Strengths:    Very good in the loose stuff. Good volume. Smooth for full rigid. Very easy for tubeless setups. Very lightweight for an AM tire.

Weaknesses:    Not particularly quick in all kinds of terrain, soft sidewalls. A bit expensive for what they are.

Bottom Line:   
I would recommend this to someone who does a lot of trail style of riding. I am predominately a trail rider and I do a lot of XC stuff because that is what is readily available where I ride. With lower inflation the sidewalls are a bit soft so they flop a bit. They are very light of a trail/AM tire. If I was an enduro racer, these would be an excellent pair of tires in the S-Works flavor. However, there are better tires out there for people who do a little bit of everything.

Strengths:    Weight, traction, durability, rolling resistance, 2Bliss setup

Weaknesses:    Average longevity

Bottom Line:   
This came as stock on my 2011 Stumpjumper and I've been very pleased with it. So much so that I have replaced it and placed a pair on my SS 29er as well. It strikes a great balance between weight, durability and traction. I've ridden it in wet, mud, rocky, dusty, packed... it does well with all conditions.

Inflation was easy (I throw a bit of Stans goop in there and use a compressor).

Strengths:    Traction in soft over hard....on level ground.

Weaknesses:    off camber, feels like you are on marbles......SIDEWALL is REALLY soft, to the point that you have to run 35-40 lbs of pressure. Yeah, I know the minimum is 35lbs, but WTF is the point of that if your purpose of TB is traction?? Burps unless fully inflated.

Bottom Line:   
maybe a good race tire, or for a lighter/non aggressive rider. Hard to have confidence when you are worried about it breaking loose.
