Strengths:    Wears well
Great traction

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
These are mounted on AC Wide Lightning wheels, had the wtb mounted front with bonty 29-4 on rear, wore out the 29-4, just mounted Vigilante on rear, couldn't be more pleased, front is still good.
I'm 70, vision challenged, ride my hilly trails in CENTRAL TX, what I lack in skill I want to make up for with traction. I will go slower, control and predictability are valuable assets when going slow or fast, was faster today and felt Iike the tires were providing feedback, a new feeling.
These rocks eat tires, at 860 gm for the tougher version, and the front is still good is a good sign, and they were cheap at Christmas and I scored multiples.
Love it when a plan comes together, doesn't always.
Found my tire.

Strengths:    Good sized tread and traction

Weaknesses:    Incredibly difficult to mount on my rims. One rim is an Arch EX, the other is a chinese carbon. It would be very unpleasant & time consuming to change -worse if colder. Therefore Ive wasted $70.

Bottom Line:   
I bought the heavy duty coated levers thinking that would help and spare my carbon rim. I realized this tire was not worth the worry while it was on that rim, so I wanted it on my Arch. The tread would probably be great for that. However, in the process of mounting it once on the Arch, I mostly ruined the coating on the lever & scratched the rim. It was even harder to mount on this rim than the carbon.
