running slime in my tubes. But however I have ran slime with other tires and I have gotten flats before. So maybe its the tires? The tread is gnarly and even rides well on asphalt on the days that I commute to work. Better yet my local bike shop keeps these on hand and they are only $26 a tire. Throw these on your freeride/all mountain bike. You wont regret it. I run these on all my mountain bikes. My hardtail and FS setup.

Strengths:    performs well in every situation.Very good mud shedding tire. Lightweight for size. Ability to run LOW tire pressures.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
One of the best tires I have ever used. I like to run very low tire pressures, and this tire has been awesome. I rarely have pinch flats, and I normally run down to 24 psi. This tire is very light for an all around trail shredder.I can't seem to kill these tires. Compound is soft, but seems to last as long as tires with higher durometers. Just bought another set today. My last set is still on my Instigator, and I use this bike for all mountain and freeride. After nearly two years, they still perform wonderfully.

Anybody running Panaracer Swoop?

I searched every where for a review of these tires, but no one seems to be running them. They look very good on paper with a very attractive price (<$30/tire), 2.4 size, decent weight (listed 730gm) and the tread pattern looks pretty decent if a bit old school (kinda looks like a Nobby Nic?), and t ...

Endurance passion: Squashed and inspried in one fell swoop!

So I was driving from Raleigh back home to Sanford, NC today before noon. Saw a couple bikes on US1 (big, divided highway, 65mph), first thinking "what a couple idiots", but then noticed they had full on paneers, and were loaded down. Thought about stopping to tell them how close they were to Old ... Read More »
