Strengths:    great traction for such a fast roller

Weaknesses:    price. pacestar (non-snakeskin) version doesn't seal well tubeless.

Bottom Line:   
Very light tire. Great traction over hardpack, loose over hard, rock, as good as anything else in sand (but that's not saying much); not so good in muddy conditions. I like everything about this tire except the high price, and the fact that it is designated as tubeless ready, but it does not seal up well with Stan's/Slime. I've had it for about 3 months- installed per Stan's directions, have as many miles as possible on it between snow storms so it has rotated with the sealant a lot, and it stills seeps through little pin-holes in the sidewall. I have a Nobby Nic with Snakeskin sidewall and it sealed up in a snap. The non-Snakeskin version of the Ra-Ra is a little dissapointing tubeless. Still a great performing tire on the trail.
