Strengths:    Decent tread design

Weaknesses:    Heavy, weak sidewalls, not as wide as advertised

Bottom Line:   
I wanted to like this tire, but I can't quite do it. I installed it tubeless on the rear for riding around Tahoe and it delivered OK but not great traction. Then during a cross country race the sidewall tore and wouldn't seal. Of all the tires I've ridden in my twenty years of mountain biking this one made the grandest claims of all-mountain performance and it's the only sidewall failure I've experienced. I know the S-Works level is flimsier, but still.
